I’ve been traveling for the past week, and I’m still going. I’m not sure if travel and healthy eating can go in the same sentence, but I’m going to try to make some sense of the whole thing.

Plus, I don’t mind eating the same food all week.  I can make one meal and eat it for dinner all week, but I know some people just don’t like leftovers.
