Real Food Gypsy

Thanks for checking out my blog! Real Food Gypsy is a food & travel blog created to equip others with the knowledge and ability to live a healthier life. I truly believe we should be able to eat the foods we love and not feel guilty. My favorite thing in the world is to travel and find #RealFood restaurants, which is how the idea of “Real Food Gypsy” came along. Traveling and eating healthy should be easy and not frustrating, & I am determined to find all the cool spots. I basically travel so I can eat, because I think culture is best experienced through food…no matter where you are.

It’s all about REAL FOOD, not calorie counting. So yes, you will find everything from juice bars to comfort food, ice cream, and burgers on here. If a restaurant is listed, that means it fits one or more categories, and I’ve done my best to specify that with each post.  I’m all about buzzwords like: Organic, anti-biotic & hormone free, grass-fed, pasture-raised, farm-to-table, local, sustainable, and lifestyle friendly because I’ve seen first hand how these things can impact our life and our world.

The purpose of this blog is to leave you feeling encouraged and hopeful as you pursue your personal journey to health. I’ve also mixed in some simple recipes, because what can I say… I love to share something if I think it tastes good!

Meet my little family and learn 10 random facts about me below! ♡♡♡


10 Random Facts:

I’m from North Carolina, but currently live in Salt Lake City (& yes I have an accent). I’ve lived

in 5 different states in the past several years including NC, VA, GA, CA. & UT.

I am dog obsessed, so I talk a lot about my two pups Evra & Winnie. Evra is an Australian shepherd-corgi and Winnie is a cute little Labradoodle.

I eloped in California, March 7th, 2015 to a dark haired, blue-eyed creative director and hottie, Jered. It was our own kind of magical, without all the stress and hassle.

I absolutely love breakfast, gelato, white-bricked buildings, traveling, and being outdoors.

I love, love, love ice-cream and gelato!

I have a B.S. in Health and Wellness and my Master’s from the University of Virginia *GOOO HOO’S* where I focused on motivation, identity development, and healthy behaviors.

I’m passionate about living a healthy & holistic life, fitness (HIIT, cycling, & running), organic food, and healthy restaurant hunting.

I have to get at least 8 hours of sleep.

My dream is East Coast (DC) living, white brick house, black door. OH…and more pups! 🙂

I don’t categorize myself under a specific diet, but I’ll only eat meat if it’s sustainable, antibiotic-free, grass-fed, and organic.



Believe.. Hope.. && Encourage one another.
