Traveling Solo Whether I fall in love with the beauty of a country, I love to explore its food for ingredients that I may add to my dishes at home. My travels always revolve around educating myself about culture through food. Study abroad programs have provided me with the travel experiences of a lifetime. Some of the trips involved learning about healthcare systems or helping small healthcare-oriented businesses solve a problem. Now is the time to use what I have learned, to discover faraway places from my perspective. As a content creator, nutrition educator, and healthcare coach; I eat, drink, and cook my way around the world. I share my experiences with readers through travel, from smoked salmon pancakes on board a boat in Amsterdam to savory mousse at “Chez Voila” to tasting my way through a variety of Panamanian cuisine and from winging my way through a culinary class. I offer tips for eating healthy, dining solo, and meeting people along the way.
