About Me

Welcome to Fit to Wander!

I’m Rachel and I am extremely passionate about traveling, food and fitness.  I currently live in San Diego, CA with my husband Tristin (known as T on the blog), our one year old son, and our adorable lioness pup Scout.  I’ve started this blog to share and cultivate my life passions as well as to hopefully help improve my reader’s health and well-being by promoting living a balanced lifestyle. I believe that being healthy involves more than exercise and healthy eating.  It also involves improving one’s state of mind.  My background in psychology has led me to view health from a holistic perspective.  I believe that health is not only shaped by what we put into our bodies, but also how much we move, how well we sleep and our mindset.

Yes, I do eat Paleo, well, more Primal, but I love to eat.  In fact, love is a bit of an understatement. I might be slightly obsessed with food and have been known to even become “hangry” (thankfully, I have a very patient husband).  I’m hesitant to put a label on how I eat because of the stigmas that can come along with any label, but the most important thing to me is to just eat real, unprocessed food as often as possible. I definitely believe in the 90%/10% rule, as there is no way I am ever going to give up chocolate, especially not dark chocolate!

The one thing I love more than eating is traveling (although it is a close race). I love everything about traveling…whether I am exploring an ancient ruin, wandering around a new city, learning the history of the country, people watching while sitting in a cafe or trying a new cuisine that the country is known for.  If I had to pick out the one thing that I love most about traveling, it would be that every time I set out, traveling opens me up to an array of new experiences, which appeases my almost insatiable curiosity.

If you love food, love to travel, and love living a healthy/active lifestyle, then you’ve come to the right place.  I invite you to share in my journey as I wander down this ever-changing path called life.
