Change your mood, change your food

IMG_0044Hello from Newport, R.I.! My name is Meredith, and I am currently a food obsessed college student studying at Salve Regina University.  “Change your mood, change your food,” is a motto that I have created for myself to live by everyday.  I strongly believe that what I eat greatly affects how I feel for the rest of the day.

During my freshman year at Salve, I fell in love with Newport for all of the unique food options that the city has to offer.  From sandwich shops to take out to sit down restaurants, Newport has everything a college student needs to enjoy a great meal.

I will post a variety of my personal favorite places to get fabulous food in Newport, as well as tips on how to make sure that food your eating is making you feel the best you can be!
