Anyone from New Jersey knows that we basically have the best food ever. From pizza to bagels, we've got it all. Here are a few of the best places that you must try at the Jersey Shore!

1. Broad St. Dough Co & Top That Donuts

I felt I needed to mention both of these doughnut places at once because I seriously couldn't decide which was best! Broad St. Dough Co is in Oakhurst, NJ and Top That Donuts is in Point Pleasant, NJ. Both are seriously so delicious.

2. Rook Coffee

Rook is seriously the best coffee ever. They also offer bagels and other quick to-go foods that are seriously awesome. Rook has locations all over the Jersey Shore!

3. The Buttered Biscuit

This cafe is seriously the best place for breakfast or brunch! Their food is so delicious (the hash browns -- seriously so good) and it's in the cutest little town, Bradley Beach, NJ!

4. Strollos

This is the best Italian Ice at the Jersey Shore without a doubt. You can find Strollos in Belmar or Point Pleasant, but you have to try their Italian ice swirl ASAP!

5. The Committed Pig

The Committed Pig is definitely the best place to get a burger. They have options for everyone, including turkey burgers, and they also have breakfast! They're located in Manasquan, NJ.

6. Meemom's Kitchen

Meemom's french toast is heavenly. So. Good. You can find Meemom's in both Wall and Middletown!

7. Pete and Elda's / Carmen's Pizzeria

Pete and Elda's is seriously the best thin crust pizza ever. The usual long wait for a table is so worth it. You can find Pete and Elda's in Neptune City!

8. Bubbakoo's Burrito

Bubbakoo's burritos are so good and they have so many different options other than burritos! They have locations all around the Jersey shore.

9. Playa Bowls

Playa bowls are the best for hot summer days (and every other day for that matter). With choices of acai bowls, pitaya bowls, smoothies and a ton of other yummy options, you have to try them next time you're by the beach! They have locations in Belmar and Manasquan.

10. Fins

Fins is one of my favorite places for wraps. Their Hawaii 5-0 wrap is so delicious! Fins has locations in Bradley Beach, Sea Girt and Brick!

11. The Breakfast Club/Big City Bagels

Again, I had to include both places because they're both so good! The Breakfast Club and Big City Bagels' pork roll egg and cheese with a hash brown is the best around. The Breakfast Club is in Farmingdale and Big City Bagels is in Howell.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.

To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

5 Things You Need To Know About Thinx Underwear

Those of you with a uterus, listen up.

I first heard about Thinx underwear two years ago while on a subway in Washington DC. I thought the whole idea of leakproof underwear sounded a bit too much like diapers and brushed the product aside. Fast forward two years, my mom states that she is going to buy a pair to try and offered to get me one too. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I did!

If you're not familiar with Thinx allow me to explain. It's a company that prides themselves on creating underwear specifically designed for individuals to wear during their periods. Looking at the reviews, everyone seemed to love them, and after trying them out for myself, I must say I like them quite a lot. Here are a few important things to know about Thinx underwear.

1. It doesn’t always replace your pads/tampons

Thinx may not replace tampons, but it can help cut back the amount you use.

I learned this the hard way that if you have a heavy flow, you can't wear Thinx on its own. If you have a light flow, you could get away with only wearing these, but for us poor souls with heavy flows, I recommend making these your new period underwear. You never have to worry about any leaks, even at night!

2. They don't stain

Behold! No bloodstains!

If you leak onto this underwear, fear not. Merely rinse them in the sink and then throw them in the wash like normal and boom! Clean underwear. No more ugly stained underwear to keep in the corner of your drawer.

3. There’s a bunch of cute designs/colors

There's something for everyone!

One thing I must say about Thinx is that they have a wide variety of options. There are several different cuts, and almost all of them come in different colors options as well. They seem to be introducing new colors all the time, so keep an eye out for one you like.

4. They are super comfy!

These feel just like normal underwear.

When I got my pair, I was worried that this underwear would feel like wearing a diaper or something else uncomfortable, but that was not the case at all! This underwear when you're wearing it feels like normal underwear, and while you're washing it, it feels like a swimsuit.

5. They donate to a good cause

Everyone should have access to period products. Period.

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0795/1599/t/248/assets/menstrual-equity-slider-1.jpg?226286

For every pair of underwear that you buy, the company donates a pair to someone in need. It seems like most are sent to developing countries where women do not have access to proper menstruation hygiene products. In addition to this, Thinx was designed to help cut back the number of disposable pads entering landfills. They designed this underwear to be a more sustainable alternative for people with periods!
