6 Nashville Eats You Can't Miss While You're In Music City
Shelby Arnett

Nashville, Tennessee is one of my absolute favorite cities in the world. Having been four times in the past two years, each visit to the city gives me a brand new sense of energy and excitement to find new sights, and more importantly, new food. After college, I could see myself heading straight for Nashville; that is how much I love being there.

Though Nashville is popularly known for its country music, -- another reason why I love the city -- the restaurants surrounding downtown and The Gulch are to die for. On weekends, and even on some weekdays, the line will gradually form outside of Nashville's most popular restaurants. Despite the time of the day, tourists and natives alike just wait to get a taste of the best Nashville hot chicken or one of the most popular doughnuts in town.

These 6 restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries are ones you simply can't miss the next time you're in Nashville. Mark my words, you're guaranteed to be coming back next time!

Biscuit Love

Shelby Arnett

Located in The Gulch and Hillsboro Village, Biscuit Love is my favorite breakfast restaurant in the world, no exaggerations. As you may have guessed, Biscuit Love offers a multitude of biscuit related breakfast options. Pictured above is the Easty Nasty, which is a biscuit topped with fried chicken, cheese, and sausage gravy. That's right. Did I mention this biscuit has been named "Best Sandwich in America" too? You heard it here.

The Row Kitchen & Pub

Shelby Arnett

The Row has it all. Breakfast, brunch, lunch, AND dinner menus are offered to visitors, along with a late-night menu for those who stay for the live music. When it's warm out, this casual restaurant opens up their glass "garage doors" so those dining in can enjoy the weather while chowing down on crispy French fries and delicious burgers. A fire pit sits outside of the restaurant for outdoor seating as well.

Hattie B's Hot Chicken

Shelby Arnett

Hattie B's Hot Chicken is the BEST hot chicken I've ever tasted in my life. When I visited the restaurant in January, I arrived only a half-hour they opened. Nonetheless, a line had already formed outside the entrance. I patiently waited in the 45-minute long line, and boy, was it worth it. Their pimento cheese Mac and cheese combined with the heat from the jumbo tenders had me full for hours. And if you're craving something sweet after this savory meal, I highly suggest the banana pudding.

Five Daughters Bakery

Shelby Arnett

If you're someone with a sweet tooth, Five Daughters Bakery is the place to go. This adorable bakery's original location is actually in Franklin but has expanded to several locations Nashville as well. The first time I visited Nashville, this bakery was my first stop in 12th South. Five Daughters Bakery carries seasonal doughnuts, staple flavors, like chocolate sea salt and vanilla cream, as well as other pastries like cookies.

Frothy Monkey

Shelby Arnett

Located all throughout Tennessee, the original Frothy Monkey is on 12th South, right where this photo was taken! Frothy Monkey is an extremely cool coffee shop that also doubles as a restaurant. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served here, as well as a wide variety of desserts. Aside from signature coffees and teas, Frothy Monkey also serves wine and cocktails to those 21 years of age or older.

Just Love Coffee

Shelby Arnett

Just Love Coffee is a coffee roaster I discovered on a walk to The Gulch on New Year's Eve. As soon as I walked in, I was so surprised that I had never found such a cute coffee cafe before. Just Love Coffee comes with a delicious food menu alongside delicious lattes and coffees. Their mission stands out to customers: "We believe everyone deserves love and coffee." Who wouldn't want to buy a coffee from here after that? Not only is their coffee amazing, but their customer service is so genuine.

These 6 restaurants, bakeries, and cafes are only a few of the many incredible eateries in Nashville. I can't wait to go back for the fifth time sometime soon and experience even more delicious food and coffee. If you haven't been to Nashville yet, you now have a food guide for your upcoming trip!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

If 'Hockey Is For Everyone,' Why Is Matt Dumba So Alone In Fighting For Racial Equality In The NHL?

If the NHL is using #WeSkateForEquality, why is Dumba alone in the fight for equality?

On Saturday, August 1, 2020, the National Hockey League resumed play for the first time since March 12, 2020. The season was paused due to the growing coronavirus (COVID-19) spread and a concern for the players contacting the virus and spreading it through the League. Fans and players sat and waited for the hockey season to resume, which took more than 140 days.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.
