Florida in April is hit or miss, and we missed it. While there on vacation, it rained, stormed, and was cloudy 90% of the time. But we didn’t let it stop us!! I had an absolute blast and can’t wait to go back again, let alone go on another vacation with my boyfriend anywhere cause he’s pretty cool.
As soon as we got to the resort we were blown away with the size of our villa and the fact that we had our own kitchen and cookware to enjoy!
So, of course we went grocery shopping. Here’s our luggage cart full of groceries and then unloaded in the fridge. I’ll give ya 10 bucks if you can guess whose food is whose 🙂
Here’s our first dinner we made in our villa that night…
We explored the resort we were staying at, Kissimmee, Winter Park, Orlando, Tampa, and St. Cloud (visiting my grandmother) while in Florida and there was never a dull moment and it sure took me a few days to rest back up once we returned to NY. From eating at a pretty awesome vegan restaurant called “Ethos” in Winter Park, to getting rained out at Busch Gardens, to screaming our heads off on the roller coasters at Universal Studios, we enjoyed ourselves almost too much. Vacations are always a blast but even better when you’re spending them with the people that you love, making memories that will last a life time.
Here’s some of the food I enjoyed while in Florida — all of which is definitely not vegan or nutritarian, but I promise I tried my best!
Ethos restaurant in Winter Park: We had a seitan calzone and philly cheese steak sandwich with ginger ale sodas that were to die for!
Also while in Winter Park we stopped at a specialty candy shop where I was able to pick up some vegan chocolate 🙂
One night we ventured out to Downtown Disney for dinner and a movie. For dinner we stopped by the B.B. Blues House. I had an amazing fresh fish sandwich with sweet potato fries as we enjoyed some live music on the street.
We also ventured to City Walk at Universal Studios for dinner, dancing and karaoke. We ate at Bob Marley’s Tribute to Freedom restaurant. I had jerk chicken, obvi!
Then we danced it all of at the karaoke joint, a nightclub and back at Bob Marley’s place for some live reggae, our favorite.
Our last night in Florida, after a long day at Universal Studios we had dinner at the resort. Here’s a picture of the fried gator that we had for an appetizer. For my entree I had blackened mahi mahi with pineapple mango salad and brown rice but forgot to take a picture of it.
