Eating healthy at Disneyworld-Research phase 1

I’ve been doing a TON of research on eating healthy at Disneyworld, because our trip is less than 4 weeks away. The number one tip/advice I have found when it comes to eating healthy at Disneyworld is to prepare to have plenty of options.

I plan to research each parks dining options and find at least 3 alternatives for lunch & dinner. We plan to eat breakfast at our timeshare and buy snacks at Costco when we arrive to save time & money. I’ve looked at the below blogs, with extremely insightful information.

  • DisneyfoodbblogGreat list of lunch & dinner options at each park, a list of eat this not that snack alternatives, and tips to eating healthy.
  • Allears.netYou can find the price lists, and up to date menu for every dining service in the parks.
  • PassporterA great resource for planning & this particular article sums up the best tips to eating healthy at Disneyworld
  • Disneyworld’s official site-Of course going to the official site gives a more in-depth perspective on different dining options/information that may not have been mentioned in the above sites.

My plan is to post my perspective meals I can’t wait to try once I’m at Disneyworld per park that would be a healthy, and satisfying option. Researching phase 1 of many?

If you have any advice on eating healthy not only at Disneyworld, but on vacation in general, please let me know!

Happy May 1st everyone! I can’t believe how fast time flies!

Homemade Granola…

So I’ve been completely obsessed with Pintrest, especially when it comes to researching new recipe ideas. This week I’ve been feeling a lot hungrier, and faster than usual. Typically after my yogurt, my snack before lunch. My trainer says it’s usually due to an increased metabolism. He wants me to add an additional 100 calories, a healthy balanced protein/carbohydrate mix. .

I thought the perfect match to my Greek yogurt is, of course GRANOLA! So I searched homemade granola on Pintrest and came across this recipe from Daisy Janie-

Basic Granola

6 C rolled oats
1/2 C olive oil or grapeseed oil
1/2 C pure honey
1-1/2 t vanilla extract
1 t cinnamon
dash of salt

Add oats to large bowl. In separate bowl, blend other ingredients. Pour liquid mixture over oats & stir until well coated. Spread evenly onto jellyroll pan or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 mins; every 10 mins, remove from oven, gently stir & turn so it doesn’t burn on the bottom. Let cool until crisp.

Store at room temp for up to 2 weeks

I’m super excited to try this new recipe, and hope I can make some soon!

Do you have any suggestions or variations of homemade granola?
