veg ‘n’ out: magic kingdom

Dis­ney World’s theme parks are filled with fun, excitement and mag­i­cal expe­ri­ences for every­one to enjoy. My favorite rides in the Magic King­dom included the speed and thrills of Space Moun­tain or get­ting soaked on Splash Moun­tain. For a lit­tle more relax­ing expe­ri­ence, I really enjoyed Mickey’s Phil­har­Magic 3D movie and the audi­ence inter­ac­tive Mon­sters, Inc. Laugh Floor. All the fun and laugh­ter... Read More

Winter Park’s trendy living cuisine

Tucked along a side street of the afflu­ent Park Avenue area of Win­ter Park, Florida is a restau­rant serv­ing cui­sine based on the raw/living food lifestyle.  Cafe 118° exem­pli­fies a fresh and deli­cious liv­ing cui­sine menu.

A Few Good Apples

    Tucked away in the cor­ner of Sea­grove Plaza on beau­ti­ful state road 30-a, sur­rounded by sub shops and kitschy beach mer­chan­dis­ers is a fresh and tasty café, A Few Good Apples.

I had trou­ble choos­ing between home­made veg­e­tar­ian... Read More
