When I recently went to Disneyworld, I took my sample packs of Barney Butters that I got at Natural Products Expo East, and bought some bananas to have for breakfast. [I did have some granola as well]
Each day I tried a different Almond Butter. [note: they also have an espresso and vanilla bean one which I gave to my mom since I'm not a fan of espresso & a honey and chia one that I also gave to her]
I really liked all of them! I think my favorite was the Raw + Chia one. I liked the crunchyness of the chia seeds. The Cocoa and Coconut one was such a nice flavor.
Update: I found 1 more at my house: crunchy. It was so good!
However, I probably wouldn't buy them since they add sugar, oil and salt to them and I prefer to have just plain almond butter with nothing added, but these were definitely yummy tasting.
& now for everyone's question: "What did you eat at disneyworld?"
Day 1: We went to Epcot
We had lunch at the Land. There's a bunch of different quick service places there. We went to the Asian one, where they had vegan Mongolian beef. I was pretty surprised to see this as as an option!
I was pleasantly surprised by how good and flavorful this was! Really enjoyed it, as did my friend. Of course, I wish they had brown rice but can't be too picky in Disneyworld. They also had Enjoy Life cookies which I wasn't a fan of and gave my second cookie to my friend (who loved them).
Also in the food court I saw these:
It turned out the International Food & Wine festival was also taking place, which I wasn't aware of prior to coming. After some quick googling [free wifi throughout all of Disneyworld btw] I found out there was an all vegan stand!
THIS WAS SO GOOD!! I wish I was hungrier because I would have gotten 5 more. We did try to go back later on, but were too late. I've never had a crab cake in my life, but my friend had and he said it takes just like a real crab cake. I also loved whatever the sauce was. tarter?
I wasn't sure if I'd like this but it was pretty tasty! A bit too much frosting but it wasn't overly sweet. Nothing amazing either but was tasty.
For dinner we ate in Morocco at Tangine.
I got the vegetable platter minus olives (not a fan), and minus falafael because the woman working told me it's cooked with the chicken tenders. yeck. She said I could have 2 extras of something else which I thought was really nice! I got extra hummus and extra couscous. The couscous was my favorite, so flavorful! Everything tasted good.
next day we went to Hollywood Studios [previously known as MGM which I still prefer calling it!]
We had lunch at Pizza Planet. They offer vegan pizza with Follow Your Heart cheese, they told me it would take a bit longer, but I was fine with that and said they'd put some veggies on top.
For dinner, we went to the Sci-Fi Diner, which was a really cool atmosphere! The tables are cars and they show movies. I wish there was a place like this is New York! It was really neat.
friend really liked his! I guess we all have different taste buds :)
For my meal I had their veggie burger. It was so dark inside so the photo didn't come out well. It was pretty tasty and came with a side of sweet potato fries.
Next, (best) and last day. was Magic Kingdom!
I had really wanted to go to Liberty Square, because I heard they make a quinoa burger, but they were booked for the entire day! sheesh! I had met up with some friends and they suggested we eat at Tortuga Tavern in Adventureland. I got a burrito which comes with cilantro rice which has dairy in it, I asked for regular white rice instead. In my burrito, was just rice and beans..maybe there was lettuce but now I can't remember if it was in it already or if I got it from the toppings bar. They have a toppings bar where they have various salsas to add. They had also given me a cup of white rice on the side too(I didn't ask for it). My friend had also asked for white rice and they wouldn't give it to him. When they gave me my rice, the woman working said they only give it to people with allergies. (I didn't say I had an allergy, think I just said I don't eat dairy, but just an FYI for anyone who wants the plain white rice, just say you're allergic to cilantro or dairy from the regular rice) I was actually surprised, but the burrito was pretty good! I liked it.
For dinner we went here:
The people working were so helpful. [note: ALL locations in Disneyworld have books with all the ingredients. Some of the workers are nicer than others when you ask to look at it] The woman working told me I could either get the vegetable burger, but the bun wasn't vegan, but said I could get the gluten free bun that was vegan or a vegetable wrap but the dressing wasn't vegan so it'd just be the wrap with veggies. I went with the vegetable burger on the gluten free bun. They also said they'd cook it separately but that it'd take a bit longer, again, I didn't mind. The vegetable burger comes with just the burger and the bun but they also have a toppings bar. At the toppings bars they had regular onions, caramelized onions, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes.. I added a bunch of lettuce and both types of onions. I must say...wow! I couldn't believe how amazing this burger was. One of the best, if not the best, veggie burger I've had. It was SO tasty. You could see some corn and red pepper in the burger. I really couldn't believe how good it was. My non vegan friend also got the vegetable burger and also agreed about how good it was.
& that's my recap of vegan food at Disneyland. 'til next time!
