In my year and a half of being a strict vegan, I have learned how to travel, and still live a fun and fulfilling life, yet remain on a plants-only diet.
For shorter trips, I stock up on fruits and nuts from Whole Foods. But when I’m travelling out of state, it usually requires some research up front.
However, that was not the case with my trip last week to Pombano Beach as an attendee of Toyota’s “Family Reunion” Press Preview. I’ve learned from previous interactions with Toyota that they always make sure I discreetly am taken care of when it comes to meals.
While my fellow journalists, writers, and bloggers alongside me enjoyed the finest steaks (and I’m genuinely happy for them, by the way!) I meanwhile enjoyed whatever the creative chef of the hotel’s restaurants prepared for me.
(I am pictured below in between new friend Chris Brewer and Malcom Hogan on Automotive Addicts.)
I hope to be the coolest vegan you know; not pretentious or judgmental. I chose this lifestyle not because of animal’s rights, but because my eczema (dshyodrosis, to be exact), my 22 years of constant sinus pressure and reoccurring sinusitis, my acne, and my allergies to animals all went away permanently, within 48 hours of me adopting a plants only diet; consistently of only vegetables, fruits, grains, beans, seeds, and nuts, what I call “The Big 6.”
For dinner at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, I had a veggie pasta dish and even a vegan sorbet dessert.
For lunch the next day they prepared a vegan burger patty for me, alongside an array of veggies and fruit.
Of course it was wonderful.
I know this may sound contradictory, but I’m not a picky eater…
It’s okay to laugh to yourself quietly on that one.
But really, I just love anything that’s vegan. And when someone goes the extra mile, like the crew at Ponte Vedra Inn & Club did for me, it really means a lot.
I never want to draw extra attention to myself in how I eat, but at the same time, I am passionate to share my story of natural healing with others who are open-minded to learning what might work for them as well.
So, with that being said, if you’re planning on visiting Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, just tell the waiter or waitress your about vegan needs, and they will be able to discreetly take care of you.
