How To Eat Healthy at Disneyland

Last week, I spent a fun-filled day at Disneyland! As tempting as all of the ice cream, churros, pretzels, and bread bowls can be, I chose to seek out the healthier option while at the happiest place on Earth.

Breakfast:

For lunch, the fam-bam and I went to the French Market, which is in the New Orleans Square section of the park. If you’re looking for a place where you can quickly get your grub, eat, and head to the line for the next ride, then this is the place to eat. It’s also close to Pirates of the Caribbean, which is my favorite ride at Disneyland.

Snack:

My sister went for garlic. I went for spicy. We both concluded that the label was a lie. Neither spice nor garlic was tasted. However, an OG pickle is always awesome.

Dinner:
20170920_221716Dinner was where I ended up indulging a little bit. We had decided to go to Buca di Beppo, which is not far from Disneyland park, and I knew I was about to attack some carbs!

Right away, they started us with some bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, which I can’t resist. I had a few slices, good thing they’re small.

I rounded dinner off with a serving of lemon chicken, brussel sprouts (gotta get those greens in!), and a serving of manicotti. It was so good! Not depicted was another 20170920_221933small serving of the baked ziti that so wasn’t worth it.

All of this sounds like a lot of food, but the key is to have small serving of each. I did not leave dinner feeling like Rolly from 101 Dalmatians.

 

All in all, I enjoyed my time at Disneyland, the food I ate, and ended the day without feeling like I overindulged.

  1. I definitely think quantity makes a massive difference. To be honest I think so many different foods have different effects on different people that you can pretty much eat anything as long as you don’t eat a huge tonne of it all the time.

    1. Different foods so affect people differently. Luckily, I’m not overly sensitive to specific food types, so moderation can work for me. However, I do tend to steer clear of certain foods.
