Dinner on Holland America Cruise

I'm always posting about the food I eat around the world.  However, since my last post, my eating habits have changed.  After doing some research and watching several films like Forks Over Knives and Cowspiracy, I became vegan several months ago.  This post by Lauren of Justin + Lauren is a great explanation of how I feel.  That being said, these pictures are from a cruise we took over a year ago, so the pictures do not reflect the way I eat now.

I was happy to see as I edited these photos that there are some vegan and vegetarian options.  Below are the appetizers we started with.

Now I would definitely order the vegetable tagine, but at the time, these were the entrees we ordered.

We can't forget about dessert!  I would now have raspberry sorbet and the fruit plate.  Yum!

I have always been happy with the food on any Holland America Cruise.  I honestly can't wait to take my next one and try all the vegan options.

Pesto Heaven in Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy

I love pesto!  So when I heard that Santa Margherita Ligure was known for some of the best pesto in Italy, I had to have it.

Beautiful church in Santa Margherita Ligure

This church was one of the many things my family saw as I dragged them all over the city to find the best restaurant.  We were enjoying all the sights, but we were getting really hungry.  The market below was very tempting.

New Year in Puerto Rico

2015 was one of the most challenging years of my life.  So I decided to start 2016 off with a last minute family trip to Puerto Rico...and I'm glad I did.  What a great way to kick off a brand new year!

Caribe HIlton in San Juan, Puerto Rico

We knew we wanted a warm destination, but with our passports expiring in the spring, our choices were limited.  Make sure you check passport regulations for the country you want to visit.  For example, to travel to Mexico, your passport can't be expiring within six months of your trip.  But to travel to the Bahamas, you can go anytime up until your passport expires.  And Puerto Rico is best of all (for US citizens), you don't even need a passport.

Portofino, Italy

Portofino, Italy

After my long hike to Portofino, I was ready to sit down and have a drink.  I was so thirsty, that I opted for a cold soda instead of wine...that's really thirsty people!  The rest of my family was feeling the same way.  So we grabbed a table and each ordered a soda.  The drink was refreshing and the people watching was great, but the waiters were so rude.  When I asked for the restroom he actually started yelling at me in Italian because I couldn't understand his English.  To top off the event, our bill came.  It was $60 with tip for our FOUR sodas.  Portofino is not a cheap place, folks.
