Healthy Eats and Treats!
If one of your goals is to eat better in 2022 than Disney Springs can help with that too. It’s true that Disney World is known for it’s over-the-top indulgent treats. However, there are also plenty of better-for-you menu items.
Here are some goodies to point you in the right direction.
Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC
The ethos of Erin McKenna’s Bakery is to create delectable treats free of harmful ingredients. At the Disney Springs location you’ll find treats to accommodate guests with gluten, eggs and soy sensitivities as well as the healthy-minded. Everything in the shop is vegan, gluten-free and delicious!
Looking for the ultimate salad? We’ve got two options for you. The first is the Taqueria Ensalada at Frontera Cocina. It features Arcadian lettuce, poblano rajas, carrot, radish, avocado, tortilla strips, Cotija cheese and an avocado-lime vinaigrette. Ask to add a grilled chicken breast or garlic grilled shrimp for some extra protein.
Another great salad is the Hollywood Bowl at Planet Hollywood. This standout salad comes with Romain lettuce, house-roasted turkey breast, hard-boiled egg, avocado, Roma tomatoes and cucumber. You can also get it with bacon, swiss cheese and croutons or opt out of these goodies if you’re counting calories. The salad comes with Thousand Island Dressing but you can also swap it out for a balsamic vinaigrette.
The Polite Pig
Those looking for food on the go will love the Polite Caesar and Cobb Salads at The Polite Pig. Another of our favorites is the Chicken Salad Wrap. This comes out tops for those looking for a handheld options. The Polite Pig also has some tasty Market Sides including Roasted Beets, Tomato Watermelon Salad, Grilled Street Corn and Polite Baked Beans.
If you’ll have little ones in tow, we recommend the Roast Smoked Turkey Breast and Grilled Skinless Chicken Breast.
Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant
Though Raglan Road is synonymous with comfort food, the menu does have some delectable treats including This Shepherd Went Vegan. This plant-based Shepherd’s Pie is even better than the real thing. Another great option is the Raglan Risotto with wild mushrooms, glazed baby vegetables, tarragon and shaved parmesan.
On a gluten-free diet? Ask your server to point out popular items on the menu that are gluten-free.
One of my favorite places to go for a lite bite is Yesake. We recommend you start with the Tofu Power Bowl is a hearty mix of tofu, avocado, spinach, carrot, cabbage, cucumber, tempura crunch and wasabi ponzu.
