Hey everyone! I’m checking in from sunny Ft. Lauderdale, Florida! Paul and I are here for a week-long vacation, and we have some friends meeting us down here tomorrow. We left Sunday morning on a 6:40 am flight.

Even though I had a big breakfast at home, I was famished by 10 am. Luckily, I found this portable Veggie Wrap with hummus, quinoa, farro, veggies, and avocado lime dressing in the Houston airport (where we had a layover).

I snacked on that on the plane, along with some Vegan Rob’s Vegan Cheddar Puffs that I brought from home.

Washed down with a tomato-vodka cocktail because that’s the best thing about flying! Booze in the morning!

When we finally landed, Uber-ed to our beach rental, and got settled in, we were starving again. I did a quick Google scan of restaurants around us and found a Burger Fi just two blocks away! So we walked over and enjoyed burgers (Beyond Burger for me!), fries, and Landshark ale.

We’re staying a block from the beach, so after dinner, we went to check it out. Paul hasn’t seen an ocean in 21 years (I was thinking he’d never been to the ocean, but turns out, it’s just been a long time).

The rest of the night was spent chilling in the hot tub and enjoying some vodka-cranberry cocktails. On Monday morning, we woke up and headed to Publix to stock up on food for the house. It has a small kitchen with hot plate and microwave, so we can do a little cooking here to save money. When we returned, we made sandwiches. Mine has Field Roast Lentil Sage deli slices and a Violife American slice. Salad on the side with Follow Your Heart vegan ranch.

After lunch, we walked down to the pier and just watched the water for a bit.

And we met a pelican! This guy was not scared of people at all! He was just looking for free snacks.

For dinner, I found a vegan-friendly pizza wrap place! Pizza Crek serves pizza all rolled up, and they have vegan and non-vegan options. I opted for the Soy Cheese & Vegan Pepperoni Wrap! So good.

It’s Tuesday morning now, and we just finished a 3-mile run. I had some oatmeal with nut butter and fruit, and we’re thinking about heading back to the beach. I’ll check in again soon!
