The new Regatta buffet @bahamarresorts is one of the best buffets I’ve seen. They have lots of vegetarian and vegan items like hummus bowls and veggie breakfast burritos and they even have a popsicle bar!! #buffet #breakfast #brunch #thebahamas

Wow my friend hit it out of the ball park or should I say the art studio today with this cake, marshmallows and cookies for her daughter’s 5th birthday. Not only were they all their own works of art, they were delicious too. My favorite was the white chocolate covered rose marshmallow pops. So good! #happybirthday #birthdaycake #birthdaypops #art

Eat the rainbow! It’s easy and fun to put together salads like this one. Make sure to include some vegan protein to make it filling. The chickpeas do the trick here. #vegetarian #vegan #salad

Detoxing from a week of Disney food! It doesn’t feel healthy when it’s this good either. This is avocado toast with egg whites and a little feta. You can make this vegan by doing a tofu scramble and omitting the feta. #vegan #vegetarian #avocadotoast

Buffalo chicken pizza, hold the chicken, from @thepuborlando. Think outside the box and ask for meat to be removed from certain entrees. It’s easy and most restaurants will accommodate. #vegetarian #buffalochicken #pizza
