My low fat vegan trip to Savannah, GA!!

Hey friends of the fruit!

I just got back from my family trip to Savannah, GA.  I enjoyed the beautiful historic downtown district, visited the farmer's market at Forsythe Park (look for that video soon!), rode the trolley down to the river, went to the beach at Tybee Island, visited the City Market downtown, and maintained my high fruit, low fat vegan lifestyle while eating at Our Lady and Sons and various other eateries.

It is so important to plan ahead before going out of town.  I brought 3 cases of mangoes, a golden dewlicious melon, a box of dates, and bananas.  I bought local peaches while I was in Savannah, too!  I also brought a ton of sweet potatoes, several varieties of regular potatoes, quinoa, couscous, and pasta for my dinners. I looked ahead on the internet for vegan/vegetarian restaurants and found a place called the Sentient Bean, which had a market beside it called Brighter Days Natural Foods.

At the Sentient Bean, I noticed on the menu that they offered stuffed baked potatoes, so I ordered 3 huge plain baked potatoes.  I also got a side salad no dressing.  It was delicious and low fat vegan!  Brighter Day market had a juice bar and lots of vegan foods!  I had also used an app called Happy Cow to locate these hidden treasures!

You can enjoy a healthy vacation anywhere with a little research and planning!
