Eating GlutenFree, DairyFree & SugarFree at a Resort

    Recently spent 10 days in Cuba.

    3 nights in Havana and 6 nights at the Melua Veradaro.

    Cuban food was excellent in both spots. Shitty food in Cuba is a direct result of going to places with shitty food.

    Zero weight gain.

    Lots of choice to eat well but clean. Great bread desserts and the world’s best ice cream.

    Using a Garmin Vivofit I averaged 15000 steps in Havana or at the resort by lying around the pool, walking the beach, riding the waves and reading 3 books.

    Lots of excellent food.

    Lots of beer rum and wine.

    Lots of Puna Colodas….no.

    Bit of common sense and a lot of bottled water.

    Larry, glad to hear you had a great time in Cuba. We were looking at going there but the weather was not on our side a the time. Great choices in eating clean, getting walking in and drinking water. Sounds like you had a lot of fun, read books and based on the photos I saw, took in some beautiful sites. Cheers to good health!

    Going Gluten free is great for the 33 thousand Canadians with Celiac disease

    Agreed and also for those of us who are gluten intolerant. People with Celiac have to be diligent about not getting any gluten into their diet. Those of us with sensitivities just feel like crap after we get tempted so having a strategy and plan to feel good is so worth it. Thanks for adding your comments to this post Larry. Jo-Ann

    Great video, Jo-Ann, and your husband’s thumb added a nice touch too

    I used to wonder what the shadow at the top of some of my photos was … yup, my thumb.

    Haha Marlene. We did several takes and the sun was getting hot. Although I looked at it for lighting, content and clarity, i did not think to look for the thumb as all the other takes were thumbless.

    Thanks Elizabeth. Yes, going on any vacation with food restrictions can be challenging. I am glad you found my tips useful. And Yes, more videos are to come!

    Cheers, Jo-Ann
