Preparing For April Showers In Orlando

Living in Florida forces you to participate in outdoor activities, however, we experience a rainy season that can limit any outdoor activity.  Knowing this, I have created my own saying “one rain drop doesn’t stop the fun”.

How do I plan for rainy days you might ask? I use this time to partake in indoor actives with my friends and family. April has become what I call “good eats month”. During the month of April when the weather in Florida is a bit rainy I host a cookout with friends and family on the weekends to cook try new recipes. This is my opportunity to explore new foods. I start my search online  looking through Pinterest and also my favorite food bloggers. Sometimes I give total control of my kitchen over to a friend and let them prepare a meal for the group.  We’ve sort of made a little competition out of who can make the best meal.

I’m kicking around this idea for our next outing.  I want to head over to Whole Foods with some of my friends and family to sample new vegan foods. I know your probably thinking “I’m not vegan” well I have some news for you, you don’t have to be 100% vegan to try the food.  I’m excited about this outing and hope to gain new tips and recipes for cooking.

Every Tuesday morning join local artisans and growers from around Central Florida for a locally driven Farmer’s Market on our front patio of Whole Foods Market Dr. Phillips.

Vendors Include:

  • Bee’s Wax Soaps & Candles
  • Artisan Pastries
  • Granola Bars
  • Seasonal Fresh Produce
  • Culturally Inspired Lunch Options
  • Local Honey
  • And much more

Overall, I am a pretty healthy eater therefore I strive to find food thats good for me. As we all know different foods can increase your energy levels and improve your mood so why not grab some “good eats”, sounds like a win win to me.

Let me know if any of you have planned outing to try new foods. I would love to hear from you.

Let’s make April a fun month!
