    Yes you read the title correctly You can eat healthily whilst on holiday. Here are some suggestions from each park:

    Magic Kingdom Park

    At Columbia Harbor House you can try the grilled salmon with fresh steamed broccoli and couscous.

    There is also the Crystal Palace their buffet has a choice of healthy options including, edamame salad; shrimp, mango and black bean salad; turkey vegetable soup; beet salad; papaya and arugula salad; Thai curry mussels, and roast turkey. Just remember to stay away from the dessert bar.

    Epcot

    In World Showcase, you have plenty of options available, Sushi in the Japan Pavilion; grilled veggie tacos at La Hacienda de San Angel in the Mexico Pavilion (ask for the vegetarian menu); the Chinese chicken salad at Nine Dragons Restaurant in the China Pavilion; the lemon chicken or kebabs at Restaurant Marrakesh in the Morocco Pavilion; the vegetable curry with lentil bread at Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room in the United Kingdom Pavilion, and the jumbo shrimp with cannelloni beans, olive oil and lemon juice at Via Napoli in the Italy Pavilion.

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    The grilled veggie sandwich at Backlot Express is delicious but remember to ask for carrot sticks and not fries

    For dinner you could always visit Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano for a bowl of the whole wheat campanelle pasta (shaped like a little bell) served with broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh spinach and sweet onions.

    Animal Kingdom

    In Animal Kingdom the Flame Tree Barbecue has their house smoked half chicken. If you want something more than a snack then at the Tusker House Restaurant, you can pick and choose from all sorts of salads; spiced tandoori tofu; couscous with roasted veggies; salmon, and curry chicken in their buffet.

    Finally there is always the option of a piece of fresh fruit from one of the carts instead of popcorn or chips.

    What other food and places can you think of that serves healthy food?

    That's more or less the same as Chris says

    Whenever we had a counter service combo meal we always asked for fruit instead of the dessert.

    I usually start being bad but midway my tummy tells me to start being good! Since we usually get the dining plan I always order dessert but don't feel bad about leaving most of it on my plate!!!( except for lunch when the desserts usually stink!!!)

    I do use vacations as an excuse to continue my poor eating habits...

    But the day I ask for carrots instead of fries??? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Not even at my most healthy food "nazi" stages would I do THAT?! LOLOL.

    I love the choices in EPCOT's world showcase. I do make healthy selections often, for all my tough talk. Too much greasy stuff always makes me ill.
