Indulge in Healthy Eating . . . Sarasota Style!

Many of us travel to Siesta Key to relax and allow the tranquil gulf waters to restore our bodies to a healthy, energized state of mind. Siesta Key is a top destination spot in the US and many claim there is a wonderful healing process they experience while walking the miles and miles of crystal quartz sand that can only be found in Sarasota, Florida.

What we eat on vacation is often just as important as where we go. Eating organic, healthy, interesting, and new food is also a part of what helps us truly feel alive and restored. Thankfully eating healthy doesn’t mean depriving ourselves or our appetites. Making healthy choices is exciting and fun when dining at VEG, a vegetarian and seafood restaurant located on Gulf Gate Drive in Sarasota, Florida, only a few minutes from Siesta Key.
