So here I am again, yesterday I came home from Croatia where I was on holiday with my mum. We were staying near Dubrovnik in the hotel with „all inclusive“ and today I’d like to tell you what I ate here and how looked my vegan diet in Croatia.
First day I remember I ate some oats with dried fruits but I felt awful after it (I discovered that dried plums don’t make me feel good at all :(), so I decided to try something else. And for the rest of our stay there I ate for breakfast lots of bread (like 6-7 slices) with apricot marmalade :) It was delicious combo, but believe me that in the last days of our holiday all I was thinking about was my oatmeal <3
When you first hear „all inclusive“ you think it should be heaven for vegans, but situation in my hotel wasn’t so great, because a lot of veggies like corn, peas and other mixes of vegetables were made with butter. I couldn’t understand that and for me it’s still crazy to add butter to every vegetable. Anyway, I hadn’t any other choice so I was eating plain rice (I found it next to soups) with raw veggies like lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and also other ones like beetrots, red beans and ketchup. Yess, it also was pretty good but after few days I got sick of rice and now after coming back home I really don’t crave it at all.
For first few days I was eating exactly the same meals what for lunches but on third or maybe fourth day I found out boiled potatoes in a „secret place“ outside the hotel and I fell in love with them. So I was eating boiled potatoes with beetroots aka my big love also at home.
And that was everything I was eating at the hotel. How I said before, we were staying near Dubrovnik and one day we went there for a trip so we ate dinner in Dubrovnik. They have one vegetarian restaurant there and we found it happily. I ate veggie burger but they gave it to me without bread (really strange). It was delicious, but the size of this meal was so small that after eating it I was craving more food. I found with my mom some supermarket and we bought there six bananas :D
And that was everything I was eating on our holiday in Croatia. It would look different for sure if we didn’t have „all inclusive“, but happily we had it and finding some vegan options (maybe not the most delicious every time) was much easier for me :)
