This is my first post in two years, but I'm so passionate about natural living and helping CPs so I wanted to write this for y'all! During my second Disney College Program (Spring 2017) my roommate taught me a lot about natural living. Now I choose it every day because I see a difference in my body and health when I do, also because it's easier to find foods that accommodate my allergies at natural grocers. So I wanted to share some resources to help you find natural foods in Orlando! (And how to get there with or without a car.)

This is your best high end option. You're probably familiar with Whole Foods aka "whole paycheck". This isn't my favorite option for general shopping because of the price, but their store brand (Whole Foods or 365) options and bulk foods are decently priced. (They also have the best price on fair trade chocolate chips!) If you're looking for a deal and have amazon prime, don't forget to check the weekly Prime deals, they usually offer 30% off a few things each week.
Transportation: 15 minute drive from housing, $13 Lyft, or take the bus to Walmart and it's a 15 minute walk from there (I don't recommend this at night....from experience.)
This week has been eventful to say the least! Last Tuesday my toe was numb after work, and it's still not quite right, I don't know why. I thought that would be the biggest event of my week...boy do I wish it was!
I finally finished my custodial training on Thursday, only to find out I need to be recast because a drivers license is required for the role. All this after working eight days straight! Phew!
After I got off work on Thursday I was ecstatic to finally get to play in the parks the next two days without having to worry about working later. But that was not how my "weekend" would play out! I woke up bright and early Friday morning and found myself puking! (Code V as we call it here.) I spent the entire day lying in bed with a high fever and a few more episodes of code v. The next day continued with the fever, getting up to 104.5 degrees. The next day I still had a fever and was too dizzy to walk, which meant I had to call in sick to work. (eeek! Nooo!!!) That night my roommate took me to the emergency room and they pumped fluids into me (so I could walk straight again), and we figured out I had a bladder infection. I was ordered a round on antibiotics and 3 days rest.
Today is my second of those three days rest. I'm still a little dizzy and having a hard time eating but the antibiotics are starting to work. It's all been an adventure (with lots of crying)! I'm ready to go back to playing in the parks and working again! After the stye in my eye goes away. (just a little gift today to top it off!)
Stay safe! Stay healthy!
