Shopping In Naples Series: Staying Healthy on Vacation, Part 2 of 3

Have you ever gone on vacation and returned to work feeling sluggish and even bloated? How many times have you said you needed to take a vacation from your vacation? Weight gain and generally bad eating habits are a popular side effect of taking a vacation.  Hotels and cruise ships offer meals high in sodium and fat, offer in the form of a buffet, where there is absolutely no portion control.

One of the biggest perks of staying in a vacation home while visiting Naples is having full use of a family sized kitchen and a grill out by the pool.  Besides the budget friendly benefits of choosing to stay in and cook than go out to eat for every meal, preparing healthy meals and snacks for the family makes it so your healthy lifestyle doesn’t miss a beat.

Hands down, the best place in Naples for a vast selection of fresh meats is Jimmy P’s.  A family owned butcher shop and deli, Jimmy P’s specializes in Kobe Beef, Kurobuta Pork, Poulty, Lamb, Veal and other exotic meats.  You can take your purchase “to go” and fire up the grill at your vacation home, or take a seat and have them prepare it however you would like it cooked right there in the little café.

Old World Market, just a quick drive from all of our vacation homes, has something good for everyone, offering over 900 items from Greece, Macedonia, Turkey, Bulgeria, Egypt, Albania, Croatia and Serbia, to name a few.  Visitors of Naples Florida Vacation Homes go to enjoy tasty yogurts, cheeses, dried meat cuts, salami, pates, and even sweets from the “old country”.
