Sandwiches are fantastic because you can put whatever you want on them! Picky eaters in the house? Let them choose their sandwich toppings! Need something to bring with you to Walt Disney World? Sandwiches on deck! Need a quick, yet filling, dinner after a long, fun-filled day? Pull out the sandwich materials!

This tasty Open-Face Chicken-and-Pepper Sandwich with Grilled Romaine Wedges recipe from My Recipes is to die for!

3. Pasta is Always a Winner

The ultimate delicious comfort food. The pride of Italy. A family favorite. Pasta is always in season and always delightfully palatable! Not to mention pasta is usually exceptionally easy to make, filling, and can feed a crowd. Oh, and it heats up nicely!

Consider trading in the marinara sauce for a more summer-appropriate pesto. Try this Pasta With Arugula Pesto recipe that will have your taste buds singing your praises!

4. Two-Meal Recipes

Mexican dishes are usually delicious, simple to make, and offer loads of leftovers! All winning qualities for a vacation meal! Enchiladas are usually a hit, and this recipe from Gimme Some Oven is sure to please! Any leftover tortillas, meat, and toppings used for Enchiladas can also be repurposed for breakfast tortillas or tacos.

5. Energize With Energy Balls

One challenge while vacationing is finding healthy snacks. It’s extremely easy to munch on chips, ice cream, and all the other sweet treats. Eating sweet treats for days on end tends to make us feel sluggish and low-energy. Which is exactly why we love this recipe for healthy, crispy, no bake energy balls!

Made of super foods such as flaxseed and coconut oil, with even a few chocolate chips thrown in, these energy balls can be eaten in a few bites, satisfy a snack craving, and give you a mid-day burst of energy! You can make enough to last the entire vacation, and they stay good for two weeks in the fridge!

Each of these vacation meal ideas will help you to enjoy your vacation to the fullest, while not worrying about having to eat out for every single meal. Of course, there are so many amazing restaurants in Orlandobut you also might enjoy getting cozy in your suite dining on home-cooked food every now and again.

Book your suite at The Grove Resort & Spa in Orlando, Florida, and spend your vacation days theme parking, poolside lounging, going out to eat, and cooking in your suite!
