The idea of feeding your family healthy food on the road can be daunting. If your family happens to be vegan, the challenge may seem overwhelming. Relax, with a bit of planning your vegan vacation can be filled with great times, great fun, and, most importantly, great food.
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Before heading out on your family adventure, always plan ahead. Pack enough snacks and food to see your family through all meals. And unless you will have access to a refrigerator, pack items that won't spoil and, once opened, can be finished in a single meal. There is nothing worse than arriving at an airport, train station or rest stop with a family of hungry veg-heads and nothing in sight but fast food chains and mini-marts.
Research your destination before you depart. Find out if local supermarkets carry foods and brands you are familiar with and whether there are any healthy choice restaurants nearby. When you arrive your vegan brood will be ready to hit the town.
