Search for local vegan groups in the area and ask them what they do. They are bound to have lots of good vegan travel strategies for you if you aren’t afraid to reach out and talk to a stranger.
To The Market – Sometimes it can be quite a process to try to eat vegan in certain locations. That is why it is always a good idea when all else fails to go to the local farmers market. A farmers market will always have a great selection of fresh fruits and vegetables to choose from. This makes it feel less like you are playing games and more like you are finding solutions to your eating needs.
Come Prepared – One of the cheapest and most convenient ways to eat vegan while you are traveling is to simply prepare your meals. Be sure to keep lots of good, portable snacks on you such as nuts, bananas, cereal, coconut yogurt, vegan protein bars. There are plenty of good options that will help you to fuel up and stay feeling healthy and satisfied. If you get desperate, there are some snack foods that are vegan that you wouldn’t think are.
