Vegan Eating on Vacation!!!

on May 23, 2012

It’s been a long time since I last wrote…Bad me ūüė¶ but I’ve been super busy. I know no excuse not to write! I will do better.

Anyways we just got back from vacation and I thought this would be a perfect time to talk about traveling and eating vegan.
  1. Of course you could stop at restaurants and ask the chef to make you something special. Most cases they will if they have food you can eat but remember they are making you something special so they may charge a higher price then you want or expect to pay.
  2. Stay at hotels that have a full kitchen. You can bring your own food or stop at a grocery store and pick up some food to cook once you get to where your going.
  3. If you can’t find a full kitchen and your up to camping this is a great way too. All you need to bring is plates, cups, silverware and a skillet.We got a skillet for about $30 and you can cook anything in it. We have done pasta, breakfast scramble, vegan sausage, pancakes, grilled vegan cheese, dinners and even fried tater tots and french fries. (You can also use your skillet at home to cook with. It’s super easy, cooks multiple meals in the same pan, cleans easy and is just AWESOME). Also, TVP is a good thing to bring with you. All you do it add water and cook and there’s your meat like item. But remember this way food will only last a few days in a cooler so your best bet it to shop for only a few days at a time so your food doesn’t spoil (Expect TVP is dried so it will last as long as you need). We have even brought a mini fridge camping before. What can I say we camp in style.
  4. Another options is getting a hotel with a microwave (and fridge if you can). I know microwave aren’t the best but when you’re traveling it’s hard to eat healthy all the time. You can just get pre-package¬†microwaveable¬†dinners, soups, homemade foods you made before you left. Any stuff that is easy and quick to heat up. Also most hotels have a coffee maker so you can bring pre-packages foods that just need water…so you brew the water in your coffee pot and there you go…instant food.
Now that’s all great options for when you’re at your hotel but says you’re at an amusement park…how do you eat there???
  1. Of course you could still use option # 1 from above and have them make you something special.
  2. You can also check to see what the places allows you to bring in when you have a special diet. I know that Disney World and Universal studio allow a soft sided cooler with food that doesn’t need to be heated up.
  3. If your allow to leave and return to the park you could also go back to your hotel, or keep a cooler in your vehicle so when you get hungry just go back to your vehicle eat and return to the park.
So all that might be great ideas but if you can’t think of anything to bring in the park with you then that’s no good so here’s some ideas for you that we do.
