Vegan travel Hacks
When it comes to travelling as a vegan there are a number of things you need to think about and plan for. As with any kind of travel it really is a good idea to be well prepared. I do hope the vegan travel hacks help you have an amazing trip filled with amazing things to eat!
Make sure you order your airline food in advance
Obvious but important to make your dietary requirements known in advance.
Consider travelling somewhere vegan-friendly
India is a wonderful place to explore as a Vegan as is California – some places will be easier than others to eat well as a Vegan. But don’t despair if the place you are going to is traditionally all about fish or steak! with a bit of research pretty much any place you travel will have something you can eat!
Make sure you get what you need
Do take some vitamins with you – it may be really tricky to get all you need form your food but you want to stay well!
Pack some snacks for your journey
Whilst vegan foods are stocked much more widely than they used to be it can still be tricky to get vegan snacks en route so do pack some snacks for your trip. You never know what delays you might face and having your own snacks could make all the difference. Stash a few packs of Trek or Deliciously Ella bars in your bag for when there are no suitable snacks or meals available. styleBrief.co.uk
Do your research on the local restaurants
Wherever you are travelling to is well worth researching in advance the restuatnts and shops in the local vicinity. Make some calls or fire off some emails and get yourself organised. Eating lovely food is a key part of a holiday and you do not want to have to leave it to chance. Don’t forget to ask in worldwide vegan groups for recommendations as locals often know the lesser known places! evans-crittens.com
Use a good Vegan travel app
Download the vegan app ‘Happy Cow’ it lists vegan-friendly restaurants in countries all over the world – so handy! amytreasure.com
Spice it up
Take some ready mixed up spice blends or rubs that you know you like, just in case the food your source is bland and needs some love & pizazz! Readyfreddiego.com
Learn the Vegan Lingo
Make sure you can translate the ingredients if you are in another country too – perhaps use the Google translate app with the camera for an instant translation! allsheloves.co.uk
Consider self- catering
Cooking for yourself may not be everyone’s cup of tea when you are on holiday but it can really take away the hassle of where you eat. It may be a great time to try some new recipes. Hop over to Thinly Spread for some great Vegan inspiration.
