One of the most important things I have realized since becoming vegan is "Always Be Prepared". Especially when traveling. I don't travel by car often but when I do I make sure that I have enough vegan food and snacks packed so that I don't get frustrated and too hungry. Unfortunately we live in a society that hasn't 100% embraced the vegan lifestyle and most restaurants do not have vegan options. Whenever traveling to other cities I do research to find what restaurants have vegan options on their menu. Two of my favorite Iphone apps for that is "VeganSteven" and "AroundMe".
When traveling by car I make sure that my cooler is packed with enough food and goodies to get me through the trip.
Now, what do I put in this cooler you ask??? Well, let me tell you...or should I say show you.
34 oz thermos filled with green smoothie or green juices. Raw Food Rehab Thermos
Kale salad with Tahini dressing. The lid on this jar is perfect for pouring salad dressings. Here's a closer look.
More goodies in the cooler...
These assorted nut butters can be found at Whole Foods, Roots Market and Moms Organic Market locally.
I've tried to duplicate these delicious crackers unsuccessfully. They are my absolute favorite raw snack cracker.
If you haven't tried these Larabars yet, please do. They are the perfect blend of salty and sweet.
Coconut water always makes the trip;)
Another great idea that I wish I had come up with. Travel top for your mason jars.
Assorted fruits...to spread the nut butters on of course.
This is not my photo but I think the idea is genius. Salads in a jar!
I hope the few ideas that I've shared come in handy during your Summer travels...and remember to...
Make It With Love
