Today's Vegan Mofo prompt:
What would you bring on a vegan road trip?
I have lots of experience being on a vegan on a road trip, so I could go on forever about all the right things to bring. However, I'll try to keep this concise!
First of all, SNACKS are the most important thing to bring. If you are going somewhere that has any sort of ethnic cuisine (examples include Mexican or Thai restaurants), you should be able to eat vegan meals by playing around with the menu. However, when you're between towns or going camping, snacks are going to sustain you for the long-haul. In fact, if you just packed snacks for your entire vacation, I'm sure you'd be just fine (you might miss warm food, but at least you'd be nourished!).
Here are my top snacks for road trips:
-dang toasted coconut chips
-greens and vegetables that can be made into salad-on-the-go
-dried fruit + nut bars
-granola (oh, hell yes! this is something that accompanies D and me no matter how long the trip is [or isn't])
-nut butter (you can buy them in cute little one-use packs which, although bad for the environment, are fantastic for road trips) and a loaf of bread
-chips (tortilla, potato, veggie, kale, the list is endless)
If you have access to a cooler, bring already-prepared foods, such as:
-sandwiches (these probably won't last you past the first day, but that should get you to your first town, at least!)
