5 Tips for Travelling Vegan

Whether you are a vegan for ethical, environmental, health reasons or all of the above, you have chosen a diet that is growing rapidly in popularity, but can still be challenging at times, especially when you are in a new city or a country that is unfamiliar to you. We’ve composed a list to make it easier on you so you can focus more on your adventure, and worry less about where and how you can enjoy a meal.

1. BYO TRAVEL FOOD

     Pack your own lunch and snacks for the long flights. Even if you were ahead of the game and ordered a special vegan meal when you booked, there’s always a chance that you won’t get a vegan option due to catering issues or technical difficulties. Nutrition is important especially when you’re traveling, so pack something nutritious that will keep you in tip top health! You don’t want to end up on a long haul flight with nothing but peanuts and pretzels to tie you over. Additionally, it’s always smart to have a few nutrition or protein bars in your back pocket, just incase you ever find yourself in a bind, whether you are in or out of the airport when hunger hits. Chia seeds are another light weight, highly nutritious and filling food you can pack with you to add to water and other drinks. Before packing chia seeds, however, be sure that having them with you won’t cause issues with customs at your destination.


2. COMO SE DICE “VEGAN”?

When going to a country that speaks a different language, learn how to say “vegan” and better yet – how to explain what vegan means in their language. Veganism is growing exponentially, but there’s still many people and places that it hasn’t reached yet. If you learn how to explain that you want your food with no milk, cheese, cream, butter, eggs, meat or seafood, you’ll make things much easier on yourself. Download the Google Translate app to your phone and you can save an entire language to your device so that you can use it even without WiFi or data.

3. MAP YOUR MEALS

Google Maps and Apple Maps will pull up vegan spots if you type “vegan” into the search bar, but happycow.net and TripAdvisor.com will help you find the best of the best. You can use the map setting to find ones close to you and then research them via one or both of the previously mentioned websites to see what other vegans and vegetarians have to say about the restaurants.

4. TRAVEL BY DIET

A sure way to have a vacation full of tasty vegan food is to plan a trip to one of the vegan capitals of the world! According to Happy Cow, the top 10 vegan cities in the world include Berlin, Los Angeles, Warsaw, Taipei, New York City, Singapore, London, Tel Aviv, Portland (Oregon), and San Francisco and its surrounding Bay Area. When visiting one of these super vegan-friendly cities you are guaranteed to not end up eating bland side salads and french fries for every meal.

5. TELL YOUR TASTY TALES

Help other vegans! When you find a place you love be sure to share it on social media if possible, and write the restaurant a review on HappyCow.net, TripAdvisor.com, Yelp.com, and or FourSquare.com (or their respective apps), so that other plant-based globe trotters can find and enjoy them too!
