...eating right away from home

Between work and play, travel is on our mind. Honestly, we have a love/hate relationship with it. We love to explore new places, but we hate compromising our health to make it happen. From gas station food-like substances to salty restaurant food to processed airplane snack packs, any given trip is loaded with opportunities to fall off the wagon. 

We believe you don't have to compromise your health to see the world. With a little forethought, it's possible to set yourself up to travel like a plant eating pro. This week we're sharing a few of our favorite travel hacks including vegan meals that can be made right in your hotel room (seriously!). We're proving that there's no excuse to venture away from your plant eating ways just because you're on the road - Kayli has literally packed whole avocados and bunches of fresh kale in her luggage in the name of plant eating!

Make it a goal to eat at least one meal per day "in". It's easiest to make this happen for breakfast, but it can also be done for lunch or dinner. See below for some ideas.

Rely on grocery stores. They give you access to fresh produce, healthy snacks, and salad bars. You're much more likely to find something plant-based and fresh in a grocery store than a restaurant or convenience store. When we travel, we always scout out nearby grocery stores to grab non-dairy milk tetra packs, fruit to snack on, and salads.

If you're road tripping, pack a small cooler. When you have all you need in the car, fast food drive-thrus and gas station munchies become unnecessary.

Your best bet (by far) is the food you bring with you. Coming prepared with healthy snacks and meals is the key to travelling well on a plant-based diet. Keep reading for ideas on what to pack!
  • Plain instant oatmeal packets or DIY oatmeal (rolled oats + dried fruit + nuts in a baggie)
  • Non-dairy milk in tetra packs (in checked bags, not carry-on!)
  • Whole grain, low sugar cereal or granola
  • Bars (we like Larabars, PRObars, 5-minute Sunflower Bars, and Dark Chocolate Fig Bars)
  • Baggies of sliced vegetables (carrots + celery are sturdiest)
  • Peanut butter sandwich
  • Dried soups (Perfect for hotel lunch or dinner! Just add hot water.)
  • Fruit (apples, oranges, bananas & dried fruit are sturdiest)
  • Nuts + trail mix
  • Popcorn
