Whether you take your road trips in the spring, summer, fall or winter, it is good to be prepared – vegan style! Family road trip necessities are different from the needs of a single traveler. Regardless of your rolling style, here are some vegan vacation tips that will help you be ready for your adventures on the road.
Pack Your Non-Perishables
When you are packing up for a long road trip, make sure you include plenty of dry vegan foods. Good non-perishable options are raisins, cashews, tortillas, almonds, pretzels, a variety of crackers, banana chips and an assortment of dehydrated fruit and/or vegetables. You can store your items in your favorite recyclable lunch bags, trays or containers.
Get the Cooler Ready
Do not forget to leave space for carrying along additional food items and staying healthy at the same time. Road trip coolers can easily fit in your trunk or back seat – depending on the number of travelers. Some excellent items to pack for your trip are refrigerated condiments, sandwiches and applesauce. You can also pack up rinsed and cut apples, celery, carrots, broccoli and other munchable veggies.
Plan Ahead for Refills
Go ahead and plan your pit stops along the way. Make note of grocery stores or restaurants that provide vegan food options so that you can stop and soak up the opportunity. If you plan ahead, you will have a delicious vegan bounty whenever you need it. Enjoy your trip!
