Traveling as a vegetarian or vegan can be tough in rural America as it can be hard to find vegan and vegetarian friendly options. Our number one solution is to cook your own meals! We love a healthy, vibrant plant based diet, and shop weekly at the local farmers markets if possible and substitute other staples from local markets in the area. Since we live in a 26 foot travel trailer and also in our converted cargo van where space is minimal, it can be challenging at times, but at the same time we love the simplicity of it.
We try to keep it eco-friendly by avoiding the use of plastic packaging whenever possible. We bring our own reusable shopping bags and produce mesh-bags, avoid the use of aluminum foil, but if we use it we choose recycled aluminum foil. And of course using biodegradable dishwashing soap and avoiding water waste is a must. We are eating mostly vegan plant based foods which is better for the environment as well as more ethical and better for animal wellbeing. On special occasions we eat cheese, eggs, dairy products and honey, but we try to keep it at a minimum. We hope to help inspire you to make some creative but simple meals. Bon appetit!
