THE VEGAN TRAVELER!

Hey folks!

Happy Monday to you!  I hope you all had a good weekend!  As I mentioned yesterday, mine was great but went by way too quickly! I could have stood to be in Palm Springs until Wednesday like my mom and sisters, but duty calls so what can I say (insert sigh here). 

Anyhoo, while I was on the road I used a couple of my go-to guides to find out where I could get my vegan grub!  I have visited this topic on the blog before, but I feel it deserves repeating for those of you reading who may be new to veganism or this blog!  The reason I feel it's important to note is because traveling is where things can get tricky or discouraging if you're not prepared.  I always say to do your best to always plan ahead by hitting up the web in advance of your travels and see what places are close to where you will be staying.  My trip to Palm Springs was only overnight and I was fortunate to find a Trader Joe's to get food to prepare at the villa.  Since I wasn't planning on being there long enough to explore vegan or vegan friendly restaurants, I didn't dig as deep as I usually do to find some in the area.  So, I was good to go with TJ's. However, below are three go-to guides I use for more extended stays and recommend you check them out when travel calls for work or pleasure for you!

1) HappyCow :  HappyCow started in 1999 to help travelers and people everywhere find vegetarian, vegan, and healthy food choices. Today it is powered by members from around the world who are passionate about the vegetarian and vegan lifestyle. http://www.happycow.net/

2) VeganSteven:  If you have an iPhone, I find this to be a pretty reliable app for finding vegan hot spots based on your location: http://itunes.apple.com/app/vegansteven-be-healthy-eat/id316799910?mt=8

3) More Than Salad: I discovered More Than Salad at Vida Vegan Con and mentioned Dan the founder in my exhibitor round-up post from the conference. I think this is another fab site to use for tips on where to go because of its interactive nature.  You can create your own account for free and post about your favorite and suggested choices on where to get great vegan food!http://www.morethansalad.com/about.php

So, these are just a few that I think are great, but I'm sure there are tons more out there.  If any of you reading know of any other good ones, please share in the comments!  Happy vegan traveling!
