Raw Vegan Travel Meals
1. Peanut Butter and Jam
That’s right, let’s get back to the classics, and one of our all-time favorites!! Find yourself some hardy wheat bread, and a jar of nut butter and your favorite jam. You can pack sandwiches for hikes, long days out exploring, or a quick snack before bed!
2. Refreshing Bean Salad
You can find canned beans in almost every country! You can create a beautiful protein-packed bean salad by mixing together a couple types of beans, raw and chopped onion, tomato, cilantro, a drizzle of olive oil, and a squeeze of lemon with salt and pepper! Yum!! Add in some corn chips or corn tortillas if you can find some for a quick burrito or nacho bowl.
3. Hearty Salad
A great vegan option when you can’t cook! And it doesn’t have to be boring. Load on local greens, peppers, chickpeas, fruits, nuts, seeds, and more!! Make it colorful and delicious!
Easy Vegan Snacks On-The-Go
1. Dates with Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate
Dates are pretty universal and can be found in most places, which is great news for vegan travelers! Stuff some peanut butter and dark chocolate in a split date and enjoy!! This snack will keep your rumbling tummy full for at least a couple hours!
2. Veggies with Hummus
Indulge in some delicious hummus when you can find it!! Cut up some carrots, cucumbers, and celery and get dippin’!
