The Vegetarian Traveler’s Survival Guide

With a little planning, vegetarians and vegans can eat well almost anywhere.

| May/June 2004


A vegetarian diet doesn't have to be boring.


Vegetarian? Use our 9 tips to eat right no matter where in the world your travels take you:

• Parlez-vous vegetarian? Before visiting foreign countries, learn key food vocabulary. Be prepared to say whether you eat pork, chicken, fish, eggs, milk or cheese.

Scrutinize before you sail. Cruise ships generally have vegetarian menus, but vegans may have rougher sailing. Research before you book.

Cook for yourself. If you’re staying a number of days, choose a hotel room with a kitchenette.

Not so veg-friendly skies. Many airlines have eliminated vegetarian meals from domestic flights. Include nonperishable snacks in your carry-on.

Healthy detours. During road trips, travel with a cooler and seek out health food stores where you can stock up.
