Vegan on the interstate

For just over a year, I’ve been eating, while not strictly vegan, especially since honey’s considered not-vegan, at least mostly vegan. Overall, it hasn’t been that difficult, definitely not as hard as when our younger daughter was eating gluten-free. But to eat vegan or even vegetarian while on the road is very difficult unless you bring your own food. It’s even hard to eat healthily or to find any vegetables other than in a salad but vegan/vegetarian is almost impossible. Plaza eating facilities tend not to offer veggies or even much fruit, so I pack my own food, either purchased or from home.

For “fast food”, sometimes I stop in downtown Cleveland at Aladdin’s Middle East bakery for some of their amazing bean salad, steadfastly avoiding the gyro sandwiches. Subway’s veggie patty is pretty good, even cold and I have them pile on lots of veggies. Today, we had a couple of Trader Joe’s Super Spinach salads and for snacking, I like ABC Trek mix, also from TJ’s, a tasty, healthy mixture of raw almonds and dried fruit. With tea brewed before leaving and some dark chocolate, I’m all set for a healthy eating experience.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
