Use these apps to locate nearby restaurants and grocery stores with plant-based options, with referrals by other plant-based travelers, just like you. Just Add Water Water is life, especially when youre a road-weary traveler looking for something to eat. A bottle of water will quench your thirst, but it can also be combined with protein powder for a more complete meal. Prepare Pre-Boarding Getting on a plane? Dont have anxiety over the lack of meatless airline food. Bring some light snacks or protein-packed foods that are easy to carry like trail mix, hummus, or single-serve nut butters. You can also bring a dehydrated soup, oatmeal, or rice and ask the flight attendant for a cup of hot water for mixing. And for your in-flight meal, many airlines offer a meatless option, just make sure to preorder it beforehand. Know Your Restaurant Options When youre on the highway heading to your next holiday destination, you will get hungry. That means, if you forget to pack a lunch, youll likely be dining at the next rest stop. This isnt the worst thing in the world. Weve compiled a list of meatless and plant-based options available at the most popular national fast-food and quick-service restaurant chains. Check out our list of 14 chains offering Meatless Monday options. Pack More Snacks Than You Need Sustenance, sustenance, sustenance. When the hunger pangs hit, you need to have something in your bag, purse, coat pocket, or glove compartment. Nuts, seeds, dried fruit, veggies, or even healthy crunchies like chips or puffs will allow you to make it to your next meal without being overcome with hanger. Eat Breakfast! Is breakfast the most important meal of the day? When youre traveling a hearty helping of oatmeal, fresh fruit, granola, or cereal can set you up for eating success later in the day. Meatless breakfast options are plentiful, but if you need some inspiration, weve got them here! Explore New Cuisines Dont just stick to the standard roadside fare (although we do love a good diner). When youre traveling, whether to a different country or your cousins house, consider sitting down to an unfamiliar cuisine. Chinese, Indian, Mediterranean and other Southeast Asian countries specialize in a variety of plant-based and vegetarian dishes. Whip out your smart phone and start looking up menus. Find a Supermarket Nearby If youve got an extended stay at a hotel, its wise (and cost effective) to visit a nearby supermarket at least once. You can stock up on plant-based snacks and ready-to-eat meals. Many hotel rooms offer a microwave or a kitchenette where you can heat something up.   Interested in learning more tips and tricks to enhance your Meatless Monday experience?
