    In January, I’ll be going on a book tour with my mom to Maine.
    We’ll be gone for about ten days, possibly a few more.
    I’ve never been on a road trip while vegan.
    We wont be eating at restaurants much, if at all.
    We’ll be on the road for a good portion of the time, and when we do stay somewhere, they’ll be motels (presumably without kitchenettes.)
    Any tips or ideas for what kinds of foods we should take along with us, or can get from grocery stores without having to cook?
    Needs to be relatively inexpensive.
    Oh how I wish I could load up on soy-jerky -.-
    The only things that are coming to mind are raw foods (fruit, veg, nuts, etc.) But that can get quite pricey for the both of us… especially in Maine in the middle of winter lol.

    I take a mini travel kettle and packets of noodles, couscous etc. with me on similar sorts of trips.

    Have fun!

    we always make trail mixes for driving, and do baking before hand (Like making your own vegan goldfish crackers). Most chain restaurants have a menu online and you can check through there.

    Hey @Styna, I suggest that you pack carrots and hummus or pretzels and peanut butter! If you are bringing a cooler, you could try bringing some soy or almond milk, chip and bean dip, hummus and fruit. You could also try making a salad in a jar! Just put your fav dressing in the bottom of a jar and pile in your favorite veggies and shake it up before eating. You can buy some (accidentally) vegan snacks relatively cheap at most dollar stores, like Fruit by the Foot snacks, Lays, rice cakes, crackers (Triscuit and Town House brands). Also don’t forget plenty of water or other vegan beverages. Hope this was helpful :) have fun!
