vegan travels

I am flying to Tampa tomorrow to see my family and new baby nephew. This will be the first time I will be flying and having to wait at airports as a vegan. So, knowing that airports are full of fast food chains and not so great snack options at the gift shops, I am going prepared. Initially, I didn't expect to pack so much food BUT it might snow tomorrow (definitely gonna rain), so I wanted to be prepared for any flight delays. I have my laptop with loads of good music, this wonderful book I'm reading called Lies Across America: What Our Historic Sites Get Wrong by James W. Loewen and this lovely spread of goodies including Japanese Rice Snacks, Animal Cookies, homemade cheezy crackers and a throw together mix I made out of dried cranberries, raw cashews, roasted almonds and dried coconut chunks. I am prepared in case the mood strikes me for something sweet, crunchy, salty or just in need for a little protein.

Here's hoping to no flight delays. Now I see why snow is frustrating for those who get it all the time!

I traveled for the first time as a vegan last summer. It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. But I did pack a full backpack of food! Better safe than sorry. =)

Besides, airplane food, and fast food is sketchy anyway...

Looks like a perfect little snack pack! I'm already concerned about what I'll be eating on the way to Germany; eep!

What a great collection of snacks - I really must try that chezy quacker recipe! Have fun in Tampa; I have family in that area and I must say that I'm slightly jealous of all the glorious sunshine you'll be enjoying...

Wow! What a great stash! I've never thought about taking much in the way of snacks, usually there's plenty of fruit or snacks at the airport and I don't fly transatlantic or anywhere tht takes too long anyway. That would be a GREAT option though if I were ever that organised. Yum!
