SPRING BREAK

Break Away

SPRING BREAK- EVEN

the words conjure up

images of pure

bacchanalian hedonism.

But we’re here to show you

how to have a happy,

healthy (or at least

healthier) vegan travels this

year!

Pack your bags

If you’re flying off to Florida

or Cabo, make sure you

order your meal for the

flight beforehand (ask for

VGML – it’s airline code for

vegan vegetarian meal,

and comes without meat,

fish, egg or dairy). If your

flight doesn’t include a

meal, pack some snacks

for the plane – for example

nuts and dried fruit, carrot

sticks, or grapes (make

sure you don’t pack any

fruit that might easily get

squashed, like a banana).

Think about your drinks

It’s spring break – you’ll

probably be imbibing a

cocktail or two. But why

not make your cocktail with

fresh fruit, or alternate with

fresh-squeezed juice or a

smoothie? It’s spring and

fresh, local fruit is starting

to grace store shelves

(especially true the further

south you get) so take

advantage! For harder

drinks, check the listings on

Barnivore.com to check

whether your tipple of

choice is vegan-friendly

(beer, wine and even some

spirits may be filtered using

animal products).

Do your homework

Look up vegan-friendly

restaurants before you go.

Happycow is a fantastic

resource for finding vegan

and vegan-friendly

restaurants anywhere in

the world. Don’t forget to

add a review and update

the listing if the hours or

address has changed! If

you don’t find listings on

Happycow, look for

bloggers who live in or

have visited the area, and

don’t hesitate to get in

touch with them if you have

questions or want more

advice – most bloggers

love hearing from their

readers!
