A MoFo Guide to Hotel Living in a Non Vegan Friendly Town

I left yesterday for a work trip. I am in a beautiful coastal town in North Carolina, but I will have to say, there isn’t much in the way of vegan friendly food. I’ve been here several times, and usually end up with Subway or something picked up in the grocery section of the local Walmart, and while that’s okay, I decided a bit of prep was in order.

I packed up one of my grocery bags with some items I know will get me through my 2 day stay.

Since I am still eating gluten-light, all of my snacks are gluten free. This way, if I’m out to lunch or dinner down here, I know that I can have a snack in my hotel room, and a big salad at a restaurant, and not feel so hungry that I dive into a loaf of bread or pile of pasta!

Combined with the hotel gym and my pre-planned healthy snacks, I can rest assured that even when on the road, life can be healthy and balanced!

I am a 45 yo busy career single mom and doctoral student attempting to find her inner athlete, be a gluten-free(ish) vegan, and find a way to balance it all without going crazy! I love to cook, read, run, box, do yoga, dance, travel, and learn as many new things as I can - which often gets me in trouble.... I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.

  1. I love knowing that other people pack their own food too! I find that figuring out the food situation is a lot more time-consuming than any other part of getting ready for a trip. Crissie, I am so glad I found your blog through Vegan Mofo and am enjoying reading your past posts. Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks! Glad I found yours too 🙂
      I don’t always come as prepared as I like…and I think I pay for it when I don’t. We’re going camping this weekend – my first time ever – and I think I have more food packed than anything else!
