I will be away for the weekend (here is your heads up ) and wanted to know how you deal with travel and being veg. I know on our car ride (7-8 hours) there will be very little for me to eat, none of the Subways in the south that I have been to have the veggie burgers, so it is a salad sandwich at best. LOL. Once I found a Chipotle, but it was just mediocre. Once we are in Raleigh, there are some good options and we will be carb loading with pasta tonight anyways for tomorrow's race. I have had trouble traveling to places like New Orleans where finding non-fish veg food was very difficult. We have found some gems though. We discovered an incredible veg friendly cafe in Victor/Drigg, ID several years ago. One of the best meals I had ever had. I also had a great meal at the base of Mount Rushmore! LOL.
I just traveled through New Orleans over christmas. They have a waffle house on every street corner so you can always do the breakfast for lunch thing. I love subways veggie delights (no fake meat). Those are my favorites! I never have trouble finding something to eat but if you are preping for one of your crazy long races I can see that finding more than a veggie delight would be important since you probably need to fill up.
When I was in New Orleans, it was Mardi Gras and it was very hard to get around the city with the road closures for the parades and some restaurants that would normally have a veg option, did not due to limited menus for Mardi Gras. Disney world (11 years ago?) was another place i had a very hard time, but heard that has changed since then.
It can be hard but fortunately being veg is much more common than it used to be so its getting easier. I like Olive Garden for a easy choice. Thai restaurants seem to have good options, I would just do my research first on what they cook with. Sometimes just finding a Whole Foods or Trader Joes works too.
