I’m not the biggest fan of road trips. I don’t like being in the car for hours and I don’t like sitting still. Unless I’m the driver, I usually sleep because the car puts me to sleep. I sometimes get carsick and sleeping helps me remedy that. And if I’m in the backseat, I have to wear Sea Bands or I’m likely to get nauseated. A trip of 3 to 3.5 hours is my happy limit and even then I get antsy. I’m pretty sure I was an excessive “are we there yet?” kid. What is that you say- you want to stop? Don’t even think about stopping often because that only prolongs the time you will reach the destination. I stop only when my bladder is about to explode (unless the baby needs me to stop, then I will).
For this post, I am imagining a road trip. Maybe one where I’m in a big van with awesome gas mileage comfy seats, good music, great company and delicious vegan snacks. Oh! And on this road trip, we pass by a ton of vegan restaurants with extensive gluten free options. In the south that includes decadent biscuits and gravy! I also envision northern pizza places with homemade gluten free dough and amazing vegan cheeses and endless toppings. Vegan mac n cheese? Yes, please! Maybe this road trip isn’t so bad after all.
My packed snacks are sure to include Sam’s Harvest Jerky by Butler Foods. I recently purchased this jerky online and loved it from first bite. It has a chewy deliciousness that makes it hard to put the package down. I had to control myself so I didn’t eat the whole package in one sitting. This product is made from Soy Curls and the pieces are a generous size. I didn’t find that this jerky was too salty, which is a huge plus for me. I don’t like things overly salty. My only complaint is that I have to buy it online and can’t find it in stores locally. I’d love to be able to buy it more often.
Happy Vegan road-tripping and happy MoFo’ing!
