Tips for Eating Vegetarian or Vegan as an Expat or Traveler

5 Aug

I could never give up meat, but I have vegetarian friends whom I’ve traveled with and this can prove to be a challenge when finding places to eat abroad. Here are ten tips to subtlety pass along to your vegetarian friends before traveling abroad. Or if you you’re an expat, knowing these 10 tips can help you transition your vegetarian lifestyle more easily to your new neighborhood.

One helpful tip is, “know the staples. Find out what makes up the local cuisine and if anything you don’t want to eat is commonly used (like beef fat for frying vegetables). Many places have started to substitute soy and other alternative products so feel free to ask.”
