    I am loving your podcasts. They have provided great vegan travel resources. Thank you for the great show notes! For travel good to go meals (https://goodto-go.com/) have some great vegan dehydrated options. My favorite is the Mushroom Risotto. I pack a few incase I end up somewhere with few vegan options. They would be great on a long train ride! Thanks again for providing these wonderful podcasts.
