I got such great responses to my last post on this subject, that I just HAD to include them in a post all their own!
I’ve previously mentioned that “Fast Food in America is pretty heavy on the meat and dairy, so what is there to do for a vegan diet? There is actually a surprising amount of food you can find at popular fast food chains and sometimes those are your only options when you are on the road traveling to WDW.”
My last post left out a couple restaurants I didn’t realize had such great options, so here they are, thanks to Terry Garvey and Teresa!
Red Robin (suggestion from Terry)
- Original Vegan Boca Burgers with veggie toppings
- Whole Grain bun or Yellow Seeded bun
- black beans and rice
- Steak Fries
- Salad with all veggies and Natural Toasted Sesame Dressing
- Red Robinetti Spaghetti, if ordered with NO cheese
- Red’s Rice bowl, ask for NO chicken, please!
and from Teresa:
“We drive from Canada to WDW, and what we usually do is stop at a grocery store rather than a fast food place. Many of them now have salad bars with toppings such as chickpeas that will give us a healthy meal. Some will sell you cooked foods like falafel, french fries, or grilled vegetable sandwiches. We might also buy hummus and some multi-grain crackers, fruit, and easy snacking foods like cherry tomatoes,baby carrots, etc. It’s usually cheaper than eating in a restaurant, we all enjoy walking around and getting a chance to stretch our legs, too.”
I love getting ideas from readers, so keep ’em coming! Thanks again!
Disclaimer: This blog post, and all past and future Fish Are Friends, Not Food blog posts, are written with my most recent knowledge of the food in WDW parks. Please note that things are constantly changing, so this information might not always be up to date. Also note that I do not take into consideration refined sugar, cross contamination, or impure food items. With that said, always ask a chef before ordering if you are unsure about something, because the recipe may have changed or you may have a different way of defining your vegan lifestyle.
