Vegan in Europe (My New Travel Book!) - Get it on Sale! {Limited Time}

Posted by: Lindsay S. Nixon |

Category: NewsTravel

I'm SO excited about the release of my new travel book, Vegan in Europe!

Over the years I've received hundreds of emails, Facebook comments, and tweets asking how to survive Europe as a vegan -- or if it was even possible.

So over the summer, while I was living in France, I decided to write a book that contains ALL the information anyone could ever need to eat, drink, and live la dolce vida as a vegan in Europe.

Get your copy today! (You can order it today.)

This 280-page book is also a MEGA resource!

Inside you'll find:

*specific restaurant recommendations (including “locals only” restaurants you won’t find in travel books or on websites like HappyCow, as well as gluten-free and raw options)

*detailed information about what to expect food-wise in each country

*comprehensive overview of “accidentally vegan” traditional fare you should try

*lengthy suggestions for what to eat at any restaurant in any city or country

*my expert tips for what to pack for your trip and what to buy in Europe!

*MASSIVE list of local vegan brands for plant-based milks, vegan ice creams, faux meats, vegan cheeses, “accidentally vegan” snacks, and other vegan goods. It’s the most comprehensive list anywhere!

*Language tips (including key vocabulary and phrases) for every language

*cautionary warnings for the all the hidden foods you need to look out for

*cautionary warnings for the all cultural quirks you need to be aware of

*long list of international and regional chains with vegan options--plus a list of their cities and locations!

*details of what beers and wines are vegan in each country

*links to additional resources like all-vegan accommodations, vegan societies, and other useful information

By the end of this book you’ll be one well-educated traveling Herbie! (And very full, too!)

The best part? You can download Vegan in Europe to your smart phone or tablet and easily access it throughout your European adventure! That's 280 pages at your fingertips!
