Vegan on the road article?

Hi everybody, I'm looking for a fellow vegan or vegans to write a short (could be very very short!) article style thing on vegan travel food. Safe dishes you can order in mainstream restaurants, stuff to pack, tips, anything. Road trips/biking/trains/planes/how-to/recipes. I am putting together a zine with the theme of "transportation" and I want to get some vegan perspective in there, too. I am already going to do a bit on the Vegan Bus as well.

Anyone interested, please comment here or e-mail leannleake@gmail.com
All contributors get two copies of the zine. If you made a post on this topic previously a reprint would be cool also.

Help! Gluten free, soy free, dairy free breakfast...


I have company coming over for breakfast.  I just ran out to the store to pick up a few things and forgot they were closing early.  One of the kids coming over can't have gluten, dairy or soy.  I was planning on picking up a mix and making him banana bread or something.  Everyone else is having pancakes, fresh berries and whipped cream.  I don't want him to feel left out, but I am so stuck.  I only have normal ingredients in my pantry.  I could make him scrambled eggs and potatoes, but I really want to make him something fun.  Help! 

Campfire corn

It's really easy to cook corn over a campfire, if you have a fire pit with metal grating. Wait until the flames aren't quite reaching the grating, put corn (with husk still on) on grating, turn a few times as the husks start to scorch. The corn inside is cooked and super yummy even without margarine or salt.
