Just got back from a road trip to Maine with my excellent bf, who supported my eating vegan on the road!!<br><br>
I found most Maine grocers to have excellent health food/organics ssections, so all along the way from the Canada border to New Hampshire I was snacking in the car on fresh organic bread, organic olive hummus & either alfalafa/clover or brocolli sprours, plus organic juice & these huge, 20 g protein Clif "Builder Bars".<br><br>
I read an article while I was down there about low mood problems being related to low dietary cholesterol intake, so I allowed myself 2 doughnuts & a chocolate bar that had dairy/egg traces in them.<br><br>
I found Portland was best for vegans- a great restaurant downtown called O'Natural in a renovated old bank, a few hfs inc. a huge Wild Oats. Bangor's Little Lads vegan buffet had gone under <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> , but they still had a cafe in Portland plus a bakery that supplied other sthops with vegan bakery goods.<br><br>
Great hfs were everywhere- I loved one in Augusta where I got Spiru-tein (unavailable in my native Canada) at a great price.<br><br>
And I also loved eatinf Primal Strips all along the way.<br><br>
I hope Canada gets this adept at feeding veg*ns in ahealthy way when we are travelling within our own country SOON!!

Glad to hear you had a good time. Maine is awesome! They're pretty progressive, along the coast, at least.

Agreed. Glad you liked my birth state!!! ;-) I grew up there and its pretty progressive in many areas..... but umm..... go inland and you'll find it harder to find anything to eat.<br><br><br><br>
I wonder what it is about coastlines that makes cities liberal, LOL.

You usually find a lot of mixed cultures (co-cultures) in coastal regions. This is usually because of people coming into a country and not venturing far from the shore. I wish I lived in a coastal city. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> Although Akron/Cleveland aren't so bad.
