Healthy Highways: The Traveler's Guide to Healthy Eating (Second Edition)
As someone who has always found it challenging to find healthy, organic, and vegan foods while traveling, I was thrilled to see Nikki and David Goldbeck’s book, Healthy Highways: The Travelers’ Guide to Healthy Eating
The book is easy to use, listing states by alphabetical order with plenty of maps to help you find your way. The volume has over 2,700 listings of healthy foods options for travelers who don’t want to rely on Taco Bell, McDonalds, or any other fast food chain restaurant in the USA. That said, there are over 1,000 new listings since the first edition.
The book was also created with eco-sustainable philosophy in mind. 470 pages long, it’s printed on recycled paper and with canola based ink. The introduction of the book is well organized, explaining how the authors are using the concepts “natural food stores” and “eateries.” They explain that all the eateries they selected for the book have “reasonable” options for vegetarians. They even will let travelers know which restaurants are “Certified Green.” Each food option site listed has handy symbols and descriptions that will let readers know immediately if options such as vegan, organic, bakery, take-out, are available. Also, the Goldbecks want the readers to become involved with listing healthy food options for Healthy Highways project.
Readers can go to www.healthyhighways.com to inform the authors of any new healthy places they have found. I highly recommend this guide to anyone who is sick of not knowing where they can eat healthy, while traveling in new territory.
