If you're in an unfamiliar area where you don't know what's available at any of the local restaurants, or if you're in a hurry and need to order quickly, Subway could turn out to be a vegan's best friend.  There may not be a drive-through, but service is quick and you can order a Veggie Delite sandwich the way you want it (no cheese and no mayo).

Subway has an online menu with nutritional information so it's easy to find out which breads are vegan.  As it turns out, there are several breads listed that don't contain eggs or dairy products:  Hearty Italian, Italian (White), Roasted Garlic, Sourdough, and 9-Grain Wheat.  You can choose from among numerous vegetables for your sandwich, such as lettuce, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, jalapeno peppers, banana peppers, pickles, and olives.  I always have them add avocado to mine, but that costs extra.  Vegan dressings for your sandwich include yellow or deli brown mustard, and oil and vinegar.  Sandwiches come in lengths of either six inches or foot-long.

Subway has 35,415 restaurants in 98 countries, so wherever you're traveling, you've got a good shot at finding one.  More information about Subway's locations, hours, and menu is available at www.subway.com.
