Vegan in the Seychelles!
At the moment I'm looking into how on earth I'm going to survive as a vegan on a tiny island in the Seychelles for a month and a half this winter. I'm going over to do some conservation work with turtles, and although this is amazing work experience for zoologist me, I'm as usual worried I'm going to starve to death!
Situation currently is that there is no cooking facilities, only a canteen which doesn't do a vegetarian option, but does tend to serve a grain of some kind with each meal. My project manager, Dane, has asked around and has assured me the kitchen will be happy to help me get my hands on some staple ingredients, but some usual stuff is hard to get hold of, such as potatoes and onions. Tropical fruit is plentiful of course. He's also looking into getting me a hot-plate or microwave, and in our digs there is a kitchenette, but as far as I gather this is just a sink and fridge currently.
If Dane isn't successful in getting a hotplate in I was thinking about buying one of these off Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Designer-Habita
I'm also going to take a ton of staple foods with me, and so far I was thinking:
Powdered soy milk
Powdered veggie burger/falafel mix
So my questions are..
Does anyone have any suggestions for what else I should take?
Can someone suggest a powdered soymilk brand that doesn't taste absolutely foul?
Any cheap places to buy food bars in bulk? (trek, clif, nakd etc.)
Cheers! x x o
