Becoming a Vegan
I've been a vegetarian for about 15 years (since I was 12 years old), and vegan for a little over 4 years now, and I am SUUUUPER passionate about it! I hear a lot of people say that they have a hard time eating out, but I don't find it all that difficult. Sure, some places have more options than others, but I am very rarely stuck with a side salad and nothing else. The internet is your best friend! Most major chain restaurants will have nutritional/ingredient information online, which is great when you want to plan ahead. Don't ever be afraid to ask tons of questions in a restaurant! The staff is required to know what goes into each dish because of food allergies. If you ask you waiter/waitress and they don't seem sure about what's in something, ask them politely if they can check with the chef. It's kind of a cheap trick, but if I feel like the restaurant isn't taking my questions seriously, I will absolutely tell a little white lie and say that I need to know because I have severe food allergies to milk and eggs (finding out if something is vegetarian is usually much more obvious than locating hidden butter or cheese). I try not to do this too often, but when you say 'allergy', they hear 'law suit' and are MUCH more careful about how accurate the information they are giving you is! haha

Some things to watch out for that you might not think of are:
- seemingly vegetable soups that are made with chicken/beef stock or cream
- fish sauce, bonito, and other hidden seafood elements in asian food (there's a thai restaurant near here that refuses to make their vegetable pad thai without fish sauce. so sad!)
- honey and milk in bread! this one drives me a little nuts. lol
- worcestershire sauce! it's usually made with anchovies. shows up in caesar dressing a lot.
- many soy cheeses are NOT vegan. they will be lactose free, but still contain casein, which is a milk protein.
- gelatin! in marshmallows, jello (of course), and lots of candy

If you have questions or need help or inspiration, I'd love to help in any way I can! kr.usilton@gmail.com

Best of luck!!! ^__^

Eating on the go...
Since you were curious about Wawa specifically, they have a meal builder on their website. I know a small minestrone soup is only 90 calories. The MD crab soup (small) is only 70 calories and .5g fat. You can customize all the sandwiches and see how each ingredient effects the final nutritional info.

Oh, for for the non-local crowd, Wawa is a convenience store/gas station chain in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia. It was started in Wawa, PA, and apparently "wawa" is a native american (I have no idea what tribe) word for the Canadian goose. The more you know! haha
