I've tried most with some success, though 10 days seems to be the outer limit on most produce and fresh fruit in the tropics. We tried taking several varieties of avocado from Hawaii to Tahiti for friends to grow there, but they just couldn't handle the 31 days at sea.

Re: natural vegan, organic, veganic dude for similiar female sailor

Been a vegetarian since I was 17. I lived at times mostly on rice and beans, with garden weeds and greens as a salad on the side. If you can cook on a passage, a small pressure cooker filled with pre-soaked rice and beans will keep you fed and happy at minimum cost. There is so much variety of vegetarian products out there that will store on a boat for at least a year. Easy-peasy.

Have never tried this on the boat and maybe it wouldnt work (I will try it though), one way to store veggies (at least on land) for months is burying them in a box with sand. I wonder if that would work on a boat. If the sand gets moist, that will not work.

Make sure to leave the cat at home.

Re: natural vegan, organic, veganic dude for similiar female sailor

Dehydrated, vacuum packed, fresh fruit and veg are a great idea, even for an omnivore. I do like the organic trend, where it actually matters anyway. Some things do, some things don't. I think I'll call myself and omnivoranic, with slight processed tendencies. You know they make organic cheese doodles.

As an aside, I have a friend who is vegetarian and has, hands down, one of the worst diets I can imagine. Loaded with processed foods, imitation meat substitutes, sodium, sugars, etc. Obviously, not required to be vegetarian, but rather common.

Re: natural vegan, organic, veganic dude for similiar female sailor

I'm late to the party!

OP if you are still out there, keep looking! Veganism, as you know, is growing like mad.

I'm vegan and hoping to meet a vegan sailing mate of my own. I'd be glad to teach you sailing in exchange for your work in the galley!

Fair winds.....

Re: natural vegan, organic, veganic dude for similiar female sailor

Walking through my neighborhood supermarket, I saw a sign "vegan bouillon". This is a neighborhood supermarket , not a Whole Foods, that sells lots of unhealthy products loaded with ingredients such as corn syrup, salt, animal fats and many additives I don't know how to pronounce, so I was skeptical.

Looked at the ingredients list, nothing weird, maybe a bit high on sodium, USDA Organic, certified vegan by vegan.org whoever they are. OK I will give it a try.

I made lentil soup with carrots, onions, celery, brown lentils and a stock made with the bouillion. I was tempted to add some herbs and spices, but this was a test of the bouillon so nothing added, even salt and pepper.

This was an excellent lentil soup, maybe to much sodium, so next time same ingredients but half the bouillon than directions on the container. It was still a rich flavorful stock but closer to my preference for sodium.
