"How to eat healthy while traveling with the Healthy Voyager"

The Healthy Voyager is created by Carolyn Scott.

Meet and Connect With The Healthy Voyager – Carolyn Scott

Carolyn Scott is about to celebrate her 10 years as a vegan as well as an entrepreneur. After college, Carolyn moved to Los Angeles from Miami in 1998. Shortly after arriving and becoming vegan, she studied holistic nutrition as well as dabbling in the culinary arts but did not pursue a career in that field. Instead in 2003, Carolyn opened Ineventions, a pr & event planning firm. Since then, she has added full film, TV and web production branch under the umbrella of her original business. With the access and addition of the new business arm, Carolyn was able to start realizing her dream of traveling and eating all over the world and so the Healthy Voyager was born in 2005.

Carolyn is an avid traveler but she found it quite difficult to find vegan friendly restaurants abroad. She tired of having to pack her own foods or eat bread, fries and junky foods when she was away. After realizing she could find and/or manipulate any menu to create a meal that satisfied her as well as her dining partners, she created the Healthy Voyager to show people that your dietary restrictions should not ruin you or your travel mates’ trip, be it business or pleasure. She knew that many people must endure the same problems no matter what their diet may be from medical or ethical reasons to just wanting to keep slim. She started her blog to document every city and place she dined as a resource for the finickiest of travelers. She also realized it was a great resource for those who were traveling with others who did not share their special needs as her posts offered suggestions to restaurants that shared options for all types of foodies ; ) As of 2006, she and her fiancé, of opposing gastronomic tastes, have traveled and dined healthily and harmoniously while documenting it all on film for the Healthy Voyager Web Series.

Look for the Healthy Voyager spin off show this spring/summer, The Healthy Voyager: Tour Bus. Carolyn will be chatting and hanging out with top veggie, health conscious and/or green artists from rock and roll to country and hip hop!

Also coming this year is the Healthy Voyager Approved guide, a directory of restaurants around the world as well as food and health products approved for and categorized by their special dietary offerings, as well as The Healthy Voyager’s first cookbook, The Healthy Voyager’s Global Kitchen and a line of grab and go foods/snacks!! - Keeping It Real Radio


The Healthy Voyager : Ardent foodies more likely to be thwarted by stringent dietary needs than by complicated financial woes will appreciate the nutritional tips and health-minded insights as reported on this healthy living lifestyle site by vegan traveler Carolyn Scott. While vegetarians need not despair - there are a good number of healthful food suggestions and brand recommendations for consumers who are simply interested in gluten-free, natural, and organic fare - carnivores will likely not find their just desserts (or meals and snacks for that matter) in The Healthy Voyager chronicles...although there are some solid recipes for organic versions of popular cocktails for naturally-inclined imbibers! It's true that Ms. Scott has a fair amount of voyaging in her future to cater to a truly global set, but she's certainly off to a very good start, providing healthy tips and nutritional guidance for domestic and semi-international travelers alike. - Trend Central

"The Last Leg of Meatless in May- What’s Next?"

As we wrap up Meatless in May at ydt, we’re excited to hear your experiences if you participated. Over 200 individuals joined our cause and together we collectively kept over 87,000 lbs of carbon emissions out of the atmosphere. Where we go from here will be varied. Many of us will continue to be “Meatless in June”, others will consider becoming flexitarians, or are excited for their first meat (hopefully organic and free range) meal after many days of going without. Regardless of the path you will chose, ydt hopes that you’ve enjoyed being a part of this movement and learned about the big effect that your diet has on our planet. While we don’t think we’ll ever see a day where everyone is a vegetarian, we do believe that there can be a day where everyone is a “compassionate carnivore” and mindful of what they eat and choose to support. And of course we’ll be here to help along the way to share what we learn and discover too.

For our last Meatless themed post, Carolyn Scott, The Healthy Voyager is here to share her thoughts on how not only being meatless-but vegan can help make a substantial impact on your healthy and fooprint.

In honor of YDT’s Meatless in May 2009, have you been inspired to green other aspects of your life? Maybe you have started recycling, using less water in the shower or garden, using energy-efficient light bulbs, bringing your own bags to the market, buying locally-grown foods or riding your bike to get around town. All these acts applied to your daily life can help a great deal, but did you know that nothing will benefit the planet nearly as much as going all the way to a vegan diet? Yeah, it helps you get healthier because vegan diets have no cholesterol and are low fat, and easily digestible, PLUS being vegan has a huge impact on your carbon footprint! If you feel you’re not ready to take the plunge just yet but want to continue diminishing your carbon footprint, adopting a vegan diet for a few days a week, or just one meal a day, you could dramatically improve your health while helping out mother earth. You may even be able to keep driving that SUV (hybrid hopefully) - it does less to the earth than the following:

* As mentioned, cutting back on animal product consumption can help combat climate change. Chris Weber, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, says that not eating red meat and dairy products is the equivalent of not driving 8,100 miles in a car that gets 25 miles to the gallon. While buying local meat may sound promising, only five percent of food-related emissions come from the actual transportation of the product.

* The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook points out that “refusing meat” is “the single most effective thing you can do to reduce your carbon footprint.” Researchers at the University of Chicago have found that going vegan is more effective in countering climate change than switching from a standard American car to a Toyota Prius. Two other great books about how food affects our bodies and our environment are Food Revolution by John Robbins and Mad Cowboy by Howard Lyman. Both authors lived and worked in the meat and dairy industry, making their information and message incredibly poignant.

Among the benefits to our health in adopting a vegan diet, the environmental benefits are just as extraordinary. The U.N. report stated that the meat industry is “one of the … most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global.”

* Almost half of the water used in the U.S. is used by the animal agriculture industry. From watering crops grown to feed farmed animals, providing drinking water for billions of animals each year, and cleaning the factory farms, transport trucks, and slaughterhouses, the farmed animal industry places a serious strain on our water supply. According Newsweek, “The water that goes into a 1,000-pound steer would float a destroyer.” It takes more than 4,000 gallons of water per day to produce a meat-based diet, but a vegan only needs 300 gallons of water a day to produce her meals.

* A vegan diet not only helps conserve water, it helps reduce water pollution. The Environmental Protection Agency has found that animal factories pollute our waterways more than all other industrial sources combined. Cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals raised for food produce approximately130 times as much excrement as the entire human population. Crappy, huh?

* Massive amounts of grains and soybeans are grown to feed farmed animals. Close to 1.4 billion people could be fed with the grain and soybeans fed to U.S. cattle alone. The Worldwatch Institute says, “[M]eat consumption is an inefficient use of grain-the grain is used more efficiently when consumed by humans. Continued growth in meat output is dependent on feeding grain to animals, creating competition for grain between affluent meat-eaters and the world’s poor.”

Carolyn Scott has found it quite difficult to find special diet-friendly restaurants across the U.S. Realizing she could find and/or manipulate any menu to create a meal that satisfied her, she created The Healthy Voyager Brand to show students that your dietary restrictions shouldn't ruin your campus eating habits. Having studied holistic nutrition and dabbled in the culinary arts, she knew she could put together a resource to help students with similar needs. Carolyn kept a log of every place she visited, filmed her adventures and the show was born! Now a full lifestyle brand, The Healthy Voyager is the authority on all things healthy and green!
