if you stop at Taco Bell (aka Toxic Hell) you can get a bean burrito, no cheese. THe guacamole does have sour cream in it, unfortunately. Salads are usually pretty safe but some have cheese already on them - you have to ask. Salad bars are the best, you can see what you're getting, and the one with the lunch buffet at Pizza Hut is not too bad. If anyone in your caravan can be persuaded that a Chinese buffet is not too much in terms of time, that is a good bet.

Pack your daypack well with fruit, Clif bars, trail mix, sandwiches that travel well (I love Tofurky for the first day but after that it needs refrigeration; peanut butter is kind of the staple on the road). If you are staying at night anywhere with a frig and a microwave, it's possible to get microwave meals, including some that don't need a freezer - I've had some of the vegan asian noodle meals that come in a carton, and while they are not great nutritionally, they at least feel like you've had a meal. Some canned soups are an option. Otherwise, resign yourself to living mainly on bars and trail mix for a couple weeks. Are the decision-makers on this trip remotely sympathetic to your dietary needs?
