Healthy food options & Eco-tourism

Status: New Idea

I used the tour guides during a recent trip and was frustrated with the lack of healthy food listing in the guides. My husband and I seek out restaraunts that serve healthy fare and all of the descriptions were of greasy, fried food. There is a growing number of people like myself who seek healthier options and we found the tour guides completely useless for dinner options for us. Please include restaraunts that serve healthy food, maybe a symbol for vegetarian options, organic food served, or non-gmo. There are many restaraunts that serve food from local farmers or have gardens on their premises. I would love to see these listed in the guides. We are also about to take a cross-country camping trip and would love to have a list of farmers markets by state where we can find fresh (organic) produce. Have you considered putting together an ecotourism guide that lists destinations that are eco-friendly or maybe agritourism? Food and farm travel is one of the fastest growing segments in the travel industry. I would love to have a guide that lists farms we can visit or tour during our travels as well. Please see the attached article. My generation is seeking more meaningful travel destinations. There is more to life than Disney World and theme parks. http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/03/17/your-next-vacation-should-include-trip-farm?cmpid=foodinc...

 

We use the following websites to locate such options, but do not always have internet access. I would love to see and would really apprecate a guide that lists this information without having to go online. Please consider putting one together. 

 

Here is a website that lists healthy food options to get you started. http://www.happycow.net/
