Nothing's more frustrating for the road-tripping vegetarian than to pull up to a truck stop and order your eighth grilled cheese sandwich in three days. To save you from this greasy fate, The Vegetarian Resource Group and Avery Publishing teamed up to produce the Vegetarian Journal's Guide to Natural Foods Restaurants in the U.S. and Canada ($12.95). Whether craving couscous in Connecticut or burritos in British Columbia, this book is sure to lead you in the right direction. It also offers tips on vegetarian inns, spas, camps and agencies.

And if your travels take you out of the country, there's no reason to resort to desperate hand gestures with uncomprehending waiters and maitre d's. Speaking Vegetarian by Bryan Geon is a comprehensive guide to ordering meatless meals in 197 countries ($14.95, Pilot Books). Each nation's section includes a brief discussion of the vegetarian entrees usually available, followed by translations and phonetic pronunciations of the phrases most likely to be appetite-savers. So when offered a platter of piaju in Bangladesh, don't forget to say "Dhonnobad" (thank you).
