Some hae meat and cannae eat….and some wad eat that want it…but I don’t want meat and I cannae fucking eat….in my packed lunch I’m thankit!

Why, when there is such an amazing selection of plant based foods out there, can you not get anything when you’re trying to grab and go?? Is it so hard to imagine putting rice and avocado without a big lump of chicken on top? Or pasta with tomato and nae cheese?

It’s torture!!! Overall I’m usually pretty successful with my grab and go days, but today was dire!

Behold….Waitrose’s lunch selection….

All of that food and they can’t provide one vegan option??? Have the never heard of houmous or falafel??

Eventually, after reading the fine print of everything I found a wee packet of veggie sushi that was accidentally vegan! Woooooohooooo!!!

Vegan food is in no way hard to make.

For example…you could fire some vegan cream cheese on a bit of toast with avocado, tomato and marmite as I’ve done below. Cheap, easy and bloody tasty.

Or….a vegan burrito. Loaded with avocado, black beans and rice.

Got this from a wee place in silverburn.

And if you’ve got more time…

Orzo pasta in a butternut squash sauce with kale and onions.

I’ve also discovered some amazing vegan pate. It’s really really tasty. I’d say it’s more like the cheap meat spreads, but it’s amazing.

My point is….if manufacturers thought a bit more about ingredients, they’d be able to make easy vegan choices.

Thankfully M&S and Starbucks got it right for me this weekend. So it’s not all bad.

A Buddha bowl and juice. Plus, a bar of amazing chocolate (which wasn’t for me btw…it was for us all at home)

Starbucks got it right too!

I always make my own lunch, but this weekend was madness and I didn’t manage it.

Lesson – don’t rely on food outlets for lunch on the go, always make your own!

  1. Thought Waitrose finally introduced a vegan open flatbread (impossible to eat w/o mess), Prob not in all stores though. But yeah, when WHSmiths can do two sandwiches and even M&S finally do, it’s taken Waitrose & Sainsbury’s(!) ages. Morrisons still has none!

  2. And why, oh, why is everything always drenched in mayonnaise?!

    I am a vegetarian but don’t eat eggs (and always hated mayo, anyway). I prefer vegan options but tonnes of places don’t even have egg-free veggie options, let alone anything vegan! Sigh.
