When you choose to eat vegan, you’re doing a whole lot of good across the board. Unfortunately, we can run into some serious hunger pangs when we are out and about. And while the best option is to always have a piece of fruit or veg with you on the go, it doesn’t always happen that way.
Here’s the List!
1.) Crackers + Hummus! The nice thing about this easy snack is, you can vary what kind of crackers you take with you (Mary’s Gone Crackers are my fave, but unfortunately they are way too expensive on this side of the world.) You can take seed crackers on Monday, herb flavoured ones on Thursday & even homemade curry crackers on Saturday. The same with hummus! While I always recommend making your own, there are so many options on the market. Spinach, pesto, chilli, and and bell pepper hummus are also great buyable choices.
2.) Roasted Chickpeas. Super easy snack to make in the morning while you’re having some brekkie. This is also a snack my daughter is obsessed with, her favourite is with curry powder. Here’s the recipe.
3.) Ants On A Log. This is a super quick snack to pack up. Grab some celery, your favourite peanut butter (preferably without sugar) and raisins! If you’re not a raisin fan, give dried cranberries a go.
4.) Shakes. When I made the switch over to vegan, the first thing I did was go out and buy a tub of meal replacement shake from a local company. I don’t drink it every day, but it truly is a perfect solution when Lily is running out the door and I haven’t eaten. I just throw the powder + nut milk in the shaker, and go. If I’ve got a minute more, I blend a banana in with some chia seeds and my stomach is happy. Check out some local shops, or even Target and see if you can find a shake that you like. Just please- no Herbalife.
5.) Cashews & Dried Fruit. Or almonds, whatever floats your boat. Grab a gallon sized bag & mix up some nuts and dried fruit (goji berries if you’re fancy, cranberries, dried blueberries, banana chips, etc). Throw it in the cupboard and when you’re on the way out, grab a handful (or five) and put it into a smaller container of choice.
