When you’re eating plant-based, finding a meal on the high street, train station or on your lunch break is not always easy. So we’ve come up with some of the best options out there for grab and go foods for vegans.
King of the lunches, Subway have so many variations for meat-eaters. But for vegans and vegetarians, the options have been lacklustre for a while. However, this year they introduced the Meatless Meatball Marinara. So now the options are meatballs, veggie delight or veggie pattie! Pair that with some crisps, soup, and a drink – a perfect on the go lunch. All of the toppings can be paired with wraps and salad too, so if you’re trying to avoid the bread, they’ve got you covered.
If you fancy a Starbies drink with your vegan on the go food, you need not worry! You have the choice of the Vegetable and Lentil protein box, Chickpea and Avocado box, Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwich, Spinach and Pea Falafel wrap, and oatmeal!
Pret A Manger
Fancy some fancy feeling vegan food? Pret A Manger has a whole range of Veggie Pret food. Whether you fancy the Vegan Chef’s Italian Salad Bowl, Breakfast Eggless Mayo and Tomato sandwich, Vegan Croissant and even a Vegan Breakfast Baguette. Lots of choices to pair with their rich coffees.
