By now you probably have a steady rotation of lunches you bring to work that align with your vegan meal plan. Curried Chickpea Salad, Udon Miso Noodle Soup, and Kale Avocado Wraps are all tasty mid-day meals that fill you up without weighing you down.
Snacks, on the other hand, are a totally different ball game. We’ve all been in a position where we’re stressed and hungry and are tempted to make a mad dash to the vending machine. This may have been a decent strategy before you switched to a vegan meal plan, but now your options are pretty much limited to Oreos (which are surprisingly vegan) and maybe a handful of other processed foods that won’t do anything to curb your hunger pains.
So, what’s a vegan with the munchies to do? Keep some of these vegan snacks stashed in your desk at work for a guilt-free morning or afternoon pick-me-up.
