Vegan Lunches 10:00 - Oct 19 with 4142 viewsHarryWright

So i'm giving this Vegan thing a go for minimum of a month to see how it goes - Quite interested in the health benefits of it and want to see what effect it would have.

One thing i'm struggling with is food to prepare then take to work and eat cold as most recipes seem to be if you're cooking them there and then.

Anyone got any suggestions or even sites I could look at to give me some ideas?

You must be a natural vegan as the first step is telling everyone about it.....

If you like falafel, then wraps with falafel, some salad, and a sauce work quite well... falafel, chopped jarred peppers and hummous ( or vegan tsatsiki) is a simple lunch...

Pitta pizzas.

Wholemeal pittas
Pizza sauce - Sainsburys/Asda both do decent ones with no added sugar
Vegan cheese - Callis will be able to advise
Veggies of your choice

If you want a bit more protein add some Quorn vegan pieces.


Quorn gets plenty of stick on here but it's very good IMO. It's not soy based either unlike most vegan products.

To be fair, the first two replies are mocking the bloke. It's not necessary.

There's loads of salads you can make in big batches. Tabouleh is great and will keep for a few days, caponata is also good. They're filling and tasty, you can always supplement with some bread if you want extra carbs.

I did some Vegan pizza for no other reason that I fancied trying something

Tyne Chease was recommended to me as a cheese substitute (eireblue). Go for that than the VoiLife cheese.

Yup, salads:
tabbouleh, loads of lemon and parsley olives and capers and whatever,
Brown rice and black beans and roasted peppers etc
bulgar wheat, cashews, spinach, flame raisins etc
homemade humous (very very easy, takes less than five minutes to make loads) in wraps with whatever you got

Make chilli

In general get yourself in loads of pulses and grains like bulgar wheat, couscous, tabbouleh, orzo (not sure if that's vegan, I'm not one, just vegetarian mostly. also not sure if all those things are grains. well they definitely aren't.), and loads of stuff like olives, capers, sundried tomatoes

We grow loads of parsley in the garden, mash it up with hazlenuts and oil for pesto, lasts ages, is delicious and much better than the rubbish tiny little jars you get from the shops.

I quite often have carrot sticks/pepper/celary/cucumber and humous for lunch with a bag of crisps and maybe a banana if I'm feeling devilish.

Why not? Far more nutrition in that than most people get in their lunch. Plenty of fibre, vitamins and minerals especially if he adds veg. The pizza sauce is pretty much tomatoes, herbs and onions. When I make it I have half fat cheese instead of vegan cheese. That adds plenty of calcium and protein to the mix as well as other micro-nutrients.

You may have up to 3 wine gums with your pizza.

Try this for a sandwich - Granary bread, houmous, Sliced tomato, Avocado, baby salad leaves. The tomato can be changed for mixed diced peppers if you prefer, either way this is a tasty and pretty healthy sandwich.

Well done for giving it a try, I will be doing Veganuary again next year, its a challenge but with a bit of planning it becomes easier than you think.

Houmous will be your best friend for the next month!
