Vegan Breakfast on the Go
Being vegan is thankfully becoming increasingly easier but at times it's still difficult to find something to grab on the go. Whilst vegan sandwiches and salads are easy to find in shops and cafes, finding something to snack on for breakfast on the go is another thing entirely. For years my go to food was nuts. They taste delicious, are nutritious, affordable and you can find them pretty much anywhere. However, there are only so many years I can have a nut breakfast, after a while it gets a little boring. Sure, many times I jazzed things up with the addition of vegan, low sugar dark chocolate or a piece of fruit, but three foods to choose from is not exactly variety, let's face it.
Thankfully more and more foods that can be conveniently eaten on the go are coming out.
I've recently discovered Squirrel Sisters raw energy bars. Made with fruit and nuts, these delicious snacks don't contain refined sugar and come in four delicious flavours: cocoa brownie, coconut cashew, cocoa orange and raspberry ripple. They are stocked in Boots, Whole Foods, Planet Organic and Holland and Barrett so they are really easy to get hold of. They are a brilliant snack to have on the go.
Abakus Foods do some great snacks too. Their range is based on jujube, a type of Chinese date, and hickory nuts. Their products include dried jujube, stuffed jujube with walnuts, cashews and almonds, jujube crisps (my favourite), jujube granules and sprinkles and hickory nuts, a nutrient packed nut from the hickory tree that tastes and looks a little like pecans. Abakus Foods are stocked in Ocado, Whole Foods, Budgens, Avoca, Grape Tree, and Revital.
I'm a coffee lover and adore the iced variety. Instead of buying an expensive one in a coffee shop, I often pop an oat milk Jimmy's Iced Coffee Dairy Free in my bag and drink it during my commute.
During the day I like to drink green tea, in particular Matcha tea. Vivid Matcha comes in both larger bags and individually packed sachet, so it's great to carry in your bag and just add hot water whenever you feel like having tea. It can also be used in smoothies, vegan yogurt, and sprinkled on cereals.
