Whether you’re doing Veganuary, you’re a long term vegan or you just want to eat more veg this year, what on earth to take to work for your packed lunch can be tricky. Here I’ve collated 30 delicious vegan packed lunch ideas to make your life just that little bit easier.
My husband is doing Veganuary this year for the first time and he’s been taking in leftovers for work most days so far. If you have access to a fridge and microwave at work this will save you time and money and is something I definitely recommend.
Soups are also a great idea. If you make a big pot of your favourite soup at the weekend then your vegan packed lunches for the week are sorted. If you don’t have a microwave you can heat it at home and take it to work in a Thermos flask.
However, sometimes a vegan lunch on the go needs to be cold, so I’ve also included plenty of delicious salads, sandwiches and wraps for you to try.
Let me know if you try any of these recipes. What is your favourite vegan lunch?
