This is the first in what I hope to become a series. I’m looking to show folks just how easy it is to eat plant-based/ vegan on the road.
As a cable guy, I am on the road for 10 hours a day. It’s so easy to just stop at the local Cumberland Farms or 7-11 and pick up some garbage to eat, but it can be just as easy to pack up some grub to gnaw on throughout the day.
So today, this is what I packed for lunch:
1/3 of a baggie filled with raw baby carrots
4 Vanilla Joe-Joes
1/2 baggie of Trader Joe’s Kettle Popped Popcorn Chips
For my actual lunch I’ve got some amazing shepherds pie my wife made. Most of my lunches have leftovers from the night before. That is unless I make some time and prep meals for the week, which doesn’t happen as often as it should.
Cold shepherds pie?!? It doesn’t have to be. I’ve not had a problem asking a customer to use a microwave, or I’ve even stopped into that Cumberland Farms or 7-11 and asked to use the microwave they have. Heck, if I knew I was eating lunch soon I just put the container on my vents on the dashboard and let it heat while I drive to the next job. Seriously, it’s not hard to just make things work.
