Pack Your Lunch!

Hi guys!  As you guys know, August is coming on fast, and with it the start of school. 

Packing your lunch is cheaper, healthier, and accustomed to your taste buds.  Being vegan, I kind of have to pack my lunch to ensure that my meal is meat-, egg-, and dairy-free.  I've been packing my own lunch for years, even when I was in elementary school.  (Thank goodness for PB + J's.)  Since then, my school lunches have evolved.

If I have convinced you to try veganism- or vegan before six- and to pack your lunch, here are some ideas.

  1. loving these lunches!

    on that "not tuna spread" does it matter if the almonds are raw? toasted?


    1. The almond are raw! Then soaked :) Makes them "juicy"

  2. These ALL look so good! Enjoyed my leftover Subway sandwich today! Looking forward to the rest of the salad you made before we went to Lisa's. It's already in the fridge at work waiting on me!

  3. Wow! Those look great! Question: when do you have time to pack these lunches?
