vegan lunch eaten by vegan vet at work with almond spread sandwich on rye bread and salad

My first day of full consulting as a vegan vet!

I felt that I had to be extra organised as a short time in the morning before setting off for work to do my plogging, get Ruff’s meal prepared, my daughter to school and me to work (and it’s raining so LOTS of traffic). I am used to taking everything to eat for the day – including a snack for when I set off home, and it didn’t seem any harder preparing vegan food than my normal ‘work food’.

Happy to tell my colleagues at work that I had decided to ‘go vegan’:)

Breakfast:

  • Rolled raw oats
  • Soya milk
  • 1 tbsp Linwoods flaxseed, almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts and CoEnzyme Q10 mix
  • Coconut yoghurt (really delicious one I found at Sainsbury)
  • Handful blueberries
  • Tic toc redbush earl grey tea (my favourite) with soya milk
  • 1 vitamin D tablet (taken them all through winter so will only stop in the summer)
  • 1 hrt tablet (keeps my hormones in check!)

Mid – morning work break snack:

  • 1 banana
  • Cup caramel tea with Soya milk

Lunch:

  • Salad of lettuce, lamb’s lettuce, baby tomatoes, 1/2 avocado, sprinkling pinenuts, malt vinegar and olive oil
  • 1 pear
  • 1/2 punnet Blueberries
  • 2 slices wholewheat rye bread sandwich with Flora dairy free spread and almond paste (all from Lidl)
  • Raw cocoa nibs – quite an acquired taste – I get teased at work that I am eating bark; but really moreish and satisfies my midday chocolate craving

Mid-afternoon work break snack:

  • Paleo bar from Aldi – almond, cashew and date bar
  • Cup caramel tea with frothed delicious Oatley Barista milk – the closest I can get to a cappucino!

Drive home to keep me awake in the car!:

  • Almonds and raisins – (small box of raisins from Lidl)

Dinner

– my favourite meal – Channa dahl made from Vegetarian Nosh for Students book (bought for our son:):

  • Cook together with olive oil – onions, fresh grated ginger ginger, garlic, curry powder, coconut tin, tin chopped tomato, tin drained chickpeas, black pepper – let simmer
  • Serve with fresh coriander on the top
  • Mangetout beans from Lidl
  • Coconut yoghurt (it is delicious – the one from Sainsbury)
  • 1 passion fruit
  • 2 squares delicious 90% dark Lindt chocolate (bitter but SO chocolatey!)
  • Cup mint tea to settle my very bubbly tummy!
