Catching Up On Foodie Finds - Food On The Go

I've found a few new lunch time options over the past few months - here are a few of them...


ITSU

Itsu have a few good vegan savoury options but I've always found them to be lacking in sweets - until now! They've started doing their own raw chocolate with pink himalayan salt (which is divine), and The Coconut Collaborative's chocolate pudding! Yum!





PRET A MANGER

Pret have added more to their ever-increasing vegan menu, and I am so glad that they did! I'm in love with the two new cauliflower salad boxes.



CAULI & TURMERIC SUPER-VEG SALAD
A vegan salad of turmeric-roasted cauliflower, spiralised courgette, cucumber, edamame beans and pickled cabbage served on a bed of spinach and brown rice & red quinoa. Finished with a pot of teryaki dressing and toasted cashew nuts.


SUPER BEANS, BROCCOLI & TURMERIC CAULI VEGGIE BOX
A Veggie Box of turmeric-roasted cauliflower, broccoli florets and our super bean mix of protein-rich fava beans & split peas combined with roasted butternut squash, pomegranate seeds and our seed mix. All served on a bed of mixed brown rice & red quinoa with a pot of ginger & turmeric dressing.

Also picture is the DAIRY-FREE BIRCHER Using our gluten-free granola and dairy-free coconut yoghurt, this twist on a bircher muesli is a delicious 'free from' choice, which is fantastic (but not that new!

Pret are currently rolling out veggie fridges to a number of their stores as a test to see how popular they are. I have everything crossed that they will be coming to Leeds...


SAINSBURY'S

I was really excited when I found out that Sainsbury's were going to start selling a vegan sandwich. I managed to get hold of one on the way home from work one day but I found it very disappointing. It felt like there hadn't been much thought put into the flavours - it was pretty much just tomato puree and avocado, with a couple of basil leaves thrown in. I think what put me off the most was that the avocado was definitely not ripe - it was like trying to eat soap.



200 DEGREES

I pretty much ignored 200 Degrees when they opened in Leeds. It looked like a fancy coffee shop, and I don't like coffee, so I wasn't going to go in on the off chance that they had something vegan. However, I saw someone posting online about their vegan options, so thought I'd give it a go! It was great! They only had one vegan sandwich but it was really tasty. Unfortunately, they don't ALWAYS have a vegan option on, so it is very much a gamble as to whether you'll be able to get lunch there or not. However, last time I popped in and they didn't have a vegan sandwich, they did have a very delicious vegan brownie! (It didn't last long enough for a photo...)
