You don't always have time to pack a
vegan lunch, prepare quick vegan snacks, or plan your entire vacation around
vegan restaurants. The good news is, a few national restaurants and convenience
stores have your back when you're away from your kitchen. Here are five vegan
meals you can get anywhere:
to Eat: The
The veggie bowl is everything you'd find
in a regular burrito, without the tortilla. White rice, black beans, green
peppers and onions smothered in mild salsa, corn, guac, and lettuce make this
meal an unbeatable option. (Photo by Michelle Carr/PETA)
to Go: Subway
The Veggie Delite
Skip the cheese, and get your sammy on
Italian bread. Stack it high with lettuce,
tomatoes, green peppers, black olives, onions, pepperoncinis, and pickles. Our
