The ultimate animal-free sweet

First of all, apologies for the lack of posts over the last few days. I have just moved house and trying to get some sort of internet access has been a painfully slow process! 

Breakfast

Muesli, soya milk

This was the Co-op muesli, which makes a nice energising start to the day. The Co-op and Sainsbury’s both say whether their products are vegan so it’s easy to choose. It’s generally pretty easy to find vegan muesli, although Alpen annoyingly contains milk powder.

Lunch

Hummus and falafel wrap, chilli crackers

This is my usual choice of bought lunch from Tesco, but it is very nice. Tesco also do a roasted veg and hummus sandwich which is another reliable vegan sandwich option.

Dinner

Spinach, tofu and butter bean salad, pitta bread

Getting ready to move had resulted in severely restricted cooking time, but this super-quick salad was actually pretty nice. I just filled up a bowl with spinach leaves, then added good handfuls of marinated tofu pieces and butter beans, plus a drizzle of olive oil. The marinated tofu pieces were the Cauldron brand and seem to be quite readily available in the supermarket.  They’re great to use in salads or sandwiches.

Dessert

Orange, licorice

The licorice was the Panda brand, raspberry flavour. In fact, many of the Panda licorice products seem to be animal-free and are helpfully marked as vegan. The raspberry flavour is one of my favourites and I think it’s fairly healthy as sweets go (less than 0.5% fat according to the packet). It’s available in Holland and Barrett (please click here to see).
