Aren’t we tired of searching for realistic vegan food options on the internet and not finding one? Welcome to one-stop best food solutions for vegans. Here you will find all the healthy as well as snack food options as per your liking in addition to some grocery shopping recommendations that will make you pin them on your board.
Fast Food Options
Did you know that Chipotle had vegan options? Us neither! In the vegan substitute, the star ingredient (rice) takes over its chicken counterparts in a swift move allying with the veggies to throw those extra calories out and ensure you of purely vegan nourishment. Many stores, especially vegan ones, now have this option available.
Other foods such as Domino’s Thin Crust Pizza, Taco Bell Black Bean Crunch wrap Supreme, Panda Express Chow Mein and Eggplant Tofu etc. with some customizations can also be made vegan friendly.
In Southern India, the day has another special significance. It’s the day a much-worshipped deity, Krishna annihilated a tyrannical king, Naraka, and freed the inhabitants that were imprisoned by the king. A tale with a different story, yet one that celebrates freedom and light in the lives of people.
Domino’s Thin Crust Pizza skips the cheese and enables custom veggies options, at the same time, the Taco Bell Black Bean Crunch wrap Supreme subs out the nacho cheese and sour cream along with some other interesting options such as Bean Burrito “Fresco Style” which removes cheddar cheese perpetuating its “vegan on a budget” theme. Panda Express which previously had zero vegan options now flaunts its Chow Mein and Eggplant Tofu which is an irresistible vegan combination.
Putting a cherry on top almost literally Baskin Robbins too now has a vegan ice-cream. It has flavor options of Alphonso Mango and Chocolate Mississippi Mud. With major food giants such as Burger King, Subway, Carl’s Jr and many others launching their vegan food options, a simultaneous world is being developed by mixing the healthy with the previously judged as unhealthy food.
Home made Solutions
Vegans are known for their innovative home-made food ideas partly due to the remotely available fast food. Customarily plenty of vegan recipes have their roots in India and other Asian countries like the much venerated Vegetable Biryani which is an exotic mix of rice and vegetables loaded with almost a dozen spices, so you don’t miss the flavour and feel full.
Some other tropical dishes include Chinese eggplant with Szechuan sauce, grilled mushroom burger, Szechuan tofu and veggies, Middle-Eastern salad tacos and many more. Indian brinjal curries, Mexican pinto beans, Moroccan chickpea and sweet potato salad etc. are some other distant dishes which carry the ability to bring both flavour and variety in your daily vegan routine. All recipes are available online with the ingredients dropped at your doorstep to cheer you at every step of the way.
Can we be the hope that animals need to free them of bondage? Will a day come when Diwali will also be India’s Vegan Day? The answer lies in one and only one question we can ask ourselves: Do we have the willpower in us to triumph over our need to control and enslave?
Nailing That Grocery List
The prime concern of every vegan is what to include and what not to within that stringent budget of yours. Things that are a must to include are vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts and grains and oils. Fruits may include Apples, Pears, Kiwis, Oranges, Lemons, Bananas, Grapes etc. or even frozen or dried fruits which help you kickstart your day with a fruity flavour.
Vegetables which constitute a major part of your diet should include Broccoli, Carrots, Celery, Cauliflower, Cucumbers, Peas, Tomatoes, Bell peppers etc. One must not at any cost forget the legumes, grains and beans. Chickpeas, soy products are equally important to maintain a balanced diet. Finishing with nuts and oils provides that final touch needed to put you at par with your non-vegetarian compadres.
In a developing world, there are many options available for a person willing to make the change in their diet. Are you ready to step out and pursue them?
