peanut butter crackers!



There are a million different salads you could make... though I have no specific ideas right now. Sorry.

Veggie wraps. I'm sure the tortillas can't be bad! Stuff w/ hummus or other spreads and loads of vegetables.

Blue, have you tried Brownberry Natural Wheat Bread? It's vegan and absolutely delicious!



I'm at a loss for lunch ideas, though. I usually have a sandwich.

I'm with Charity on veggie wraps. My husband takes a lunch to work everyday, and dosen't heat it, and wraps are one of his favorites. My favorite wraps are sauted kale with garlic and shredded carrots with browned (or baked ) tofu with a garlic vinagrette. Or you could make a tofu salad and put that in wraps. If you're not opposed to eating cold leftovers, just make a little extra dinner the night before. As far as bread goes, are you near a Trader Joe's? I love their Organic wheat bread, it's vegan and delish.

you may be able to find yourself a small (cheap) thermos/flask...then you can take in some hot soups. Yum.

Howcome your stats say you're in Australia? I was just researching my favorite bread to see if it was in Australia and then you say you're in Asia!!



In any case, three bean salad is easy. Ingrediants: 3 types of beans and dressing.



That's it. You can get fancy and try different types of dressings or different types of beans, but usally it's kidneys, garbonzo (chickpeas), and navy or pinto beans. Then you can make your own dressing or just use a regular salad dressing. Sometimes I add a slivered onion or sundried tomatoes. This goes well with hummus!

Perhaps make a cucumber salad? add some seaweed to it, onions, rice vinegar or applecider vinegar?



I've seen lots of soup thermos's in asian markets, at least in the U.S, maybe some miso soup with tofu etc.



Cold tofu, sliced tomato's and basalmic vinegar with some basil make an awesome salad also.

There's always vegetarian ramen! I know that even here in ittybittytown USA we have Kim-Chee ramen, completely vegan, so I'm sure in asia there's a better selection of veg*n ramens. If you get a thermos, you could boil some water and put in it and then pour it on the ramen when you were ready, or you could even make the ramen at home and take it in the thermos to work.



May I ask where in Asia? I've always wanted to go to Japan (and Thailand..and Vietnam...and Korea...and China...), I'd be interested in reading about your experiences where you are.

If you're going to take the leap to make your own bread...



Why not make something like banana bread? Or a zucchini loaf... A couple slices of fancy-pants loaf bread, maybe some fruits and nuts...



Hm. Something I had for lunch one time... I had leftover rice, chickpeas, and some vegetables (I think spinach?) and tossed in a balsalmic vinaigrette thing. It tasted better cold.

Tofu jerky. You can (supposedly) make it in an oven. There's a recipe in How it All Vegan...if I remember to bring my copy to work tomorrow, I'll post it. Then all you need is some fruit and maybe some veggies and hummus and you've got lunch.



I also love making a huge fruit salad out of whatever fruit I can find and eat that all day.

I really like cold food so I will eat just about any leftovers from dinner, cold the next day for lunch. Today I have leftover Mexican-ish stuff. Lettuce, tomato, Spanish rice, refried beans, a little tvp, a flour tortilla, and some salsa. I'll make a taco salad with it. I've also taken cold noodles of all sorts, and even cold stew. Maybe I'm weird, but try it, you might like some things cold that are normally served warm.
