If I were to eat more frequently, as in smaller, meals, what are some good vegan ones that kind of try to contain mroe than one thing. (i.e fat and protien as well as carbohydrates!)? Thanks. Would a sandwich count?
I make a lot of soups and put them in little containers that I sometimes freeze if there is a lot. A also make a lot of rice dishes and pasta dishes and then just eat them in small portions and save the rest for later. The different things I make usually involve different veggie combinations, etc. I own a lot of little containers. If you have access to a microwave, they're easy to heat up. I also usually carry around little baggies of nuts and/or dried fruits.
burritos! If you use a tortilla (carbs) beans/meat substitute (protein) and guacamole (fat) you've got a little complete meal. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">
One of my favorite snacks is to have a couple whole wheat crackers w/peanut butter. You could add an apple if you want.<br><br><br><br>
How about whole wheat bread w/avocado and a slice of soy cheese. Maybe add other veggies, too.<br><br><br><br>
I like the burrito idea.
felafel wraps (chickpeas, hummus, tabouli in lebanese bread)<br><br>
mini pizzas (vegies, soycheese made on english muffins)<br><br>
californian sushi rolls (rice, veg, tofu)<br><br>
smoothies (fruit, soymilk/yogurt, some type of blended cereal)<br><br>
spring rolls or vietnamese rolls<br><br>
samosa, bhajis or pakoras<br><br>
salad (beans, vegies, rice/pasta cold)
What I do is just take what would be a regular meal, and then eat it over time. For example, I'm at work all day, and I bring my lunch. My whole lunch today was a PB&J, Fritos, and green beans. I ate the Fritos for a midmorning snack, at the PB&J at the traditional "Lunch" time around noon, and plan on eating the beans around 3 or 4. This might work as well?<br><br><br><br>
Sandwiches can be a full meal if you make sure you get protein. PB&J's are great because you get a grain, a fruit, and a protein.
