Fast food is not the healthiest option on the planet, but hey, sometimes you’re on the road (like during this holiday season!) and the only thing in sight is an exit with a measly gas station and a few good ole’ American drive-thurs. Luckily, vegans can find a few things.
Frozen food has come a long way since it first hit American supermarkets more than 50 years ago. Just look at Amy’s Kitchen, a vegetarian prepared foods brand whose founders began with a humble vision of providing tasty meals to like-minded people. Now, Amy’s meals can be found in most grocery stores — big and small — across the United States.
How cool would it be for vegetarians and vegans to have access to a meatless fast-food restaurant? What if we could order items that are similar to those at McDonalds, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, but in a totally meatless fashion? Such a dream has arrived! Amy’s Kitchen is set to open an all-veggie drive thru in Rohnert Park, California this July.
As customers ask for whole foods options that are free of junk, more restaurants are stepping up to meet the demand with quality food. Chipotle, one of my favorite places to get a quick bite, is leading the pack here. A couple of months ago, the company announced it would no longer serve foods made with GMOs. Now, the Mexican food chain is testing a new, all-natural tortilla that contains only four ingredients!
Vegan eating without the fuss is TOTALLY possible. I took pictures to prove it 😀
Here are ten, easy, plant-based meal ideas – straight from the mouth of a lazy vegan!
