Vegan Mofo: Lunch on the Go

Today's Vegan Mofo theme is "Lunch on the Go." I guess that could mean a lot things — fave fast food, stuff to eat in the car, etc. But I thought I'd take this opportunity to tell you about one of my favorite easy work day lunches.

I cook a few days a week, and the leftovers from those meals usually become my lunches for the week. I tend to work through lunch most days, just munching on a meal at my desk while I'm writing or editing or checking emails. But some days, I don't have leftovers — like if I haven't had time to cook much that week. On those days, I love frozen convenience foods.

And my very favorite frozen foods are Sweet Earth burritos! I like to pair them with veggie sides, usually procured from the Whole Foods deli. Last week, I had the Kyoto Burrito with Cajun Spiced Sweet Potato Wedges from Whole Foods and a Pure Doctor Live Kombucha Soda.

This Sweet Earth burrito had adzuki beans, edamame, bok choy, shiitakes, spinach, and ginger. This was the first time I've had this flavor, and it was probably my least fave of the burrito line. But still delicious! My fave is the Big Sur breakfast burrito with tofu scramble, but I also love the Indian-spiced Curry Tiger burrito (it has seitan!).

The sweet potatoes were awesome. Perfectly spiced. I could easily make them at home, but then I would have had to cook. And I didn't have time for that last week. 

That Live Kombucha Soda was probably the best thing about lunch though. I first sampled these at Vida Vegan Con, and I finally found them sold here at Target (which is also where I buy the Sweet Earth burritos). The soda tasted just like Dr. Pepper, but it's stevia-sweetened, and it's booch!

I mentioned the Sweet Earth burritos in my post too! Specifically the Curry Tiger, which is my favorite! They are by far the best frozen vegan burrito I've tasted! I love that kombucha too! The root beer is outstanding as well!

Yum! I saw some of the Sweet Earth burritos when I was in Hawaii on the way home. I would have loved to have the chance to try them, they sounded so interesting and yummy.
