MoFo'n Lunch on the Go.

Lunch on the Go.

Well, I typically wake up with about 30 minutes to get ready and bike to work which doesn't leave me with very much time to make lunch.

My Go-To Lunch on the Go is Big Salads and Sandwiches.

I bike to work everyday, so carrying lunch can prove difficult. I've made it easy on myself by throwing a huge salad into a ziploc bag and squeezing all the excess air out of it. It's now compact and light enough to fit in my backpack.


This is a collage of some of the salads and sandwiches I've put together in a snap and biked to work with. Sometimes, I get to enjoy my lunch by the Boise River and sometimes, I'm too busy to get away from my desk. Kindly bare with some of the poor photo quality.



That's it! A relatively boring post about my Lunch on the Go, Go-To lunch Monday through Friday.

Tomorrow: Veganize an old family recipe, see y'all there.
ICYMI: Here's MoFo'n Day 18:  Honor a human or non human animal who inspires your veganism.

Can't get enough? I'm all over the place, let's follow each other (cause that doesn't sound creepy, at all!)  InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.  Nothing makes me heart more full than when people let me know they've tried my recipes. If you wanna help make my heart happy you can # vegan4one, comment on the post, post on my wall, tweet at me; whichever socials you feel comfy with.

All the love,

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
