Vegan Meal Ideas to Order during Office Lunch Breaks

Being a vegan means eating fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains, and beans only. It excludes all animal-derived ingredients like meat, fish, eggs, milk, and other dairy products. Moreover, vegan is not just an eating preference, but an entire lifestyle.

A vegan is against animal cruelty and abuse of all kinds. They don't use clothing made of fur, wool, and leather. They avoid cosmetics, health, and skincare products that use animals for testing them. Also, if animals are used in the manufacturing of any product, vegans keep away from it.

It requires a lot of conscious efforts daily as being a vegan has its pros and cons. It can help in becoming healthy and in maintaining optimal weight.

Vegan diets are multiple combinations of fresh organic vegetables, legumes, grains, seeds, beans, plant-based protein, vegan meats, and vegan dairy products. But it's not too easy to cook vegan food since a lot must be kept in mind while trying vegan recipes. Spices, condiments, seasonings, and everything must be shopped carefully looking at the labels saying, "Vegan friendly".

Finding and having vegan delicacies outside the home and in restaurants is another major task as only a few food joints offer vegan-friendly dishes. Moreover, preparing vegan food for easy tiffin recipes is yet another challenging task in the morning while juggling family responsibilities, kids, work pressure, or other businesses. Therefore, we at VMeals provide you with many delicious vegan meal plan in Dubai if you don't want to stress about cooking.

It serves as an excellent option for office lunch. This is one of the most satiating, healthful, and tasty vegan lunches.
