Many restaurants and grocery stores now offer a variety of plant-based foods, but if you’re frequently on-the-go, planning ahead is key to ensuring you will have a deliciously good time while still maintaining your plant-based diet.

Coming up with some go-to meals and staples so that you’re always prepared can be a daunting task. Have no fear though, we’re here to make it cheesy (and easy) with some of our favorite recipes that have quick prep and travel well.

On-the-Go Meals for a Plant-Based Diet

Favorite staple:

Whether looking to pack a hand-held breakfast for your morning commute, a tasty lunch, or a yummy snack, we love these Easy Cheesy Biscuits. They are delicious served warm or cold and can be made in a big batch and frozen — talk about convenience! This recipe is flexible too, so if you are following a gluten-free, dairy-free, or lactose-free diet, it can check all the boxes.

Favorite lunch:

Make your friends jealous when you sit down to lunch and start feasting on this delicious Quinoa Bowl. This quick and easy bowl delivers the delightful combination of olives, mint, and lemon in a delicious and hearty blend. Our Vevan Mozza-Melts add a delightful smooth and creamy texture to this light but satisfying dish.

We love this one as an on-the-go option because you can just take the dressing separately and drizzle on the quinoa and veggie blend at your final destination! (Note: this dish is best served while browsing Greek vacation options online, but can also be a great option for lunch at the office or an impromptu picnic in the park.)

Favorite BYO:

Your friends are having a barbecue, yay! A great option is to bring a delicious plant-based veggie burger to the party. But for an even tastier option, we love this dish and it may make your carnivore friends rethink their own plate. The BBQ’ed Teriyaki Tofu Bowl features the tanginess of teriyaki and sweetness of pineapple to complement fresh grilled tofu, vegetables, and Vevan P’Jack-Shred.

If they’re firing up the grill, bring the tofu and pineapple to toss on or bring the entire dish ready to be assembled— it will be ready in a flash.

Favorite All Around Go-To:

No matter your reason for needing on-the-go meals, this assortment of delicious dishes means you will always have something to eat that fits your plant-based lifestyle.

Drumroll please! This twist on a classic makes the Veggie Sandwich our all around favorite go-to recipe. Make it ahead of time and leave it in the fridge for a quick bite. Pack a few in a cooler and head to the beach, or make several and take on a platter for the next potluck. Not only does this recipe incorporate the best ingredients your farmer’s market offers, it also gives you a chance to be creative and switch up sandwich spreads.
