Planning is the key to success. It’s that simple.

Whether you’re headed to the beach, to the mountains, or you have a busy workday ahead, follow these essential steps to help you quickly plan snacks so you can lead a delicious and fun on-the-go lifestyle.

On-The-Go? Let’s Make it Cheesy

The first step is to make sure you have the basic kitchen essentials needed to set you up for success. You should have a quality set of knives, a good cutting board, and you may even want to invest in a mandolin to make the chopping and shredding process easier (and also kind of fun!). Ever wonder how shredded carrots in those Insta pics come out so pretty, or how your favorite restaurant’s sliced veggies are so uniform? It’s probably because a mandolin was involved!

Busy, on-the-go people should also have some great food containers in different sizes and a few well-insulated lunch bags or cooler bags. Packing your food properly will ensure a safe temp is maintained and your treats will be fresh when it comes time to eat. This is key to being successful in this plant-based journey— having tasty and delicious food at-the-ready, regardless of where the day takes you.

Now, head to your favorite grocery store and stock up on fresh veggies, fruits, crackers, nuts, and all the different types of glorious plant-based Vevan cheeses available.

A Busy Schedule Doesn’t Have to Mean Skipping Snacktime

When you’re busy, you may forget to eat regularly, so plan ahead and always have snacks packed. And when following a dairy-free lifestyle, you might not be able to quickly and easily find a snack that suits your needs on your travels. Always having an awesome snack on-hand is a smart move. Plus, it’s proven that snacking can reduce hangriness in most cases! Ok, actually that’s not been proven, but there’s other evidence that healthy snacking is beneficial to your health.

Cut-up fruit and veggies are always smart snacking choices. Nuts and dried fruits are also filling and healthy options to keep handy. Stock your refrigerator with non-dairy convenient snack options like Vevan Snax too. Available in two varieties, both Snax deliver a burst of flavor that fills you up and satisfies any palate.

When you don’t have time to plan out your snacks, be sure to stock on up Vevan Snax. Lemon Poppyseed Snax are creamy bite-size cubes of Vevan Mozza, infused with poppyseeds and a hint of lemon. They’re paired with flavorful dried blueberries and roasted, salted cashews. The refreshingly slightly sweet and a little salty taste is a great choice for snacking or even a new take for plant-based breakfast on-the-go!

If you crave heat and spice in your snack, you’ll love P’Jack Snax. The spice of Vevan’s P’Jack is paired with tart dried cranberries and smoky almonds creating a snack that’s oh so delicious, you will probably want more than just one.

Another tasty snack option is Vevan’s new Marinated Mozza-Bites. These deliciously creamy bites of dairy-free herbed Mozza marinated in an herbed oil blend can be packed in a multi divided snack container and paired with grape tomatoes and olives for a caprese-style snack.

Or, since Marinated Mozza-Bites are in such a convenient package, simply pack a fork and just eat them right out of the container. Another super convenient option is Marinated Mozza-Bites Antipasti – just like Marinated Mozza-Bites, Marinated Antipasti is ready to serve so it can be devoured right out of its container. If anyone is staring, it means they’re just jealous they didn’t think of it first.
