I know, I know. I owe you a post on the second full day of the conference. If you read my recap of day one you know that I spent a lot of time editing photos, linking to speakers and combing through my notes to bring as much of Vida Vegan Con to you as possible. I promise to finish the second day recap on Saturday (darn day job gets in the way).
Today let me share a surprisingly wonderful, vegan lunch that I enjoyed on campus yesterday. Long-time readers know that I pack my lunch (and snacks) religiously. But between Hurricane Irene (no power in the house = husband got to skip grocery shopping) and my jet lag / lack of energy post-con, I went to work with no lunch and no snacks.
We have a faculty/staff dining room but the vegan options are rare and barely satisfying. I decided to go the student cafe — I haven’t been in over a year (since before going vegan). Much to my surprise, they have added a “MexiCafe” counter. I ordered a Mexi-Bowl.
It hit the spot!
It’s great to know that on those off days, when I just can’t pull it together to pack a lunch, I have a healthy, tasty, vegan option on campus.
Do you have healthy vegan dining options at work?
