It’s no snaccident that these foods are vegan.
It’s automatically assumed that adopting a vegan diet is quite difficult. And though this can be true in some cases, there are, believe it or not, plenty of options to ensure it’s really not. When you just can’t make it to lunch or dinner without grabbing something quick and easy to munch on especially, following a vegan, vegetarian, or plant-based diet can seem like a daunting task.
Luckily, there’s already an abundance of options in existence—ones that don’t require any animal product, are just as delicious as non-vegan food items if not more, and are easy on the wallet. This begs the question: If we can enjoy food without the need for animal products, eat generally healthier while still remain within budget, why don’t we choose to? Here, we’ve gathered some of the best vegan-friendly snacks in this list that are perfect on the go and ones that you probably thought could never be vegan.
Empanadas – Vutcher
Vutcher is a plant-based version of your typical carinderia. They’ve got your favorite classic Filipino dishes from sisig to adobo and even a 100% vegan alternative to Jollibee’s sweet-style spaghetti and peach mango pie. Among their other bestsellers include their empanadas which come in seven different flavors.
Ensaymada – Baker’s Gallery Cafe
Making freshly baked breads, cakes, and other plant-based goodies, Baker’s Gallery Café takes pride in providing alternatives that are almost hard to believe are actually vegan. Though they’ve got quite a handful of delicious treats to choose from, their Ensaymada tops the cake. They’ve got it in classic cheese, ube, and caramel flavor.
Faux Trix – Mindful Indulgence
Store-bought Snickers are unfortunately not vegan-friendly. Luckily, Mindful Indulgence has a Faux Trix bar that’s a healthier yet equally indulgent option for when the sugar cravings kick in. They’re naturally sweet and made with only a handful and the simplest ingredients in comparison to your ordinary Snickers bar.
Vegan Mozzarella Sticks – The Vegan Grocer
Mozzarella sticks are just one of the best comfort foods. They’re the perfect snack for movie and game nights or even just eating them for the heck of it.
