Quick bites on the go

Food to take home
If you’re lacking inspiration or aren’t sure where to get started with a plant-based or vegetarian diet, more brands than ever are launching vegan and veggie ranges to help you cook at home.
From fuss-free ready-made meals to scratch cooking ingredients, there’s plenty of choice and new ideas in the M&S Plant Kitchen.

Or why not bag yourself a new vegan or veggie recipe book from WHSmith. You’ll be able to browse some of the most popular vegan cookbooks with bestsellers including BOSH! and The Green Roasting Tin.
There’s also lots of inspiration online. Simply choose your dish, and pick up all of the tasty ingredients from M&S. And don’t forget to bring a reusable bag – Wilko has a great range of tote bags for your groceries if you’re looking for something a little different.
And if you are making the switch to a vegan diet more permanently, you also might want to think about picking up a vegan multivitamin from Boots to make sure you have all the nutrients you need as you transition.
Satisfying your sweet tooth
Plenty of brands have variations of classic tasty treats especially for vegetarians such as veggie Percy Pigs at M&S and delicious vegan chocolate at Hotel Chocolat. They also make perfect vegan gifts for birthdays or celebrations!
