Today I thought I would take a gamble and not bring lunch in to work…big mistake! After wandering around for a while finding nothing vegetarian without egg or dairy I had a light bulb moment and thought “Rice paper rolls!”, only to find my usual vendor had closed down so that left a choice of cucumber/avocado sushi rolls (OK some days but not what I had in mind for a chilly Melbourne day). Luckily I have a Coles close by so I ducked into the supermarket and purchased a La Zuppa Sweet Corn soup – not bad at all. It contained all natural ingredients and no preservatives or weird numbers to decipher. On the down side, a hell of a lot of salt is used to make it taste half-way decent. But when you’re desparate it will do. I’ve scoffed mine with a crusty bread roll. Other options I’ve turned to in the past include:
- Dolmades from the Deli – buy a lemon as well to squeeze over the top
- Moroccan chickpea salad from the Deli also
- Falafel wrap minus the yogurt sauce and check if the humus contains dairy
- 4 bean salad (as long as the dressing isn’t dairy based)
I’m not very organised this week sadly so will need to do a major shop and get some supplies.
