Over the weekend I had the best vegan gluten free pizza I ever had. When I called Grey Block they told me that Gluten Free only came in one size - XL - and it was $30. My response? This better be the best damn pizza I've ever had. The reality? This was the best damn pizza I've ever had. If you want an incredible gluten free crust and animal free - order the Farmer's Delight.
Being vegan doesn't take a lot of time or money! Take it from me. I put together a meal in about five minutes and save my money for clothes. The list below will tell you how to be vegan while existing on only fast food...not that this future vegan Martha Stewart would ever eat fast food.
Subway: Any veggie sub on any bread except 9 Grain Wheat or Honey Oat (both contain honey.) Lose the cheese and mayo. Add avocado, mustards, oil and vinegar. Or get it as a wrap. Or get it as a salad. Don't eat the veggie patties. They have egg in them.
Quizno's: Veggie sub. Lose the cheese and mayo and load up on guacamole and oil/vinegar.
Taco Bell: Any Fresco style tacos or burritos. Lose the meat, cheese and sour cream. Substitute with beans and guacamole. The 7 Layer Burrito without the cheese or sour cream layers also is vegan.
McDonald's: Disregard completely. Don't look at the sign. I can't even write about it. Just don't ever eat there.
Burger King: You can have the fries because they are cooked in a separate fryer with no animal products. The onion rings you can't have, they are in an animal shared fryer. And don't eat the veggie burgers. They have egg in them.
Jack in the Box: Teriyaki Rice Bowls without meat. Tacos with black beans instead of meat and cheese. Fries and hash browns are in an animal free fryer so they are ok (except that they are greasy and really fattening.)
Carl's Jr.: You can have the fries or hash browns (if you don't mind the grease) or a taco salad without meat, cheese or sour cream.
Wendy's: Side and regular salads, though you'll have to pick off the meat and cheese and not use their cream dressings. Baked potatoes with just salt, pepper and chives.
Arby's: Seriously, where is there an Arby's?
Pizza Hut: The only vegan dough is the multigrain dough with NO sauce. Their sauce isn't vegan. So basically, the multigrain pizza, no sauce, no cheese, with veggies.
Domino's: The only vegan dough is the crunchy think crust but you can't have the sauce. The breadsticks are not vegan.
Papa John's: Won't publish their ingredients online. Too shady to eat at.
Baja Fresh: Tostada without meat, cheese or sour cream but with loads of salsa and guacamole. Veggie tacos or burritos without sour cream or cheese.
Chipotle: Anything you want sans cheese, sour cream and meat.
Del Taco: Veggie Works burrito sans sour cream and cheese.
Starbucks: Any soy drinks. And you can have flavors since they use syrups instead of powders!
Coffee Bean: Any soy drink but no flavors...they use powders with a milk base.
V-Note. Upper East Side. I would literally kill someone for their Caesar salad. I can't go to New York without going there at least once. I just got back from two days in the city and ate there both nights. And both nights, I had the Caesar. The only reason it's not pictured is because I also had too much wine to work a camera... Adding to their incredible food and wine, the owner was so sweet she sent me back to LA with a pint of dressing and her roasted capers so that I wouldn't go through sudden withdrawal. And the pint survived being tucked in a boot in my suitcase! The only reason my homemade salad isn't pictured is because I was too hungry to wait. I got problems.
Vegan because of a love for animals. Afraid of the kitchen because I grew up on Top Ramen. Basically, I've lived most of my life hangry. My goal is to show you how easy it is to live satisfied and cruelty free, one meal at a time.
