15 More Deliciously Filling Vegan Lunches To Take To Work

I have always thought that whether you are vegan or not, lunch must be nutritious, filling, and meatless – something that fills you up with vital vitamins, minerals, and hydration to help you stay focused until the end of the work day, rather than make you sleepy and lazy!

Plus, if you are eating lunch at the workplace, it must bring you pleasure to the eye AND the taste buds – because who doesn’t need an hour of pure enjoyment in-between workweek tasks?

These tasty suggestions tick all the boxes for the perfect vegan lunch, and I think they are so good you’ll want to have the same for dinner (think of all this time you’ll be saving!).

Here are 15 delicious vegan lunches, ideal for brown-bagging to work!
