Veganuary Meal Plan: Week 4
Three weeks in. You’re on the home straight, and if you haven’t been tempted to cave in at least once by now, you’re doing better than most of us… This is an SOS week, all about helping out with any cravings you might be having — including the recipe for a giant cookie that can be eaten straight out of the tin, our very best comfort food recipes and tips for where to get your vegan fast food fix.
If your sweet tooth is tempting you…
We covered the best plant based chocolates last week, but if it’s ice cream that’s calling your name we get it, so we’ve put together a round up of the best vegan ice creams in the market. I don’t know about you, but we think our giant cookie recipe has Ben and Jerry’s vegan peanut butter & cookies ice cream written all over.
If it’s pick and mix you’ve been thinking about at night, head here for the ultimate plant based sweets guide and here for our favourite vegan sweet treats — including (but definitely not limited to) fudge, peanut butter cups and marshmallows.
If all you want is a trip to the golden arches…
Before you head out the door, read our guide to our favourite fast food options which will cover all of your burger, fried chicken, pizza, sausage roll and takeaway needs. If you’re after a more in depth guide of the restaurant food scene where you live, head to this collection of restaurant guides of over 14 cities in the UK or have a read of this round up of the best vegan food in the UK. And for when you’re dreaming of a quick trip to the drive-thru, let’s not forget that Mcdonald's now has a vegan burger (yum).
Below you’ll find a collection of our most comforting and satisfying recipes, which include a combination of cheesy and melty recipes like toasties and pizza, meatier options like bolognese and nachos, and fakeaways like pad thai and bao buns. This week has nothing on you.
