Eating In: Stir-Fries, Sandwiches, Salads

Some more delivered or taken away foods that I ate.

When scouring all the restaurants on delivery apps for vegan options, I came across Kingsfood Chinese Restaurant, which helpfully has a few options clearly marked vegan. I got the tofu and veggies with rice as my first offering, which was lovely. The next time I sampled some of the vegan spring rolls (which were pretty much your standard spring roll), and I got the Combination Vegetarian Delight in Garlic Sauce. I was feeling like a whole bunch of veggies, and this was just a whole bunch of veggies and mushrooms. Though unfortunately it was super oily, which was sad.

One day I had to get petrol on my way from somewhere to somewhere, and I knew I needed to get something to eat. 7-Eleven now has a range of vegan options in their grab and go cases! They have a vegan pie, vegan sausage roll, falafel and salad wrap, vegan chicken salad sandwich, and a vegan egg salad sandwich. I went for the egg salad sandwich, which had a really nice tofu and mayo filling and crunchy lettuce. The only thing was it lacks a little in flavour, I would have loved some mustard on it.

Swinging by my beloved The Green Edge as I moved between clinics, I was sad to see that their grab and go fridge was devoid of their chicken caesar salad, and the only wraps in there had sweet chilli sauce in them. So I ended up ordering a salad wrap, minus the capsicum, add in some crispy chicken, to go. As I had to wait a little bit for it to be ready, I ended up spending a bit of time browsing and buying some fun things that you will see in upcoming Midweek Munchies posts!

The Green Edge recently closed for a couple of weeks for renovations, I am super excited to see what they have done with the place. But it happened to be one of those times I needed to get lunch between clinics. So I popped by Botanica, an fancy all vegetarian salad place that always has vegan options and is just around the corner from work. I got a small box, which was enough for lunch and dinner. They pack it full and it is filling! I got the roasted carrot and quinoa salad with tahini dressing, the raw broccoli cashew and cranberry salad, and the rice, pumpkin, spinach, and soy salad. I've had these salads before, and they are all great. I just have to remember in future though that even though the salad tastes amazing, my guts do not enjoy a lot of raw broccoli! I also got a juice from their cabinent, and one of their vegan brownies.

I am typing this post three hours before we are going in to get her bladder masses needle aspirated, though it will still be a few days until we have any results.


  1. The 7-Eleven vegan options sound nice!

    Sorry your veggies were oily. But that is amazing news about 7-Eleven!
