Vegan MoFo Day 14: The last known survivor stalks his prey in the night...

And he's watching us all with the EEEYYYYYYYE, of the tiger.

Ahem, sorry.  Was trying to think of songs with Survivor in the title.  Sorry Destiny's Child - Eye of the Tiger out-awesomed you!

So, survival.  I'm talking surviving being onsite in a crap hotel for work.  Generally I struggle onsite and end up eating cereal in my room in the morning and living on hummus sandwiches or PB&J.  Sometimes, I'm not even that lucky so I bring some provisions with me.


My provisions include: some longlife soymilk, some cereal packets, snack a jacks, some cup a soups*, peanut butter, some vitalite, cookies that I made (see yesterday's post), some earl grey tea bags and of course - NOOCH.  I couldn't go the weekend without this.  After 2 nights of gross pot noodles and crisps for dinner I am wishing I bought some Smash with me!!

*The soups - I found these at Morrisons.  They have a new range out called NuMe or some crap, which seems to be lower fat stuff. They have about 5 flavours of cup a soup and at least 3 of them look to be vegan.  This is unusual as most cup a soups, even own brands, I've found have milk in them.  Bad news is, I tried the pea & mint ones last night and they were vile.


Just in case you didn't already think eye of the tiger was awesome, you will now... best outtake EVER!

  2. I'm with you on the travel nooch. I didn't take it on a trip to my in-laws' once and ended up with the blandest scramble ever.

  3. Ha! When I saw the title of your post I knew you were going to link to that outtake! :D

    Too bad about the vile soup. Why would they even bother selling such crap?

  4. I need to get back to this post next time I am in a hotel. Every time I want to have breakfast at a hotel I am shocked that they still don't have soymilk.

  5. Oooh good news about those cuppa-soups. I'll sniff them out next time I'm in Blighty.

  6. I can't speak for the other flavours but the pea & mint ones were absolutely gross. I binned the rest of the box!

  7. Ha ha I take nooch away with me too! A couple of good instant things I've found are those Heinz soups in a little tube. Some of them are vegan. It's a puree you add boiling water to and the Food Doctor Healthy Pot Noodle things that are actually couscous and bulgar wheat. I've only seen them in Tesco so far but they're quite often on offer for a pound.
