These are ready made meals that are often microwavable, or sometimes require a toaster oven (such as with the vegan burgers).
They are not all vegan, but again it is appreciated that they are very clear about their ingredients and are helpfully labeled when they are vegan.
If you click through you can even search based on identifiers such as “vegan” or “gluten free”. It is too few and far between that more ubiquitous companies provide such clarity and recognition of healthier and more food conscious points of view, so even if it isn’t truly a vegan company, it’s honesty and openness goes a long way. Because, again, I think that’s what we can all agree on, that we merely want to be Thoughtful Eaters, knowing what we are feeding ourselves and being fed.
It is my understanding that some of these are available on campus at RIT at the various cafeterias and convenience stores. Unfortunately I could not find a list of products from RIT about what their stores are stocked with, which I think would be an amazing help, and is not out of the question in our day and age and especially at a technical institute. Being able to see the entire stock listing and researching products on your own without having to go to the store and spend so much time reading labels and trying to figure out what that weird word is and worrying that if you buy it you’re gonna be eating something bizarre like the crushed up bones of dairy cows or something terrible.
I am trying though, and I’m sure I’ll get some help, to focus more on what’s available at RIT, what’s quick and easy to make for vegan meals, and even some recipes available with a microwave or without any cooking besides just ready made meals.
