Vegan-ish Subway Order

Meatball marinara used to be my go-to Subway order, but obviously that's out the door now. While out and about today I was getting hungry, and didn't want to wait to get home to eat. But I wasn't really sure where to go since my recent decision not to visit McDonalds anymore. Luckily, as I was driving, I remembered a Subway was close. Yum! Obviously, my choice was the veggie delight sandwich. Since I'm not the type who loves all kinds of vegetables (green peppers and black olives? No way!), and I've never had an all veggie sandwich before, I wasn't sure how I'd like it. Turns out, it can be super delicious!
So here is my recipe for the perfect Subway veggie delight:

  • 9 grain honey oat bun (toasted) 
  • lettuce 
  • tomato
  • spinach 
  • onion (not toasted) 
  • guacamole 
  • sauce of your choice! 
Today I got ranch on my sandwich. I just looked it up, and it turns out Subway's recipe has both egg and milk in it. Whoops. Oh well, that's why it's a vegan-ish diet, and the sandwich still counts as vegetarian. Still, next time I'll just stick with honey mustard.

The Mascara Problem

As someone who is very blonde, I will never recommend giving up mascara, but as of yet I have not found a good plastic free alternative. Instead, I've come up with a compromise that works for me. It reduces my plastic consumption without forcing me to give up my favorite makeup tool.

Here's how it goes: On special occasions, important days, and those times I just feel like looking extra good, I go ahead and use mascara. On the day to day, just school and work, I skip it in favor of an eyeliner and eyelash curler combo.

After using both the eyeliner and the eyelash curler, I get a similar emphasis around the eye that looks perfectly fine for casual days. It uses less plastic, and still looks good.

Opt Out

The other day, I went to Subway and saw this:

A fast food chain actively trying to reduce their waste? AND encouraging people to use less plastic bags? Heck yes!  However, I'm always sceptical of brands trying to 'greenwash' products. Making the salad bowls and napkins out of recycled materials is a great place to start, but if Subway really wants to make a difference, there's an important step they need to take. While it's great they have a poster saying to go bagless, there's a much easier way to get people to do so: don't hand them one.

Face it, we tend to take the path of least resistance. If it takes work to opt out of a plastic bag, odds are most people will take it just because they don't remember to say something, they feel embarrassed, or any other number of reasons. If Subway, or any cooperation for that matter, wanted to make a big difference, they could switch to an opt in system. Subway sandwiches could come without a bag. Still have them o…
