I was working in an office and wanted to avoid making the usual packed lunch fayre of sandwiches and crisps: monotonous and of questionable nutritional quality and not the sort of thing to look forward to after a stressful/hectic/dull/quiet morning in the office (delete as appropriate)
I began making my own salads – not just salads with the usual bag of mixed leaves, but salads with seasonal vegetables and with different grains and seeds. Salads that were interesting and filling, that weren’t just for people on diets – after all, being healthy is good for everyone.
People would always admire my salads and even ask if I could bring in extra for them. Thus, Vegemental was born to make my lunches available to others.
