One of the most challenging things about college life is being able to eat properly and continuing to follow your normal diet. Nevertheless, it can be especially challenging for those who follow a gluten free, lactose free, and meat free diet. Whether you fall among any of these diets or you know someone who does, you may be aware of how hard it can be to find a variety of vegan options on campus or even at nearby stores.
Even though vegans are usually very good at coming up with plant based snacks and recipes, you should not allow yourself or the vegan in your life to restrict themselves to what they can find on campus or at the nearest grocery store. This is why care packages are the perfect solution for making sure that you and your vegan friend are being taken care of. There is nothing better than receiving a package filled with delicious snacks or even meals. A care package can make anyone feel loved and appreciated which are crucial things when you have your head deep in assignments and barely have time to look after yourself.
