$5 Footlong and Cake Mix Cookies!

When you're lazy and don't want to cook or spend a ton of money on lunch, take advantage of the $5 sandwich deal at Subway. If you're a vegan, you can easily get a mouthwatering "Veggie Delite" sub stuffed with every vegetable they offer. Make sure you get white italian bread as it's the only bread that's vegan. Also skip the cheese and mayo. Mine has lettuce, tomato, red onions, olives, green peppers, cucumber, spinach, avocado, pepperoncini, jalapenos, mustard and oil and vinegar. I ate half of this for lunch and will have the other half for dinner.

Ok, get ready for a junk food alert! If you're in the mood for quick junk-foody cookies, look no further than a box of Duncan Hines cake mix. I got the idea and recipe for these cookies from Vegan Guinea Pig.

The plain ones on the left were my first batch. They were dropped by rounded TB on a cookies sheet and baked up kind of puffy looking. The frosted ones were rolled in a ball and flattened between my palms and baked up more cookie-like. The frosting is Duncan Hines Chocolate Fudge. As sweet and cute as these cookies are, I will most likely stick to homemade "from-scratch" cookies next time as they are not full of processed ingredients as these are. But if you want a quick sugar fix and all you have in your pantry is a box of cake mix, give them a try!

WHAT. Your subway has all those veggies, or did you supplement it when you got home. Avocado?! My subway doesn't even have spinach anymore!

Yes they do. That sucks that your Subway lacks some of the veggies!! I heard recently that avocado must be a California thing. I did not know that. Sorry!!!!

Subway over here doesn't have Spinach OR Avocado!!
I know that Australian Subways have Avocado.
I LOVE those Cookies - the sprinkles are just soooo pretty.

I really hate how the only bread you can get at Subway is white bread, oh well, does in a pinch!

I had no idea about the cake mix being vegan, but I suppose that makes sense as you ADD the non-vegan ingredients to the mix. Great idea!

You have the very best Subway, no doubt.
