I am not a vegan, either, but I do eat very healthy food and mostly organic. Here's what I would suggest:
*Don't eat fast food, whatsoever. Think of it as poison, because it is! If you need convincing, read the book Fast Food Nation. You probably won't ever want your children touching the stuff again!
If we are pressed for time (or I really don't feel like cooking), it's canned organic soup (Amy's brand has a really great tomato soup and cream of mushroom soup), grilled cheese sandwiches (with soy cheese slices & whole wheat bread), and some organic baby carrots.
*Cut out the stuff with hydrogenated oils. Cookies, crackers, chips all have these kinds of oils. If you have a health food store or a health food section in your store, you should be able to find good alternatives. We have a Wild Oats down the street. I find their store brand to be pretty good and reasonably priced. I buy their brand of chips and crackers. Lundburg Family Farms makes good rice cakes from brown rice (healthier than white rice) in a variety of flavors, a great alternative to chips and they are something easy to take along with you when you are grabbing snacks. My family likes to spread peanut butter or hummus on the plain ones.
*String cheese is a good, healthy snack. Buy the organic kind. Horizon is a good brand.
*Buy organic produce. It is not that much more expensive. I find that often my produce at Wild Oats is better priced than the produce at Hen House and I know I am not getting the pesticides or GMOs.
*We have always put dry, organic cereal in baggies and added almonds or other healthy nuts and raisins. Good on the go snacks.
*One of my family's favorite snacks: carrots dipped in organic peanut butter.
*Sun Soy chocolate soy milk is a favorite at my house.
*Amy's Organic pocket sandwiches are great and easy. I take them to work for my lunch.
I haven't found a good organic graham cracker yet. If anyone knows of a good brand, let me know! Most of them taste pretty bad.
Good luck to you!
