You’ve had the weekend planned out for days now: Your best friend is having a slumber party, and you’re super-excited. Everything has been decided, from which pajamas you’ll wear to which games you’ll play. What’s that, though? You’re a little nervous because your friends aren’t vegan and you’re sure that there won’t be anything for you to eat? Don’t worry! We’ve all been there, and it’s no biggie. Just pack a few extra items in your overnight bag, and everything will go smoothly.
Here are some animal-friendly suggestions to pack for the evening:
Bring your own snacks! Popcorn, Clif Bars, Sour Patch Kids, and Oreos are all yummy options. Plus, they’re so delish that your friends might even ask you to share. Most sodas are also vegan. Do you like Coke, Sprite, or root beer? Guess what? They’re all accidentally vegan.
There are tons of movies that don’t exploit animals. Bring one with you! Blackfish is streaming on Netflix right now, or check out our list of animal-friendly movies for other great options.
If you and your friends love nail polish, bring along your fave cruelty-free picks. NYX makes awesome polish colors that are fun and vibrant.
Your friends are probably kind enough to order vegetarian pizza, but maybe they’re not willing to try vegan pizza. That being said, it might be a good idea to bring your own frozen pizza. Pick up Amy’s brand Vegan Margherita Pizza.
Breakfast is simple! All fruits are vegan, and if you want something to go along with your fruit, pack some soy or coconut milk yogurt.
There you have it! Just bring along a few items that you probably already have, and your slumber party will be a blast!
