Since many people are changing their diet in order to be healthier, we have seen the demand for vegan food skyrocket. So if you’re a vegan or want to consider vegan options, here is a list of places that are either exclusively vegan or have vegan friendly options on their menu.
Before we jump into it, what exactly does being vegan mean? It’s when you exclude meat and all animal products from your meals because being animal friendly is one of the main ideas behind it. For example, you don’t eat meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products. Alternatively, vegans rely on plant-based foods such as fruits, veggies, grains, beans, nuts, and seeds.
