Vegan Eating is in the Spotlight

Vegan is en vogue. Literally! Here, fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue highlights a vegan pop tart recipe from Rawcells, calling it a “healthier version” of the well-known toaster treat, and adding that “one look at Rawcells’s Instagram page” just might convince you to go vegan!

Other publications are putting plants on their pages (digital or otherwise) too. SELF just posted four vegan recipes from Chef Chloe Coscarelli, calling her “the hottest vegan chef in N.Y.C. and L.A.”

And Coscarelli’s restaurant, by Chloe, like many other veg eateries, is reaching not only the vegan consumer base but the ever-growing number of omnivorous diners who are looking for healthier and kinder foods; Co-Founder Samantha Wasser told SELF: “Really, 90 percent of our customers aren’t vegan.”

Vegetarian foods might not come to mind when you think of Taco Bell and other fast food joints, but could you have imagined even just a decade ago that, according to POPSUGAR, there are a whopping 5,700,000 vegetarian combinations that can be ordered at Taco Bell?

There is no disputing that plant-based options are sprouting up everywhere. Almost anywhere you go, you can find vegetarian, vegan or easily veganizable meals these days.

Even food industry insiders have called plant-based eats the hottest new trend in fast-casual food! Veggie foods are flying off the grocery shelves too: the meat substitutes market is projected to reach $5.17 billion by 2020.

From Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks, to Subway and Ben & Jerry’s, major chains are responding to the growing demand for foods that leave animals off our plates. And as consumers, we have the power to choose compassion with every meal or purchase.
