How being vegan is getting easier and easier
Tuesday 22nd May 2018 |
In the UK, the number of people identifying as vegans has increased by 350%, compared to a decade ago according to research commissioned by the Vegan Society in partnership with Vegan Life magazine.
Indeed, for some time already, many people have decided to turn vegan, eating and consuming a plant-based diet and buying cruelty-free items.
They favour a healthier lifestyle as a response to the growing danger that our way of consuming and producing is harming the environment and its inhabitants, both humans and animals.
The vegan movement boom may be explained by the fact that the internet has made the spreading of ideas easier than it used to be. It's also much easier to buy items on the internet, which permit vegans to consume interesting non-mainstream products in accordance with their ethical values.
If being vegetarian or vegan was a struggle only a few years ago, and enjoying a varied diet with the nutrition that carnivores enjoy was kind of a challenge in terms of money, practicality and creativity, it seems like it has become much easier today for our vegan friends!
The transition towards a healthier and more respectful lifestyle seems to be happening. Nowadays, not only a great majority of restaurants have introduced great tasting vegetarian and vegan options to their menu but there are now a rising number of exclusively vegan places to eat, especially in big cities like London.
Vegans can eat fast food as quickly as carnivores would when munching a hamburger, only that the traditional beef steak is now replaced by vegetable patties or falafels!
Vegan fast-food spots like PilPel are flourishing everywhere in the city. They now have sox restaurants in London! People seem to love not just the speed of the service but they say they are the greatest falafels in the universe! Meat eaters say the falafel in pitta bread is THE dish that could help them turn vegetarian! They can eat cheap, fast, healthy and respectfully.
In short, 2018 is a great time to be vegan and especially in London!
