Vegan and vegetarian diets have become popular in the last few years.
More and more people are changing their diets, which shows that approximately 78 million people of the entire world population have started an animal-free diet.
The reasons why people are changing to this new style of life are different. Some are looking to a healthy diet style, others are worried about the environment, and others just feel better eating this way.
Whatever the reason, in this article we’ll tell you 5 of the best places to visit around the world if you are a vegetarian or vegan. We will also share with you, which dishes or restaurants you should try whilst there.
According to Google trends, the United Kingdom is one of the countries where vegans have grown increasingly in the last years.
Around 7 million people in the UK are currently following a meat-free diet (finder.com) and the country is home to some of the most well known meatless companies.
Knowing this, it’s easy to think that if you plan to travel to the UK, you won’t find any problems finding plenty of choices when eating out.
There are many dishes to choose from, but according to one of the most popular takeaway apps, you can’t miss the Vegan Chicken Katsu Curry from Wagamama.
Israel is another country where being a vegan or vegetarian is easy.
The country has been so advanced compared to other countries in terms of having a non-meat diet. In 2013, Domino launched its first-ever vegan pizza, which has just started to become popular in other countries.
Apart from the beautiful beaches and nightlife that you can find in the country, you can delight yourself with some dishes such as Baba ganoush or their tasty Hummus.
Australia’s vegan market has been increasing over the last five years and has become the third-largest in the world.
Around 12% of their entire population is already vegan or vegetarian. The vegan packed food market has a value of approximately 130 Australian dollars.
Therefore, if you are a vegan or vegetarian tourist in Australia, you will enjoy a food feast for sure.
As Australia is a big country, we have done some research for you, and have found that the Sunshine Coast is where the real vegan paradise is.
Austria is one of the surprises of the article.
We all know the Austrian diet is full of meat and dairy products (heaven for cheese lovers). However, the interest of veganism has increased by around 9% over the last few years.
The country’s restaurants have adapted quickly, and it’s now effortless to find vegan or vegetarian options when eating out.
Austrian cuisine is well known in the old continent, but these days you can find (mostly) each of their local cuisines adapted to this trend. We would recommend giving a go to the meat-free version of the famous Schnitzel or Strudel!
Canada has also seen an increase in vegan interest in their society.
According to Google Trends, the search volume for Vegan as a concept has increased around 25% over the last few years.
The institutions are making a significant effort to make their population aware of the diet’s healthy style. This measure needs to include more vegan and vegetarian options among their food choices. The government has even invested in vegan protein development.
The data also shows that the most veggie area of the country in British Columbia is 40% of its population under 35 years old and vegetarian or vegan. Places like the rocky mountains or Vancouver are waiting for you in this state.
We hope we encourage you to keep your new diet habits and find someplace for your future travels. Don´t forget to share with us if you ever visit any of these locations!
