It used to be tricky to find vegan restaurants, but thanks to vegan chains like these, finding vegan food is getting easier and easier.
When Chipotle added vegan sofritos to its menu, that was pretty yummy news (as was its recent announcement that its menu is now mostly GMO-free, too). But the chain still serves meat. It pretty much means you have to grab your vegan sofritos or black bean burrito and hightail it out of the restaurant to avoid watching people chow down on chicken, pork and beef, save you ruin your appetite.
I spent a lot of time in Manhattan, but I’m not ready to leave New York without looking into the delicious, healthy, vegan eats available across the East River in Brooklyn!
Located in the heart of the San Ramon Valley, just a quick jaunt from San Francisco, is a great little town called Danville. Peaceful, scenic and full of great American west history, Danville is a perfect place for history geeks to slip away from the city for a tasty meal and take in some fun shopping, parks and museums. There’s also plenty of delicious vegan food in Danville! Here are a few of my faves.
Arizona – the southwestern desert state – is home to the Grand Canyon. The largest city in the state, Phoenix, is a growing capital boasting its own baseball team, great outdoor activities and yes, a growing vegan population. I was stoked to see the great variety of healthy, vegan places to dine in and around Phoenix and I know you will too!!
Close to the Tennessee River and not far from the state university, Huntsville is a nice community filled with a ton of aerospace brainiacs, rich history and some great vegan food options!
Chattanooga is a beautiful scenic city! With destinations like Lookout Mountain and its proximity to the Appalachians, there is a lot to do and see in and around the Dynamo of Dixie. But most importantly, there is some awesome vegan, gluten free and overall healthy grub!
My hometown of Miami is finally getting on a healthier kick! And I have to say, it was worth the wait! With a plethora of healthy, vegan and even raw places to dine, Miami is definitely becoming a force to be reckoned with in the veg world.
Seattle, the Pacific Northwest’s Emerald City. Home of the Space Needle and Public Market as well as the birthplace of grunge music and Starbucks. This city by the sound is beautiful, lush and a hub for delicious eats. It’s a bustling town of hip and young folks and families who have built a green and veg-friendly metropolis.
I went to Prague last weekend with my partner, Marika, as she had a couple days off and I had never been there before. Of course, any time we visit a new city, especially a global city like Prague, we love to scout out some good vegetarian restaurants and health food stores and try out some new food. (You might even say it’s one of our main aims.)
