Veganism has, over the years, become a highly tried-out food diet, not only due to its benefits to a person’s overall health but also due to its role in helping protect the environment. Many have the misconception that veganism is all about cutting out a few items in a diet plan, but it is not the case and is now a lifestyle that many choose to partake in. With many opting for it and making the switch, the biggest issue faced is the lack of restaurants to dine at, with restaurants serving a limited number of dishes catering to the lifestyle.
