Veganism Around the World and in Your Neighborhood

OK—let’s get one thing straight. Vegans love food. From the minute we wake up, we’re thinking snacks … well most of us are. That’s why it’s so ironic that flesh lovers throw the “but I like to EAT!” nonsense at us so frequently.

Believe me, if there is one thing I’ve learned since going vegan, it’s that when you’re dousing everything in cheese, sour cream, and animal fat, you’re really not tasting anything else. Veganism opens up limitless opportunities to actually taste something (other than cholesterol and fat) when you sit down to eat and that is why so many of us are bona fide foodies. The best part? No one dies for our plate … so there’s no guilt!

From Indian food, to Thai food, Middle Eastern food, Mexican Food, Italian Food, or Chinese food, veganism is even easier when you’re eating out. If you’re used to the plain old veggie burger with fries, we’re here to help! For the next several months, we’ll be featuring deeeelicious international and diverse foods, restaurants, and recipes that will help you realize that veganism is good for your tastebuds (and the animals, too!).

Tomorrow we’ll begin with Middle Eastern food—stay tuned!

What’s your favorite international food?

    Gimme this food! Looks so yummy.
    I’d like to go vegan but where I live (france) it’s really hard or impossible to find some products and if you, they’re freaking expensive! Can’t afford that luxury as a student.
    Plus, milk and eggs are a basis in our food culture. Hard to get rid of them.#justsayin

    All food is good! I could not live on just American food or just Swedish food (mom is Swedish), there is a world of interesting food out there and I love (almost) all of it!

    It’s gotta be Indian food – but not the rubbish you get at take-aways, the *real* food you can only get at traditional family-run Indian restaurants.
