There are many restaurants developing across the nation that have strictly vegan or vegetarian menus as more and more Americans take steps toward incorporating a plant based diet to their daily lives.
According to the "Vegetarianism in America" study published by Vegetarian Times, 7.3 million people, follow a vegetarian-based diet, and 1 million, of those are vegans who consume no animal products at all. The study also revealed that 22.8 million people say they largely follow a vegetarian-inclined diet.
This is why restaurants like Veggie Grill are so vital and very much needed! Veggie Grill prides itself in being a meat-free zone. The website proudly boasts, "All of our menu items are free of meat, dairy, eggs and other animal products, and therefore, contain no antibiotics and hormones."
It also includes mouth-watering menu items like Chargrilled Veggie Penne, Fresh Asparagus Soup, and Mondo Nachos all made from organic, non-GMO ingredients. Did I mention that all menu items are meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free and contain no antibiotics or hormones?
Right now there are 29 locations around California, Washington, and Oregon, but the rapidly expanding chain is strategically considering areas like Dallas, Denver, Atlanta, and Miami as well.
Let's hope they get to the ATL very soon! How do you think a restaurant chain like Veggie Grill would impact Atlanta? Sound off!
