One in ten people in Sweden is a vegetarian or vegan, a survey has found.
Time to go to Sweden.
This looks like a totally amazing salad. Head on over to Bryanna’s blog and check it out. Maybe I should make this for lunch next week.
<p>Vegan cooking doesn’t have to be hard with the right tools. Here’s a list of 5 to get you started on easier vegan cooking in no time.</p>
Totally agree! Esp. numbers 2 and 3.
Alfalfa, grown for Asian cattle, is worsening California’s drought.
So relevant right now.
Butter somehow finds its way into everything….
I have not been to the majority of these places, but I disagree with S. Korea. I went to Seoul as a vegan, and it was perfectly fine. I didn’t even speak Korean at the time. There are a lot of veg/vegan restaurants, and also a lot of non-Korean restaurants that will have your normal vegan fare. Seoul is a giant city, of course, so that probably has something to do with it. (Also… just take out the egg in Bibimbop or ask for it without it. There is no rule that says you have to eat the egg…) I also agree with the Texas person in the comments, and, as a Midwesterner, can attest that if you’re in a fairly large city in the Midwest you’re going to have vegan options. (Even Columbus, OH, ya’ll.)
Props to the president of the French vegan society in the comments!
And lastly, I am really disappointed in all the anti-vegan rhetoric in the comments. Whether you agree with the article or not, it was just outlining places that might be difficult for vegans to visit. Yet people in the comments somehow turned it into a weird blame game. May I also add that vegans exist all around the world,* so I don’t understand why the commenters apparently think vegans don’t exist in the named countries.
*I found vegan sources in Seoul due to a Korean person’s vegan food blog, and she often blogs about the vegan scene there. Don’t tell me there aren’t vegans in SK.
Sometimes it’s difficult to travel in foreign countries as a vegan, I get it. But the article acts like Happy Cow, travel guides, and internet research don’t exist. And to certain non-vegans — accept that some people have dietary restrictions. No one’s forcing you to be vegan when you travel, so why act like we’re the bad guy?
