In the past, a few terms such as vegan, sustainable and zero-waste were only seen as transient trends. Fast forward to today, these have become an inseparable part of many people’s lives, especially veganism.
Veganism as a lifestyle is free of any meat, animal-derived and dairy-based products. Last week, actress Bhumi Pednekar too joined celebrity vegetarian and vegan bandwagon that includes Sonam Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Virat Kohli and Kangana Ranaut. She declared her decision of giving up non-vegetarian diet on Instagram.
While some restaurants across India are generously offering lip-smacking dishes on their menu, alongside veg and non-veg options, there are also a few outlets that are solely for vegan dieters.
