178871920copy-2An article on The Guardian spotlights the growing population of vegetarians and vegans in Spain.

According to the article, “Spanish people have a reputation as diehard meat eaters. But in recent years, as the number of vegan or vegetarian restaurants in Spain has doubled, there are signs of change.” The author continues, “The idea that we should, at the very least, eat less meat is increasingly common in Spain, as in many other parts of Europe.”

The feature also cites an incredibly popular Spanish vegan festival as a sign of the times, bringing in over 5,000 attendees and showcasing foods like muffins, chutneys, and smoothies.

This all comes on the heels of new research revealing that a whopping one in eight British adults now follows a vegetarian or vegan diet, and the historic change in the Indian city of Palitana, which has become the first all-vegetarian city in the world.

With more and more people moving away from meat, there’s never been a better time to add more vegetarian foods to your diet. For tips and simple meal ideas, check out ChooseVeg.com.
