Why India is the best travel destination for vegans?
It’s extremely challenging to follow a vegan diet while traveling to a foreign place. At times, people have to travel extra miles to get a vegan meal, especially in cold regions. In cold countries like Russia, people scarcely follow the vegan lifestyle as they need high-energy fatty food to fulfill their energy requirements. Contrarily, in India with adequate availability of solar energy and vegetables, almost 30% of people are vegetarians.
Moreover, India is a land with the highest degree of virtue and faith. It directly impacts the eating habits of the people. A great number of people are not only vegetarians but vegans. Hence, a wide variety of
vegan food is available in India in every state. In case some vegetarian food is not vegan, it can easily be veganized by using dairy substitutes. Interestingly, Indians use a lot of ghee in most of the delicacies but
you can ask the chef to replace it with coconut oil or mustard oil while maintaining the authenticity in the taste.
Further, you can get a wide variety of mouth-watering vegan food which is not only healthy but also delicious. Most of the curries are made with lentils and a lot of herbs and spices which makes it delectable. Apart from imparting blissful taste, the spices also serve as antioxidants.
India is one of the cheapest countries to travel to in the world. You can have a 100% vegan meal from the street vendors for less than a dollar. Also, the vegan platters are available in the restaurants at comparatively low prices. Unlike other countries, it offers vegetarian meals at much cheaper rates than meat dishes. Though many Bollywood celebs like Anushka Sharma and Alia Bhatt follow veganism still it’s a lesser- known concept in India. However, you can go to pure vegetarian restaurants and tell them you’ve
