VEGANISM ON YOUR MIND?
Plan to follow in Sonam Kapoor’s footsteps and turn vegan? Here’s all you need to know about veganism
From fully-fledged vegan restaurants to vegan ice cream parlours, there are a number of international options available for those who wish to convert to veganism. Amrita Gokal who is a 22-year-old student, became a vegan while she was studying in London, UK. “Supermarkets in London have a section for vegans. It was easy to find vegan restaurants too. But when I returned to India, the options became limited. So, I couldn’t do it (stay vegan) anymore,” says Gokal.
However, the concept is now making its way into the menus of eateries in metropolitan cities. Syesha Kapoor, co-owner, Boveda Bistro, Mumbai, seconds the thought. “A large number of people are inquisitive, but restaurants that serve only vegan food are not feasible at the moment,” says Kapoor.
Samir Prasad, who owns a vegan tiffin and delivery service, called Vegan Bites, says he caters to 250 vegans around the city daily.
Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor’s decision to turn vegan recently has drawn attention to the diet once again. Those who are considering adopting a life devoid of milk products and meat need to look no further. Here’s everything you need to know to get started.
