Vegan & Vegetarian Fast Food Options

Something vegans know that other people don’t is that not all vegan food is healthy. Sometimes, eating out is more practical when time constraints come into play. While meal prepping and ready-to-consume products exist just for such an occasion, humans make mistakes. So what can you eat when you can’t eat most things?

Once, I mentioned Baker’s (a Southern California restaurant chain) being vegetarian friendly for the past few decades, long before the competition. Only recently have other fast food chains decided to start including alternatives to herbivores. While small chains with better options exist, this article aims to generalize the subject just a little.
