7 Restaurants Across Canada Offering Plant-Based Takeout

Did you know that the plant-based movement began with veganism, a way of living that aims to avoid animal harm for ethical reasons? It has expanded to include people who make dietary and lifestyle choices to minimize harm to the environment and their health.

Whether you have a dietary restriction, want to incorporate more fruits and veggies into your daily routine or simply just have a soft spot for animals, plant-based food is a growing trend that restaurants across Canada are embracing.

Ready to explore some plant-based takeout? We have 7 restaurants to get you started
