Calling all vegetarians — and those who want to give it a try. It’s Veg Week: a nationwide campaign empowering thousands of people to choose vegetarian foods for at least seven days as a way to discover the many benefits and flavors of vegetarian eating.
“Every time we choose a meat-free meal, we can protect our health, the planet, and animals,” states the Veg Week website. Luckily, we live in one of the most vegetarian- and vegan-friendly cities in the U.S. So we’ve rounded up some of our favorite foodie spots around Austin to get your veg on, from the tried and true to new kids on the block, plus some you might not think of for a plant-based meal.
