More Veg Dishes

This spring, vegans will have more options to choose from when dining out at many large chain restaurants. Popular chains such as Moe’s Southwest Grill and Hard Rock Café are adding veg options to their springtime menus, as more and more people participate in Meatless Mondays and the popularity of the plant-based lifestyle continues to rise.
