Chicago’s Veggie Fest Popular Among Omnivores

The Windy City’s plant-based food festival shows that meat eaters have taken an avid interest in vegetarian cooking for health reasons.

Meatless meals are becoming increasingly popular among the omnivorous crowd due to its ability to bolster physical well-being and assist with weight loss. Foxnews.com took note of this trend in a frontline article on Chicago’s eighth annual Veggie Fest, which was inundated with omnivorous eaters looking to get healthy and tip the scales in the right direction. The news source interviewed several meat-eating festival-goers who said that their newfound healthful proclivities made them want to eat more vegetables and attempt to cut down their meat intake. Many of these people were attending the plant-based festival for educational reasons so they could learn to prepare delicious dishes that would satiate their taste buds, but not expand their waistlines.
