43 Plant-Based Foods

From Plant-Based Pizzerias to Vegan Grain Burgers

— January 20, 2016 — Lifestyle
Vegetarian and vegan diets are becoming even more popular than before with a variety of different consumers, which has created an increased demand for plant-based foods. Being that many consumers are looking for the healthiest, most delicious way to get their nutrition, plant-based foods are being praised for their multitude of benefits.

While food that's plant-based is certainly not a new innovation, the way that brands and consumers are switching up perceptions and recipes to infuse plants in different ways are making waves. Everything from cheese, to burgers are becoming plant-based as consumers look for more eco-friendly ways to live their lives.

As more consumers become concerned about the environment affects of the animal food market, we could continue to see an increase in the number switching to plant-based alternatives.
