The health and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet have seen a steep rise in people changing their eating habits. Menus are now becoming flooded with the colour, creativity and imagination that have long been the norm for vegetarians and vegans.

Forget the old clichés about chips; vegan and vegetarian diets are a wonderful way to sample food from across the world while easily putting away your five-a-day. It is estimated that as many as 350,000 people took part in Veganuary, turning their back on animals products for the month.

No longer a token nod to vegetarians with one or two meat-free dishes, restaurants and food stores have embraced the trend and catered accordingly. And Marriotts Walk is no exception with the shopping centre offering an excellent choice of food for vegetarians and vegans.

Vegan and vegetarian trends for 2020

There has been an explosion in food trends centred on the vegan diet with foods such as jackfruit, cauliflower and avocado taking centre stage,

This year it looks likely that more diverse options for meat substitutes will continue to be unveiled in the search for allergy-friendly options, which means more pea and mushroom-based recipes instead of soya.

Sea vegetables are also likely to become more popular, along with a much wider choice of flours used in baking.

The vegan diet is linked to eco-living and a healthy lifestyle, which means that food is more likely to come in sustainable packaging and be mindful of good sources of nutrition.
