Veganism in Dubai
Dubai has been known as a tourist destination for quite some time now. The city caters to a large audience, which means that in order to be a tourist-friendly city, there has to be a variety of options people can choose from – be it food, shopping, attractions, and more.
In terms of Veganism, ever since the lockdown last year (due to COVID-19) – numerous stores and companies such as – Kibsons, BiOrganic, Koita Foods, Carrefour, LuLu, Coco Yogo, and Fazenda Futuro, have found a special place among vegans because of their wide range of produce.
In addition to this, local restaurants and franchises (such as Burger King and Papa Johns) in Dubai, now offer diners an assortment of vegan options to choose from as well. Swedish-founded, Dutch multinational company IKEA, also features vegan options in their menu.
Benefits of eating vegan
Veganism features plant-based options and aids to several health benefits, most of which (as listed by PETA) include:
Rich in the nutrients needed for your body,
helps reduce the risk of suffering from cancer and other diseases,
vegan food can boost your mood,
helps achieve a healthy body weight,
can help prevent type 2 diabetes,
skin benefits, and
can reduce the pain of arthritis.
While veganism does offer these benefits, it is more of a lifestyle choice rather than a dietary one. On that note, head over to these 10 restaurants, indulge in these tasty offerings, and pick a favourite out of the lot.
