Bye-Bye Beef: Restaurants Offering More Veg Options

An article on Main highlights a decrease in American beef consumption as well as a growing market for vegetarian options at chains like Chipotle and White Castle.

According to the author, “The new options come as Washington and the United Nations are pushing plant-based diets to save the environment and lower health care costs. The restaurant chains, however, say they’re just answering consumer demand with new products, not letting bureaucrats lead them by the nose.

The author also explains that millenials have been at the forefront of this growing demand, actively expressing an interest in plant-based options, whether they’re strictly veg or not.
