- Vegetarianism continues to rise. As reported by Statistic Brain in Oct. 2012, 7.3 million Americans said they are strictly vegetarian (no meat, fish, or poultry), and 1 million reported being strictly vegan. Another 23 million reported following a vegetarian-inclined diet. One of the top 10 food trends of 2013 is vegetables as main dishes, according to The Sterling-Rice Group.
- Veganism is exploding. Mainstream restaurant chains are now offering vegan options on their menus; celebrities (Ellen DeGeneres, Carrie Underwood, Ozzy Osbourne, Russell Brand) have abandoned eating meat and dairy; vegan-only food trucks have started appearing in cities like Miami, Denver, Dallas, and Vancouver; and media outlets and stars (Oprah Winfrey and Martha Stewart among them) continue to bring national attention to the topic.
