We always look forward to World Vegetarian Day; at tastecard we just love our veggies! This year, on 1 October 2018, you can celebrate being vegetarian or loving vegetarian food for the special 24 hours that is World Vegetarian Day.
You won’t be alone either as recent surveys have shown the huge growth in the popularity of vegetarian food and vegetarian restaurants in the UK. More than a quarter of all evening meals in the UK are now vegetarian or vegan and more than 3.5 million British people now identify as vegetarians. But what are the benefits of eating more vegetarian meals, even if it’s just for World Vegetarian Day?
Benefit from Our Great Vegetarian Restaurant Savings
Eating more vegetarian meals is, of course, very healthy for your wallet when you have a tastecard but it’s very healthy, full stop. Scientific studies have shown that vegetarians are less prone to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and other health problems than regular meat-eaters.
Even if you don’t want to eat vegetarian any other time than World Vegetarian Day, you can explore all the varied vegan and vegetarian restaurant options our dining club offers. Go on, eat meat-free for the day and try out new dishes at your local vegetarian restaurant or order off the vegetarian menu at your favourite chain restaurant.
Eating veggies is never expensive when you have a tastecard so treat your friends to some vegetarian food with our 2 for 1 deals or 50% off food savings. What better day to eat out at a vegetarian restaurant than World Vegetarian Day 2018? Let us know how you’re celebrating World Vegetarian Day by uploading your photos to Instagram and tagging @tastecard.
Your Favourite Cuisines with Amazing Vegetarian Options
tastecard has a bewildering range of world cuisines for you to try but what food cultures have the best vegetarian cuisine?
You could go for some Greek or Turkish vegetarian mezes or Chinese restaurants serve a range of tasty tofu dishes. Indian restaurants are a huge favourite with our members and Indian food is full of great vegetarian meals from the chickpea curry, chana masala, to saag aloo, a spinach and potato curry. If you prefer Italian food, our popular restaurant chains offer fantastic vegetarian options on their menus from delicious vegan pizzas to veggie pastas and salads.
Mexican cuisine can also be a great vegetarian choice. Just think of a hot burrito filled with beans and guacamole or imagine spicy tacos with vegetables and rice.
