Plant-Based Options at Fast Food Restaurants: Not Suitable for Vegans?

Share this:

Plant-based options are exploding in such fast food restaurants as Burger King, KFC, Carl’s Jr., and White Castle as well as fast casual restaurants like Chipotle, Pizza Hut, and Panda Express. And the research shows it’s leading to a reduction in the amount of purchases of animal-based meat. Some see this as a win for animals and people, but some see it differently.

Listen to this episode of Food for Thought for my take on this growing trend, and why I blame McDonald’s for not graduating high school with my senior class.
