According to him, since all of his band members are all vegetarian, ‘they don’t sacrifice goats anymore before any gigs, but just tofu instead’.

Gone are the days when the word veganism is conjured up with images of hippies. Now, because of the celebrities who advocate this diet, veganism has suddenly become a lifestyle and even a health trend. Some of the celebs who joined the bandwagon are Beyonce and Jay Z, Ellen and Portia and many others.

Inspired by them? Why not follow their lead? However, before switching to this animal-free diet, you should consult a dietician and doctor first to know the diet plans that fits your requirements.

After consulting a physician, you should explore and dine in Brisbane vegan restaurant near you. There are many people who are afraid of being a vegetarian on the belief that they don’t have any place to dine outside their homes. But, they shouldn’t be, since there are a lot of eateries and caterers that also serve plant-based dishes like Simon’s Gourmet Gallery.
