GUIDE TO VEGAN AND VEGETARIAN OPTIONS IN FAST FOOD AND QUICK SERVICE CHAINS

If you donít use meat, what can you eat while on the road? The Vegetarian Resource Group has answered this question with a 32-page Guide to Vegan and Vegetarian Options in Fast Food and Quick Service Chains.

Vegetarians are able to travel almost anywhere in the country and purchase a vegetarian or vegan bean burrito at Taco Bell. Their beans do not contain animal fat, and the tortilla wrappers are now made without dairy.

Subway is very consumer friendly with veggie sandwiches made to order. Many of the Subway stores are now offering a meatless burger and vegan Fruizle smoothie. Check your local establishment.

Burger King states their French fries are cooked in vegetable shortening and are not pre-treated with beef fat. Little Caesarsí dough does not contain cheese and Pizza Hutís regular pizza sauce and meatless spaghetti marinara sauce are vegetarian.

There have been several improvements since the last fast food survey. For example, Taco Bell said the chicken broth was removed from their seasoned rice due to consumer demand.

To obtain detailed information about 80 chains, order the 32-page guide to restaurants by sending $4.00 to The Vegetarian Resource Group, P.O. Box 1463, Baltimore, MD 21203.
