Once considered a niche diet, veganism has gone mainstream — so much so that the number of people following a vegan diet has increased by 350% in the last decade, according to research from the U.K. and the US. At first glance, a vegan diet may seem complicated or overly restrictive. Many of people who are considering switching over to a vegan diet are initially worried about finding suitable vegan alternatives to their favorite meals.
