The round-up: fill up on Brisbane’s best vegan meals

Put your presuppositions in the bin – vegan food is not just salad and steamed vegetables. Vegan cuisine is becoming increasingly prominent due to the rise of dietary requirements and a conscientious focus of what we put in our bodies. For those of you who can’t stomach the thought of canning the cutlets and trashing the T-bones in favour of salad, please relax. We aren’t here to sway you to veganism! What we will say is that dining as a vegan can be hard in our predominantly meat-eating society, but also very rewarding – even if you love bacon and eggs. We’ve chosen to point out some vegan eats for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert well worth sampling. more
