Healthy eating has become the new mantra for fitness lovers across the globe. According to an article in TheTelegraph the number of vegans in Great Britain alone has increased by 360% in 10 years. That's a big number just from a country with a population less than that of Rajasthan. It's undeniable: more and more people are leaning towards healthy eating habits, which includes adopting veganism and vegetarianism.
Living in the big city and leading busy lives, we barely get any time for ourselves. Working out is a challenge for many working people. But the least we can do is eat right. That's why in the last few years many restaurants started serving healthier food. Some of them have separate sections in their menu dedicated to organic and clean eating and others have their entire restaurant based on it. From salad-only places to completely organic ones, these restaurants have gained their own set of loyal patrons. For all you folks in Mumbai looking for healthy vegetarian food, we have a few places for you right here.
