The restaurant industry is increasingly becoming the world’s “gourmet burger king,” with more than 2 billion people eating at some point each year.
But as a whole, Americans have become less vegan, according to a new study by the University of Texas at Austin and the National Academy of Sciences.
While Americans have embraced veg burgers, the trend has been slow to catch on in other parts of the world.
While in the U.S., vegetarians are increasingly turning to vegetarian cuisine, like tacos and sushi, as a way to cut out the meat and dairy in their diets.
The vegan burger trend has also come to a halt in some European countries, where veganism has largely taken a back seat to vegetarianism.
In the U.-S., however, vegans are more likely to be vegan than nonvegans, and veganism is the norm in most major cities.
In addition to the growing vegan market, more than 30 percent of the U-S.
population is now vegan, up from 13 percent in 2012, according the UTA study.
The U-T Austin researchers surveyed more than 1,000 U.N. members, with the results published in the journal PLOS ONE.
They found that veganism was the second most-used dietary pattern among the members surveyed, after the vegetarian diet.
More than 80 percent of U.s. vegans and more than 85 percent of nonvegetarians were either lacto-ovo vegetarians, who eat meat, fish, eggs, dairy, or eggs.
About 70 percent of vegetarians and 40 percent of lacto vegans reported that they are vegan, but more than two-thirds of non-vegetarian vegetarians said they are lacto vegan.
Vegetarians are more open to more vegetarian options.
Among U.K. vegetarians surveyed, more people reported eating more vegetarian food than non- vegetarians.
In the U., only 37 percent of vegans said they were vegetarian and only 30 percent reported that their vegetarian food was vegetarian.
More veg-friendly restaurantsThe vegan diet has come a long way from its humble origins as a diet for a few vegetarian monks in a Tibetan monastery in the Himalayas.
Veganism has been embraced by a growing number of U-K students in the United States.
More than a third of U.-K students reported being vegan, the highest rate of any country surveyed, according a survey by the World Health Organization.
U-K student Sara Smith, 20, says she’s a vegan for health reasons.
But for other reasons, including wanting to make the most of her veganism opportunities, she says she started going vegan in 2015.
When she first started vegan, she said, she was not very conscious of the foods that I was eating.
But as time went on, I started to see the importance of veganism.

More:Sara said she doesn’t have any specific health reasons for her vegan lifestyle.
She’s eating mostly plant-based foods, but said she feels that people need to understand that there are many vegan choices.
“We need to talk about it as an option,” she said.
“If you want to get healthy, you need to be vegetarian.”
More:Vegans in the classroomThe number of veg restaurants in the country has exploded in recent years.
The number of vegan schools in the UK rose from just 3,000 in 2016 to more than 16,000 now.
The demand for vegan food in the home has been growing since the UPDL, which was created in 2012 to promote a plant- and meat-free diet, became the world body’s first vegan organization.
In a survey of 2,000 teachers in the Netherlands, students said they preferred vegan food over conventional school meals.
In Australia, where the national government launched a vegan food program last year, about a third said they would consider becoming a vegan, while the same proportion said they wouldn’t consider changing their diet, according TOVIDA, the Australian Vegetarian Society.
The number who have changed their diet since becoming vegan also rose from about 10 percent to about 17 percent.
In France, where a similar program was launched in 2017, about 30 percent said they had changed their eating habits, compared with around 40 percent who said they didn’t.
Veg-focused restaurants have expanded rapidly in the past decade.
In 2019, the number of vegetarian restaurants in France jumped from about 5,000 to about 14,500.
By 2020, more of those restaurants were vegan, with some restaurants now offering vegan-friendly meals and snacks.
The Vegan Capital of the World report, which is a ranking of U.”s leading restaurants that cater to a vegan diet, found that about half of U’s largest restaurants offer vegan meals and a quarter offer vegan-specific menus.
