More people than ever are going for a plant-based diet, with ten million people in America categorizing themselves as vegan. And Boise is keeping pace as one of the best places in the country for vegan takeout.

It's World Vegan Month, and the site Myprotein, has come up with the best vegan eats in the country. They picked one Boise restaurant as the best spot for vegan takeout in Idaho, and it's among the top spots in the country.

A strict vegan is someone who doesn't eat any food derived from animals and they don't use any animal products.  Sometimes I think I could classify as vegan, but I love eggs too much.  And cheese, although some of the plant-based cheeses do fill the void.  Oh, and salmon!  Wowie, wow, it appears I am a vegan failure.  I've tried to be vegan in the past, but my efforts are always derailed by cravings of salmon with a barbecue glaze, so I've given up trying to classify my food habits.  If there is a category for people who are plant-based 89 percent of the time, that's probably where I fall.

Myprotein said veganism is becoming a top trend with more than ten million people already on board.  They searched for the best vegan eats in the country and came up with a list of the best restaurants for getting your plant-based takeout fix, and Boise gets recognition as the bright spot in Idaho.

Bombay Grill is the best spot in the state for vegan takeout, according to Myprotein.  Bombay Grill has meat on the menu, but plenty of veggie options too.  Alu Gobi Masala sounds good, and that's "cauliflower and potatoes cooked in spices with fresh tomatoes, garlic, and ginger. Served with Basmati Rice."  It got enough attention to land Boise on the map for the best vegan restaurants in America.  And it sounds like it would be awesome on a winter night by a cozy fire with a movie marathon and fuzzy slippers on the side.

It seems like Boise is always making one list or another for being the most trendsetting city in Idaho, and that shows no signs of slowing down in 2021.   Yay us.  And, if you have suggestions for other great restaurants with vegan offerings, let me know!  We're always looking to give Boise businesses some much-deserved love.
