Vegans all over the world are faced with the same (slightly irritating) questions and assumptions that come with the lifestyle:
“But where do you get your protein?”
“All of your hair will fall out by the time you’re 30!”
“What do you eat besides lettuce?”

But then Tel Aviv came along with its vegan restaurants, festivals, and love.

Whether it’s the love for fresh produce or living creatures, or the inspirational public figures, Tel Aviv is becoming a vegan hotspot. Check out my 7 Reasons Why It’s Easy Being a Vegan in Tel Aviv.
