Hold the chicken and pile on the pinto beans. The vegan fad has been spreading like wildfire, and there isn’t enough almond milk to put it out. The vegan diet is one not to be taken lightly; forgoing a Chipotle steak burrito or thick milkshakes to live a plant-based life takes time and intense effort. Luckily, campuses all over are catching on to this healthy lifestyle, and our top 10 vegan-friendly colleges will show you where to find the best vegan options.
7. Stanford University
In the mood for some rice or almond milk? How about a vegan quinoa burger with seasoned sweet potato fries? Stanford knows what’s up when it comes to vegan choices. “The Stanford dining services is very attentive to students’ preferences and health concerns,” student Cameron DeHart said. They also offer vegan meals in every dining hall so you’ll never feel like you’re out of options. Stanford continuously looks for ways to accommodate their students. Just recently, the school installed soy milk dispensers in their dining halls. Plus, Stern Dining Hall always offers tofu burritos or bowls. Who says vegans miss out on Chipotle? For dessert, head over to Fraiche for some soy fro-yo that will make you wave bye to Pinkberry for good. Areas around campus are vegan-friendly too. For example, Curry Up Now (Palo Alto) was once a single food truck and has since expanded to five trucks and three restaurants. They all have a distinct take on Indian street favorites. Look out for their trending samosas and Holy Moly Fried Ravioli.
