Mexico has often attracted attention in the past with regards to vegan tendencies. The fact that vegan lifestyles and green thinking have established themselves in large parts of the North American country has now been confirmed by data from the Gourmet Show (a popular food festival in Mexico). According to the new data, 20 percent of Mexicans identify themselves as vegans or vegetarians.
The rapidly-growing vegan trend has met with much acceptance and adoption, especially amongst young Mexicans. The motivators behind the vegan transformation include not just environmental protection but also the increasing rejection of products with animal traces. Instead of meat, many Mexicans are consuming vegetables, fruit, seeds and cereals, thus reaping the many health benefits of a vegan diet.
