As we continue to learn more about ourselves, our bodies, brains, and more we are changing how we do things. One of the changes that has taken the storm over the last decade has been the vegan movement. Many individuals are turning away from meat and other animal-produced products and choosing to eat green.

This movement has caused many restaurants, grocery stores, and other businesses that provide food to offer vegan options on their menus. It's normal now to be able to get plant-based or animal-free food options just about where you go and in Kalamazoo, they have taken the month of May to a new Vegan level.

Starting on May 1st a number of restaurants, breweries, and other food places in Kalamazoo added extra vegan options to their menu as they are participating in the Kalamazoo Vegan Chef Challenge. The challenge runs through the end of the month and encourages residents to visit the different restaurants try some of their vegan options and vote.
