A Holiday in Paradise: A Vegan Holiday in Greece
The land of picturesque white villages atop high cliff tops, crystal blue waters, and beautiful temples everywhere you look, Greece is the perfect holiday destination for many. A vegan holiday in Greece is both easy and fun.
Brits in particular love Greece’s party get-aways as well its relaxing coves away from the noise. But can you get a decent vegan meal while there?
Although veganism is not common or even well known in Greece, with initiatives like Veganuary being largely unknown, their food can be surprisingly vegan friendly. This is because Christian Orthodoxy is the main religion in Greece, a religion which involves ‘fasting’ periods at certain times of the year such as Lent. During this time, animal products (except for honey and marine invertebrates such as squid, octopus, shellfish, etc., as well as tuna (in some areas/traditions)) are not included in dishes.
