The list of plant-based foodies continues to grow, from celebrity vegans like Woody Harrelson and Natalie Portman to vegetarian stars such as Kristen Bell and Paul McCartney.
Hollywood icons are popularizing plant-based dining culture for both health and ethics reasons. But you don’t need to be vegan or vegetarian to enjoy a good meal at these San Antonio-area restaurants.
Before we get to some of the local options, a few definitions: Vegans do not consume animal products, including dairy and meat. Vegetarians eat dairy products like butter, milk and cheese but stop short of consuming meat.
