What is vegan?
Vegans avoid using animals for consumption because they believe eating them is more unethical than not consuming them. If everyone were vegan, there would be much less water pollution in the world caused by factory farming.
Veganism has many health benefits, including lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, better weight management, stronger immune systems, and even lower cancer rates since plant-based vegans don’t consume as many carcinogens from meat.
IKEA’s Food Court: Vegan and Vegetarian Options
The vegan food will be available both in its traditional self-serve restaurant and in its marketplace. It should be comforting for anyone struggling to find vegan food because it is now available in IKEA restaurants and IKEA Swedish Food Market.
Currently, the IKEA Restaurant menu vegetarian only offers two vegan items: hot dogs and vegetarian meatballs. But don’t worry, they’re both vegans. Vegetarian means just that no animal products are used during production or preparation.
IKEA Veggie dogs
The IKEA veggie dogs are made from red lentils, kale, red cabbage, carrots, ginger, quinoa, and onion. They have become many customers’ favorites and are now the staple food on the IKEA restaurant menu vegetarian.Â
IKEA Veggie Balls
The IKEA food court and marketplace serve vegan balls made with vegetables. These IKEA veggie balls sound like old-fashioned vegan burgers because they are made of a chunk of vegetables. Some of these vegetables present include carrots and chickpeas. But this food is not mimic meat.
Â IKEAâ€™s Swedish Food Market
For over the years, IKEA has been home furnishing the world. Recently, it also became home for everyone’s vegan food needs. Even meat eaters can get their veggies on with the Swedish Food Market’s current selection of 100% plant-based dishes.
IKEA Potato Chips / IKEA Potato Wedges
Think these potato chips are just as good as their counterparts? It’s hard not to. We will go out on a limb and say they’re even better. One taste of the crisp, crunchy pieces with their light onion flavor is all it takes for chips lovers.
IKEA Bread & Crispbread
Two of IKEA’s most beloved items, wheat crispbread, and white bread, are now vegan and come with a hearty serving of argan oil. Once on the IKEA food court menu, you can choose rye crispbread, wholegrain crisp rolls, soft thin bread, and multigrain crispbread.
Suppose you’ve ever tried any other type of flatbread before. In that case, this should feel very familiar â€” it’s chewy on the inside with a light crisp outside.
Most of the gummy candies you come across contain gelatin. However, since IKEA turned to vegan friendly dining, that is not the case. You will find this sweet IKEA food menu stocked with chewy vegan candies. These come in different flavors: strawberry, vanilla ice cream cones, moose jellies, sour Viking ships, berry-flavored hearts, and more.
IKEA Jams & Jelly
The best bet is always at the Marketplace, where there are over 12 options: raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, apricot, boysenberry, and more. Many of them come in flavors like ginger and vanilla bean too!
Of course, the Swedish furniture chain knows something about being green. The IKEA Food Market has over 400 vegan options, including apple carrot cake, blueberry crisp, and cheesecake cups. If you’re looking for something quick and easy on the go, try the vegan ginger thins, a cookie with raspberry, or ginger thins with almonds.
IKEA Organic Pasta
In the end, it is not easy to find out exactly what is in a food product. IKEA has done an impressive job of being transparent about the ingredients and nutritional value of its food. It is safe to say that most of their dishes are healthy and wholesome.
It would be foolish not to include IKEA on your list when looking for low-calorie meal options that are delicious as well! Suppose you have been hunting all day but can’t seem to get a deer or bird. Suppose also that your backpack contains nothing more than cereal bars, granola bars, canned fish or meat, and some rice – staples of any camping diet. Wouldn’t you feel cheated?
After all, raw ingredients usually taste better than processed ones. Besides providing greater nutrition, unprocessed foods are easier on the environment because they don’t involve large quantities of packaging.
