Eating your veggies is suddenly hip.

You might accuse me of being biased – and for full disclosure, yes, I’ve always been a huge veggie and plant-based food fan and proponent – but look around you and see the signs.

In restaurants, veggies are taking center plate; menus are listing more plant-based offerings as many Americans declare they are trying to eat less meat. Pinterest reports a 336 percent rise in the search for veggies in comfort foods.
