If you’re planning to eat less meat this year, but you’re not ready to become a full-time vegan, then maybe it’s time to embrace the flexitarian diet. A flexitarian is someone who eats a largely plant-based diet, but also occasionally eats meat, fish and dairy. Just think of it like an extension of meat-free Mondays!

So, whether you’re looking to eat less meat to help the environment (going plant-based can reduce carbon and other greenhouse gases, for example) or you simply just want to take on the 22-day vegan challenge… We’ve rounded up the best vegan (and veggie) dishes at all your favourite restaurants at Silverburn to help.

Vegan pizza? No problem! At , many of their classic pizzas can be easily made vegan thanks to their vegan cheese option. So you and the gang can pop by after shopping and all find something delicious to eat in one place, whether you’re vegan or not! Their new Vegan Zucca pizza is packed with flavour – it’s made with a creamy butternut squash purée, sweet Peppadew peppers, spinach and pine kernels all on a Romana base.

Or why not go for a classic Vegan Giardiniera with artichoke, mushrooms, red onion and gooey vegan mozzarella. (Don’t miss the Vegan dough balls – a Pizza Express classic!)
