Calgary is famously known as cowtown, a nod to our western heritage and the ranch land that surrounds the city. In the midst of the vast prairie, Calgary is a metropolitan city, home to people with a variety of lifestyles, including specific dietary requirements or preferences.
This site aims to explore the various aspects to the vegetarian lifestyle in Calgary and what resources are available to Calgarians who are vegan, vegetarian or those who just may want to learn more.
People decide to become vegetarian for many reasons. For some, it’s an ethical choice while for others it’s for health reasons, or maybe a combination of both. A plant based diet can also be cultural. Whatever the reason, there are many things to consider when looking at a plant-based diet.
