Today, we invite you to journey with us to Israel, a fascinating country being famous as the home of holy religious sites for Christians, Jews and Muslims. Among our stops is Tel Aviv, the second most populous city in Israel and the economic and technological heart of the nation. This coastal city is also known as the “Vegan Capital of the World!” Our first stop is the vegan restaurant Zakaim, located in the heart of Tel Aviv city. The name itself means guilt-free in Hebrew. Let's go taste the culinary creations and meet Keren Or and Oren Hazan, the two passionate new owners who value the importance of choosing a plant-based diet. “I think everyone that goes vegan saves so many lives of poor animals who suffer, and saves the planet from all the pollution that comes with the [livestock] industry. It's really blessed. Just Go Vegan, Save Innocent Animals.” Now, let's explore a vegan restaurant in the same neighborhood called Nature Boys and listen to its owner tell the story of its founding. “I love everything vegan, of course, because I'm a vegan.” Nature Boys is clearly doing their part for our Earth and health by using eco-friendly containers as much as possible, not frying foods in cooking oil, and, of course, serving delicious plant-based cuisine. Our next stop is Herzog. The bistro offers a special dish called “Har” or “Mountain.” It’s a huge pile of wholesome deliciousness with alternating ingredients. Herzog will bring you creative and interesting food that nourishes your body and mind. We then headed to Mitzpe Ramon in southern Israel, to visit a vegan café named Mauna, which in Sanskrit means “silence within.” The salads, sandwiches, burgers, soups, smoothies etc. at Mauna are exceptional. The vegan ingredients used are colorful, fresh, flavorful and nutritious, just like homemade food. Our last destination is Tofu An, a hidden vegan gem with special in-store tofu varieties, situated in Binyamina, a coastal town north of Tel Aviv. It was fantastic to tour around the outstanding plant-based eateries of the Vegan Capital of The World as well as those in other Israeli cities.
