Helpful hints from the writers:
Originally the Greek diet was mostly vegan/vegetarian and luckily many signature Greek dishes (here we can link to vegan Greek dishes article) are vegan or vegetarian. If you are vegan, or vegetarian you will be glad to hear that Greeks have the highest intake of vegetables (per person) in the world. The Mediterranean diet uses variety of legumes. So even in traditional tavernas one with vegan/vegetarian preference can find some nice food from the menu to try.
Mediterranean diet is full of salads, and chances are that you will opt for a salad anyways in the hot Athenian summer.
Try the salads from the chef of Blends, right in the heart of Glyfada. A cozy atmosphere, superb service and nice smoothies and juices. Try their quinoa salad with different veggies and chose a nice hearty smoothie to accompany.
Want a perfect sea view with your vegetarian salad? Ark is located right on the beach of Glyfada, with spectacular sea view and tasty Greek cuisine inspired vegan/vegetarian choices from the chef.
Strict vegans should know that traditional places will use the same surface for food preparation for vegetables and for meat: e.g.: will make the vegetables and the meat on the same grill.
