Across the United States, consuming plant-based food is certainly seeing increased popularity amongst Americans. In fact, beef consumption across the United States is on the decline, as meat sales were down by more than 12% in comparison to last year. A big reason for this is that many American people are switching over to plant-based diets! Using Google Surveys, the research team at How to Cook polled American people on their dietary preferences
, and the data found was very interesting. When Americans were asked why they've chosen to eat less meat, 6% cited the rising cost of meat, 3% directed their reasons to moral reasons or animal rights, and 4% responded with their decision having to do with environmental reasons. Not only that, but 8% of the respondents claimed that they wouldn't stop eating meat. Overall, close to half of the respondents identified themselves as omnivores. How would you classify your personal dietary preferences?
