It's hard being vegan sometimes. Here are some great vegan fast food options you can try!

The Best Vegan Fast Food Options in 2018

I know how difficult it is to stick to a vegetarian diet, much less a vegan one, especially if you don't live in a big city. Growing up in a small town in the Midwest, trying not to starve as a vegan was harder than getting your own deer meat in October. And it definitely didn't help that the only restaurants in the area were fast food chains.

But, what if I told you that fast food restaurants like Taco Bell, Chipotle, and even Carl's Jr. have vegan options that are actually delicious? Game changer.

If fast food is the only option to eat out in your area, or perhaps you're trying to eat vegan, but can't get the idea of fast food out of your head, you're in luck. Here are some of the best vegan fast food options out there right now.

And no, you won't regret it.

Whether you want a burrito or burrito bowl, Chipotle's sofritas is a delicious blend of shredded tofu, chipotle chilies, roasted chili peppers, and spices. It's definitely as mouth-watering as it sounds. And as with any Chipotle dish, you get to choose exactly what else goes into it.

Subway Veggie Delight

Like Chipotle, Subway offers a personalized meal. But, Subway's Veggie Delight is a personal favorite and classic vegan option if you so choose. Just make sure to skip the cheese and don't forget the sweet onion sauce.

Del Taco recently started serving an alternative protein that is 100% vegan in collaboration with Beyond Meat. While these are only available in Los Angeles at this time, we hope that it expands soon. All you need to do is substitute Beyond Meat Beef Crumbles with the meat. But, try the Beyond Avocado Taco if you can!

Denny's Build Your Own Burger

A personal favorite from Noodles & Company, regardless of a vegan diet. You can choose between the regular and small size, but don't forget to choose tofu as your protein.

We're sad to say that McDonald's doesn't have a lot of vegan options as of right now. But, they recently added something to their breakfast menu that is pretty delicious. Just order their fruit and maple oatmeal, but you must tell them not to include the cream.
