Vegan Fast Food (USA)

Some people think that being vegan is extra hard because there’s nothing to eat at fast food, and some people can only afford fast food because of financial reasons or they might live in a fast food restaurant where that’s the only thing available!  Whatever the reason, there are a LOT of fast food options available to us! I’ll even categorize restaurants by how easy it is to order vegan there. A note, though- cross contamination is an issue at a lot of places that serve “vegan” food, but don’t think to cook it separately from meat. If this is a problem for you, you should probably make sure this won’t happen at the fast food chain by contacting them prior or explaining your lifestyle while placing an order.

I will add more restaurants as I find them, and you can leave a comment below if you find anything here to be wrong or just have something to add!
