Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) January 21, 2013

On January 21, 2013, Quorn Foods Inc. releases a statement following a Culinary Backstreets article by Despina Trivolis regarding what and where to eat vegetarian in Athens, Greece.

According to the Culinary Backstreets article, “At first glance, it certainly might seem like Athens is a city that doesn’t cater to vegetarians.” The article states that the vegetarian options in Athens are nowhere near as bad as they may seem, since Greeks are known to be majority meat-eaters.

The article states, “Greeks have become such meat-eaters, in fact, that there are only two strictly vegetarian restaurants and one vegetarian-friendly café/bistro in all of Athens.” However, the article informs that traditional Greek diets are not all meat-based. Thankfully there is an entire category of Greek food that is made up of cooked vegetables in olive oil, called ladera.

If you are ever visiting or vacationing in Athens and would like a good vegetarian meal, the article suggests you try Triantafilos, Kriti, Paradosiako, Derlikatesan, or ImproV Café.

Quorn Foods Inc. commends the article for its travel advice on where to get vegetarian healthy food in Athens. “Not only is it interesting to see how other parts of the world accommodate the vegetarian lifestyle, it is also informative for vegetarians who are visiting the area,” said Quorn representative David Wilson. “Quorn also offers healthy vegetarian recipes, as well as delicious meat substitutes.”

Quorn Foods launched nationally in the US in 2002. Unlike other vegetarian food companies, Quorn foods use mycoprotein: a naturally occurring, healthy form of protein that replicates the taste and texture of meat while being significantly lower in saturated fats and calories. Quorn Foods offer a wide range of products including ready to serve meals, food for your barbecue, breaded meat substitutes, snacks and components to make your own meals from scratch. The wonderful taste of Quorn meatless meals provides the taste of the foods you love without sacrificing nutrition.
