Miami – A Compassionate Business Award is setting sail from PETA to Oceania Cruises in honor of its new vegan menus, which feature more than 250 innovative, plant-based dishes on all of its six ships, plus raw juice and smoothie bars on two of them. The expanded culinary options follow encouragement last year from PETA, as well as growing public interest in wellness-focused lifestyles.
Standouts from the new menus include vanilla waffles with fresh berries and apricot and pistachio muffins for breakfast, a succulent involtini stuffed with tofu, spinach, and capers for lunch, and a bevy of ever-changing five-course meals for dinner, such as Thai red vegan curry with steamed jasmine rice, a creamy truffle-flavored parsnip soup with tarragon, and a quinoa salad and vegetable tartare.
“Oceania Cruises’ compassionate and delicious new vegan menus will keep guests healthy and spare animals’ lives,” says PETA’s director of corporate affairs, Anne Brainard. “PETA urges other cruise lines to follow suit with fresh, animal-free fare.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that vegan meals reduce diners’ chances of developing heart disease by a whopping 32 percent, according to a large-scale study conducted by Oxford University. In addition, going vegan reduces the risk of suffering from diabetes, obesity, and cancer—and saves the lives of more than 100 animals a year. Google Trends notes that public interest in vegan eating is higher now than ever before.
