MacDonalds Goes Vegetarian!

This is crazy!!

Fortunately, it is our sisters and brothers in India that will be blessed with vegetarian MacDonald's.

BUT if they can do it there, they will/can do it ANYWHERE.

We can demand the change.

Disclaimer:

I don't endorse eating dead chickens as being vegetarian.

To quote:

"They have menu items that cater to local tastes, such as the Maharaja Mac, which is a Big Mac made with chicken patties instead of beef. It also offers a McAloo Tikki, a burger made with a spicy breaded potato patty, red onions, tomatoes and a “special vegetable sauce.”

I say order the McAloo Tikki: sounds great!

I wish, they do it in North America soon, would love to have McAloo burger, it tastes great.

damn, why would you want that. It is still a multinational compamy that makes its money selling junkfood burgers made from dead animals. it is also one of the reasons why every third person in the US is obese.

Don't eat at Mcdonalds. ever.

McDonald's will do anything to make money.

If enough of us insist on cruelty free vegan food that they can make a profit off of, they will do that.

Realize they have no scruples: they think with their wallet.
Money is the only language they speak.

The only thing that's certain in life is change.

We can change reality: we can change others.

Have faith in your own power: the power to change others.

You CAN do it, Thomas!
You're not alone!

i've had the vegetarian options in india and when they had them here in the states for a short time. the maharaja used to be soy patties but i guess they changed it. dont be fooled though, they are still prepared on meat/dairy utensils, tables, etc. and they taste bad.

Regardless can't stand MacDonalds due to their control over the food companies and farming. India has such amazing food why would you want a McD's?

I agree with you ... unfortunally they have also soja latte macchiato, thats mean - cause I love it but I don't want to support Mac D. Like my doctor says, you have to die one death ...

Saddening to see there are people who seem to be keen to finance and morally support a business that generates so much animal cruelty. And are probably (I haven't researched this) getting away with paying unfair prices to farmers because of the leverage they being a multinational.

Very strange to read these comments in a vegetarian/vegan group!

btw, there are many vegetarian and vegan CS-ers who host a 'living room restaurant' on a regular basis. Sounds much better :-)
