Nashville Vegan Guide

 

Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed my Nashville YouTube video part one, part two will be up tomorrow 8/18 at 8:30am EST including my next trip announcement! If you haven’t seen Part One check it out here: https://youtu.be/CT_AO21Q_3I

So I wanted to do a complete vegan guide to Nashville because we were only there for 2 days and could only eat so much food without ending up in the hospital with perforated stomachs. Please let me know what you think in comments below.

I wanted to thank the local Nashville peeps that reached out and helped me with some places that I hadn’t come across to help make this list as comprehensive as possible! The places in Green are completely plant-based or vegan and the starred places were the ones we tried and loved while we were there!
