Gokul Restaurant in Hassan, Karnataka

We had recently been to Hassan, India . Hassan is close to Belur and Halebedu, famous for ancient temples.  The architecture and sculptures is breathtaking in Channakeshava temple. If you visit India, and you are passionate about ancient arts and history,  you should visit Belur and Halebedu in Hassan district, Karnataka state.

During our visit to Hassan, we had breakfast in Gokul restaurant. Gokul restaurant is a vegetarian restaurant, and I saw so many delicious and traditional vegan dishes from Karrnataka cuisine.

I ate Akki rottis( rice flat bread) with tomato gojju. The akki rottis were so soft and tasty. My husband and MIL ate idli and sambar along with crispy vadas. My son relished eating Aloo paratha (potato stuffed flat bread). In short, Gokul restaurant is a paradise for vegans and vegetarians.

4 Reasons To Go Vegan in 2016

1.  Vegan Diet (Plant-based diet) is good for health:  According to American Heart Association, Vegan diet can be healthful and nutritionally sound if they’re carefully planned to include essential nutrients. Many studies have shown that vegetarians and vegans  to have a lower risk of obesity, diabetes and cancer.

2.  Vegan Diet is best for the Environment  : Meat and dairy industries causes lot of air and water pollution. According to the Livestock Long Shadow report from United Nations, the Livestock sector - meat and dairy industries, is the major cause for global warming.

United Nations is urging people to eat less meat and dairy products. In United States, Meatless Monday has become so popular.

3. World Hunger Can Be Eradicated : According to Peta,  Every 12 seconds, a kid dies due to hunger. 925 million people don't have enough to eat. 


According to many scientists, Meat production is a wasteful use of the planet's limited resources .  40% of grain crops are going to feed livestock and fish. It is most inefficient with intensive beef farming, where it has been shown that just 2.5% of the feed given to cattle emerges as calories for our consumption.
4. Suffering of Animals : Every day millions of cows, pigs and chickens endure lot of pain and suffering in crowded sheds. In short, the condition of animals is heart wrenching across the world. You will stop consuming meat and milk products if you see Earthlings and other eye-opening documentaries. Going vegan is a great way to stop the suffering of innocent animals.
