Amsterdam Travel: Vegan Amsterdam Guide

A Guide to Vegan Amsterdam

Let's get one thing straight before I dig any further into this vegan Amsterdam guide; I am not a vegan. I am not even vegetarian. I like to call myself a "flexitarian", in that I eat a mostly vegetarian diet but I don't never eat meat and I am definitely not a full vegan.
