Qatar is now home to Evergreen Organics, a 100-percent, plant-based eatery.
Evergreen Organics€”the first all-vegan cafÃ© in Qatar€”opened its doors recently in the capital city of Doha. The eatery serves whole-food, mostly raw fare such as nutrient-dense salads, raw tacos, cold-pressed juices, and desserts like raw mango turmeric and vanilla cheesecakes. Retail areas are stocked with medicinal herbal teas, take-home healthy treats, and gluten-free products, while free space will be devoted to workshops and health-related events. Twenty-four-year-old Ghanim AlSulaiti, co-founder and an engineer by trade, was featured on Qatar Living where he shared his journey to veganism. €œIt took me one whole year to fully give up on meat, dairy, and animal products,€ he said. €œI had to really feel the difference and the impact it had on my body to actually stick to this lifestyle. The benefits are abundant.€
