In today's society of looking for alternatives in our food, many are going the vegetarian or even vegan route. Whether it's for health or for humanitary reasons, there are plenty of reasons why one seek out other options. As it turns out, living in the Northwest is one of the best places you can be in the United States that'll back this up.

Out of the best cities for vegans and vegetarians according to Wallet Hub, Portland Oregon came in 1st place. Seattle was listed as 4th. Second and Third go to Los Angeles and Orlando.

Affordability, diversity and lifestyle came into account when coming up with this list.

Worst place is El Paso, Texas. Where meat is king, apparently.
