British sailors who work on aircraft carriers can now taste the vegan lifestyle on the sea.
The new plant-based options have been added to menus on vessels Prince of Wales and Queen Elizabeth following trials to 'assess demand'.
Both £3billion ships have around 700 sailors aboard. This number doubles when aircrews are added in.
The vegan options include vegan pasties, falafels, plant-based burgers, lentil lasagne and other treats including desserts such as apple pie with custard made from coconut milk.
According to Mirror, 100% vegan meals will be now available on all ships throughout the fleet in a six-week menu.
The Ministry of Defence spokesman said: "Healthy living in the Armed Forces is of vital importance, and we encourage a nutritious diet."
The number of vegans in the Navy is unknown, but the announcement comes just months after top brass were forced to source leather and wool-free uniforms.
The policy was changed after a test case in which a helicopter technician objected to wearing leather boots.
