Eating out should be fun but sometimes as a vegan, it’s just stressful. Don’t use this lifestyle as an excuse to not eat out/socialize.
Here are some tips on how to eat out as a vegan:
*Check the menu online to give you a head start on what’s available-This will help you start thinking about what the server can modify for you. Sometimes you may get stuck with just a salad and fries but it’s good to know that ahead of time.
*Seek out local/no-chain restaurant- They tend to more accommodating and have vegan options already on the menu (Asian restaurants come to mind)
*Get comfortable with your server-Get specific with what you don’t want on you plate. Saying you’re vegan isn’t enough because some people don’t know exactly what that means.
*Look at side dishes for ideas-steamed vegetables, French fries, applesauce, baked potatoes
*If you’re going to party, eat before you leave
*You can also bring a dish to share with the group to guarantee that you will have something to eat
*Happycow.net is an awesome resource to locate vegan restaurants near your home or while traveling. Simply enter your zip code to start exploring your options.
