Eating out? No problem! Most restaurants can easily modify a dish to be vegan or vegetarian. And many already have vegan options on the menu. Veggie burgers, burritos, salads and pastas can be made veg friendly – often times without any tweaks at all – just ask your server.
Mexican, Thai, Chinese and Japanese restaurants are typically very veg friendly. And there are a few apps on the market that will find local veg restaurant options for you.
Tip: Be polite! Most business are happy to leave off the cheese or modify your dish if you are friendly about it. Sometimes a server might ask a few questions, just be patient, they want to get everything correct.
