Being a vegan while dining out can be challenging. In the beginning, I mostly ate salads, but that got old very quickly. There was a time eating out wasn’t fun at all for me because I was paranoid about ingredients.
Don’t be afraid to question ingredients-Politely let the server know your dietary needs and ask for recommendations.
Many restaurants have at least one vegan option and several vegetarian ones, so it’s not nearly as hard as it may seem. I prefer local restaurants over major chains any day because the food options are better and service more tailored to your needs.
If you find out your meal isn’t vegan don’t beat yourself up. I had to learn this one for myself! If all else fails, go vegetarian.
