How to effectively become a vegetarian
Becoming a vegetarian is a hard task when you were brought up a meat and potatoes kid. But, it doesn’t have to be. There are many things that discourage people from becoming vegetarians but the most popular is thinking they are not ever going to be able to eat out again. This is simply not true. In fact, there are so many of your favorite restaurants that offer plenty of vegetarian choices—even Italian in Wellington will offer pasta with oil instead of meat sauce as well as eggplant parmigiana and tossed sautéed veggies in oil over pasta or salad. They also offer plenty of fish!
If you are vegan
When you are vegan there are less choices you really have to do some research but vegan restaurants are getting more and more prevalent and you can find directories for your city here http://www.happycow.net/ .
Best Restaurant Types for Vegetarians
- Italian is one of the best still because many only think of pasta but you have to think fresh! That means crispy fresh vegetables and fish and lettuce and then the pastas made with all of the above.
- Chinese is also a good choice but a bit less healthy than Italian unless they make everything right there.
- Thai and Asian Fusion places
- Tea Houses for lunch are popping up all over the US with vegetarian, vegan and Organic choices.
- Fish restaurants—just make sure you are staying clear of the fried stuff. Or, ask what fat they use.
Chains and American Bistros
You can certainly still eat at all the favorite places with exception to the steak houses. And as a vegetarian you have to be able to speak up and not be shy about asking questions. Don’t give in to the hype about looking picky in front of your date or to the wait staff. You are only looking after your own health. Everyone has the right to do that and looking for a group online that supports new vegetarians can help you to feel better about your personal choices with like-minded people.
