Requires some creativity.
Especially as a whole foods vegan (french fries and soda pop, are vegan, for example, but not exactly up my alley).
Here’s a little snippet of eating out with me a few weeks ago.
This takes place at Ottavio’s (which sadly closed last week, sniffle…) a very RICH (ie. sausage, chicken, and lots of cheese and cream based dishes) Italian restaurant. This dish was not on the menu. They didn’t have whole wheat pasta, but hey, you do the best you can. I also specifically asked to have my veggies sauteed in water (no oil). They were very accommodating. Lovely place.
Proof that you can order a healthful dish nearly anywhere (except for Chili’s, believe me, I tried), you just have to get creative and tell ’em what you want.
