If you are like me, you have rolled your eyes more than once when your group has chosen a dinner place and then excitedly turned to you and said, “Hey, Tamia. You can come too. They have salad!” Restricting myself to a limited assortment of usually wilted iceberg lettuce and overripe beefsteak tomatoes is not my idea of good plant based eating or fun. I had to empower myself and my social circle if we were going to dine together and be satisfied. This digital directory seeks to do just that: Take the leg work and guess work out of choosing a restaurant so we can all dine in or out well together.
It is important to know where to go to get food that supports your well-being. Research says that well-being centered choices as default items increases the likelihood of sustainable wellness. So here is a list of my favorite go-to spots that require little or no substitutions and have a wide variety of delicious options.
If your favorite spot is not listed, but you would like a recommendation for what customizable options are available, add the name of the restaurant, their website or upload their menu. I am also available to consult with chefs, restaurants, and food preparers on cost effective ways to meet the plant based palette.
