Tips for Eating Healthy While Eating Out

When I first went vegan, one of the things I found the hardest was finding healthy vegan options while eating out. Here are a few tips on how to avoid the awkward situation or having nothing to eat or seeming fussy and ruining a social event.

1. Check the menu

Before going out to a restaurant for dinner, I always make sure to check the menu s you know there is something you’ll eat. Look out for the symbols on the side such as VG and V for vegetarian or vegan, GF for gluten free, DF for dairy free and OF for oil free. There is usually a key at the bottom of the menu that tells you what each symbol means.

2. Tell the restaurant about your

dietary requirements

To make sure there is food available for you to eat at a restaurant you are planning on visiting you can either contact the restaurant before visiting it or telling your waiter or waitress upon arrival at the restaurant.

3. Make your own meals

Something I like to do when we go out to dinner to get something such as pizza is to ask if I can make my own with other ingredients on the menu so you can customise a meal to suit your dietary requirements.

4. Go to healthy restaurants

Restaurants that sell organic, vegan, paleo food etc only serve healthy dishes and are the most likely places to have healthy options that you will enjoy.
