Visiting friends and dining out can be a challenge as a vegetarian. Especially when some of those friends will wave a warm piece of bacon under your nose like the Pusherman. Other friends will get it and simply prepare a wonderful root vegetable terrine and salad without asking any questions.
It’s imperative, however, to inform your host when your visit includes any meals. It’s only fair, and no feelings will be hurt.
When it comes to dining out, the choice is up to you but your options are limited, especially when it comes to good old fashioned American diner food. It’s hard to limit ourselves when presented with so many scrumptious options, but that is what we must do since restaurant owners are clearly going to cater to the masses.
The good news? There are actually restaurants out there that make their biscuits and gravy without sausage in the gravy. Finding them is the hard part.
