21-Day Vegan Kickstart / a Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) site
Welcome to day five! Cooking is a great way to cater to your tastes, but you might be surprised to find out how many options you have when you are dining out. A tip on dining out with friends: If you are unfamiliar with the restaurant, call ahead and ask what they have on the menu that is totally animal-free. Sometimes chefs appreciate the extra heads-up and may be inspired to show off some of their culinary skills. Take it from experienced vegan diners—your specially prepared meal will be the envy of your companions.
