View Full Version : Eating out raw is not so hard
07-12-2008, 05:22 PM
So eating out has always been a great pleasure for me and this week I went out a couple of times to eat and it was not as bad as I thought trying to eat raw even with people who were not. All it really takes is to tell the other person about my needs before we pick a place, so that there isn't the stress of going somewhere that doesn't have anything that will not have any satisfying food.
And I was glad that I ate quite light with a friend that I used to always go and pig out with. I was looking at the massive amount of food he ordered and couldn't imagine putting it all in my stomach :eek: And my stomach thanked me afterwards for sure!
Just felt like sharing

I needed to hear something encouraging about eating out with sad eaters at sad restaurants. Its been hard , but you're right. I know its all in the thinking and the sharing too. Thanks for the positive spin on it.
Rawstrength, I love the idea of natural dyes! I will be waiting for your site to 'open'. I hope you let us all know.PM if you like, when you get going.

Well my friend was willing to come with me to a vegan restaurant this time, so it wasn't so hard. I had the "delux salad" which is a nice mix of greens, sprouts, guacamole, and some sort of thing made out of carrots that is supposed to simulate smoked salmon (it doesn't taste similar at all but it is delicious). I really like this restaurant most of their food is cooked, but it is all vegan and they have a nice salad.
And of course a nice mango that I picked on up the way was for desert later on....yum

I was out with friends tonight, and Ruby Tuesday has a pretty substantial salad bar - 3 kinds of lettuce, spinach, lots of chopped veggies, craisins, nuts, olive oil, vinegar, fruit, etc. It wouldn't be 100% raw (nuts would be roasted, olives canned) but it is an option if you ever need to dine out with solid SAD folk.
