I think that the most difficult part of being a vegan or vegetarian, is always having to justify your life choices to other people. Why is everyone so concerned about our protein intake?? I just ignore it, as you are not going to persuade people not to eat meat, they love it far too much.

I don't see why people should be bothered by what I eat. It's my choice and I don't need to justify that. It's a matter of respect.

My daughter's a vegetarian so sometimes we forget about it when we go out to eat. Restaurants have some selections for vegans but not a lot. She manages to pick a salad or something that suits her diet.

Most restaurants have salad. I do ask if they have anything for vegans and if they could make something. Some restaurants actually oblige making something and I'm thankful for that.

Don’t make a big deal out of going to certain restaurants. Bring your own vegan snack pack to fill you up if nothing at the restaurant hits the spot. Recommend or ask for places that might be more likely to include vegan options, but don’t ruin your friends’ experience while doing so.

I don't make it a big deal because there must be one or two that I can eat. Asking them nicely for something vegan can also be done. Chefs would gladly oblige the request.

I always make sure there are vegan choices when we go eat somewhere. My sister is vegan so we need to respect her food choices. We come up with a place that's good for her and us.

If you have plans to go to a restaurant and you aren’t sure of the vegan options, just give them a ring and ask. If the restaurant really doesn’t have any vegan options, you can change your plans. It also let’s the chef know ahead of time that you are coming so if they want to prepare something special they have the time to do so.

Some restaurants are open to making something for you if you request. They have chefs that are creative and it would be a nice challenge for them.

Being Vegan in a non-vegan friendly household is really difficult, as family members are not usually willing to compromise. But sticking to salads, and cooking your own vegetables (so you know what it is cooked in/with) and stock up with Fry's food products should get you by. It's both vegetarian and vegan friendly.

As a vegetarian, Fry's was my go-to at home. It just gets expensive as a student.

I used to play nice about it, but by now I am so fed up with people judging my lifestyle and what I choose to put in my body. Why is it anyone's business?

So far, restaurants have been accommodating of vegans. We do call and ask their menus and if they'd make something for vegan guests.

To avoid any tension, we look for restaurants that have some vegan selections. We wouldn't want someone to feel left out and just have a salad.

There are lots of great apps or websites that will help you find great veg friendly restaurants near you. This can be especially great for travel.

You can compromise and eat in a place that both vegs and non vegs can be happy. It would be awkward to have someone not enjoy their food because they feel forced,

If ever I do have vegan friends coming, we try to have a restaurant that has a vegan menu. We have a lot of apps that could help find restaurants that would cater to all palates.

Being vegan can be tough sometimes. Some servers don't understand it and you need to keep explaining what you want. It can get frustrating.

Check to make sure the items you are ordering are vegan, the servers understand your language, so they will know how to edit a dish if needed to make it vegan friendly.

There are some items in the menu that are good for vegans. Look out for the symbols there.
