Tips for Eating Vegan at Non-Vegan Establishments and National Restaurant Chains
PlantDiego and PlantPure Communities
We recommend supporting smaller, local/eco-friendly businesses whenever possible! Most of these businesses support factory farming and are causing a lot of waste with their excessive to-go packaging. On the other hand, our frequenting these places encourages them to continue offering vegan options, which helps those just starting out on this journey. When on the road, in a big hurry, with a group, or at the airport, these tips can come in handy. So, if you find yourself at one of these places, here are some tips on how to proceed as a plant-based human. Note that many of these selections contain lots of processed flour, oil and sugar, so keep that in mind while ordering.
Since menu items may vary by location, be sure to let your server know that you’re vegan to ensure no animal products are used!
