Vegan ACT's 30 Day Go Vegan Challenge

Hi <<First Name>>! 

WELCOME TO DAY FIVE! 

WOW! Nearly your first week being vegan, well done!

 

Kym's advice for day five:
Yesterday my advice was regarding how to be prepared for dinner parties and barbeques with non-vegan friends. Today I want to give some advice about eating at non-vegan restaurants and cafes. You will find that almost any eatery will do their best to cater for you and create a special dish or variation or as we vegans like to say 'veganise' one of the menu items, for example do the Baked potatoes without sour cream or butter, or the vegetarian burger without the cheese. I don't recommend to try to veganise things like a chicken salad or a fried rice without bacon, as the waiter will sometimes suggest that they 'pick out' the offending animal products, but this always results in bits and pieces left behind that can make for an unpleasant meal. 
If you are eating at a fine restaurant, they will sometimes even have a 'secret' vegan menu. I'm at a loss why some restaurants are still doing this, as if a plant-based meal that takes less toll on the environment, our health and the animals is something to keep hidden away.. perhaps they fear selling less of their high priced and cruelty-infused pieces of dead baby animals body parts...**insert face palm**. Anyway, for a up-market restaurant, always email or phone a day or two ahead and let them know that you will be requiring a vegan meal, as you don't want to pay $50+ for your main course and end up with tiny snack size portion of veggie korma or pea risotto that will leave you with a half-empty tummy and a completely empty wallet!
