I have chosen to eat a plant based diet for about 7 years now and I will tell you that "eating out" or "dinner and a movie" takes on a whole new meaning. Most places that I've been to have options that can be made without animal products in them. I also look at menus ahead of time and plan accordingly. If nothing seems to work, I'll have something to eat at home ahead of time and have a salad while out. To me it's not so much about the food-more the company.
