Vegetarian Options at Your Favorite Food Chains

Being a vegetarian shouldn’t stop you from eating at your favorite restaurant or fast-food chain. Most restaurants offer vegetarian,vegan, and gluten-free menus and if you don’t see them, ASK!

Below are some of my favorite menu items.

I am not Vegan, these are my personal favorite vegetarian options. Items below may contain egg and dairy products and remember, just because its vegetarian, does not mean its healthy. 

BJ’s http://www.bjsrestaurants.com 

  • vegan pizza crust (in fact, many pizza chains offer vegan pizza crust and sauce)
  • deep dish ravioli, no meat (original dish includes italian sausage and pepperoni)
  • honey sriracha brussel sprouts

Buffalo Wilds Wings http://www.buffalowildwings.com

  • black-bean patty (order your favorite burger and ask to substitute the patty with a black-bean patty, it has a tiny bit of a spicy kick to it)
