vegan as well
- Well, I became a vegetarian in late December 2005, and by the
following February I had cut all animal completely out of my diet.
Eating at a restaurant in the ICT is hard. I don't have a problem
with my diet, but I've found that the minute I step outside my door
and into a restaurant, it becomes a huge issue. I've learned that
not many people here really know what "vegan" is. To save time, I
just tell them all I'm lactose intolerant and I don't eat meat. If
they know that they may kill you if they give you the wrong food,
they're more likely to prepare your meals a bit more carefully.
Really, if you hit the mediterranean (probably didn't spell that
right) or asian cusines in town, you find some great food. I'm
shocked at it, but Village Inn actually carries boca burgers. I had
a horrible experience when my carniverous friends dragged me into
Outback Steakhouse. We're talking about a company that doesn't even
have a marinara sauce, let alone a salad that isn't dripping in
flesh. I told my waitress I was vegan, and went with her food
recommendations. I spent quite a bit of money that night, only to
get sick the next day. Turns out that everything the waitress had
assured me I could eat had butter or milk in it, and since it hadn't
been in my system for so long, I was so tired and lackadaisical the
next day I could barely function at work. It was horrible.
Oh, I guess that this is supposed to be an introduction since it's
my first post. Hey! I'm Jen! Nice to meetcha!
- Hey, glad to hear there are more of us out here in Wichita!!! I
started a wichita vegetarians and vegans on meetup.com if you want to
join there there are 8 more of us. I sometimes tell people I'm lactose
intolerant too just because I'm too lazy to explain everything about
being vegan--then when you do it leads to funny looks and a long list
of questions. Not too many options in Wichita (Dallas/ Fort worth is
great compared to here). So far as I can tell there is stuff a PF
Changs, Macaroni Grill (tell them no chesse no butter) Johnny
Carino's, Bennigans,A Taste of India, Poblanos, and Green leaf cafe
(the Indian groc store sells snacks and some stuff on the weekend but
the place isn't exactly clean).
I do know the feeling of accidently eating dairy after not eating
it for a long time...I did that too and my stomach hurt so bad!!
Glad to meet you and hope to see you on meetup.com...If not I check
here regularly too.
- Sounds cool. What's the website for the meetup group?

Ring'em or ping'em. Make PC-to-phone calls as low as 1¢/min with Yahoo! Messenger with Voice.
Or you can just go to meetup.com and search for
wichita vegetarians. :-)
