Dining out doesn't always have to be about what you can't eat, but about what you can eat! Especially when trying a vegan or vegetarian cafe. One of our favorites is Sipz. I can pick up a menu and order vegan sushi, "chicken", "beef", etc. I love cooking but every once in a while it's fun to go out.

Check it out and/or check out a local vegan/vegetarian cafe in your area. http://www.sipz.com/
