If you’re like me, you have made a bad habit of eating terribly during fall, winter and spring, and then try your darndest to eat healthier during the summer. As if eating well for one season will completely abscond me of the meal sins committed three out of the four seasons of the year. I tell myself I’ll eat better and try new recipes due to the increased access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Here is the problem: I don’t want to cook. Let me rephrase that. I don’t cook. And I’m guessing, some of you are in the same boat.
Do you know what that means? Going out to eat! Going out to eat! Woo! Who doesn’t love trying new restaurants and being served after a long day? While we’re out, we want to keep this healthy momentum, or maybe we want to include our friends and family who adhere to a specific diet. The following restaurants have the perfect menu for your gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan needs.
But before we deep dive into all this yumminess, I do want to offer a disclaimer. While these restaurants offer gluten free alternatives, they may not be Celiac Disease friendly. Just something to keep in mind when planning your diet friendly night out.
For your convenience, I have categorized each restaurant by their ability to meet a specific diet. So, if you would please, refer to the brightly colored graphic below!
This comprehensive guide could help you plan any upcoming brunch outings, business meetings or nights out with friends and family! But, let’s face it, this list doesn’t exactly make your mouth water. Once I toss out a few yummy examples, you’ll find yourself craving a gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan snack!
Snacks. Let’s talk about snacks. In fact, I’m currently craving a gluten-free Peanut Butter Stack Cookie with Chocolate Ganache from Federal Coffee Co. See mouthwatering photo below!
In the mood for something vegetarian, and a little hardier than a simple snack? Bar Bosco offers an array of pizzas, including this, olive oil, nepetella mushrooms, caramelized leeks and house made mozzarella creation. Take all my money Bar Bosco, take all my money.
Do you know what sounds absolutely divine? The vegan falafel platter from Oy Vey Deli. Homemade flatbread topped with whipped hummus, olives, Israeli salad and falafel? Sign me up, Oy Vey!
Over the last few years, restaurants have opened their menus to those with a gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan diet. This increased diet friendly awareness makes it possible for everyone to enjoy the dining out experience in Terre Haute. Many of us may see these specific diets as ‘fashionable’ or ‘popular’ but for some, these diets are imperative to their physical health. The more diet friendly options local restaurants offer, the more business they drum up. More business, more food, more fun!
