When people hear that one-half of Girls Gone Hungry doesn’t eat meat, they often wonder how we manage to run a food blog when very few of the restaurants we go to are strictly vegetarian. To be honest, it’s been a breeze! Although there are many vegetarian and vegan-specific restaurants that are near and dear to our hearts, most of our favorite dishes come from non-vegetarian restaurants. We have found the restaurant industry has been expanding their menus to include options for everyone, some even going so far as to offer secondary menus for people with food restrictions. We could not be more appreciative and have outlined a list of our favorite veggie meals from both meat and vegetarian friendly locations in Metro Detroit.
