Atkins and the Vegan Diet???

Ben7643 | Nov 14, 2007 08:51 PM

Well the title kinda says it all. I have a friend, my BEST friend coming into town for a week. I used to be vegan, obviously I am not anymore. I actually started the atkins diet 3 days ago and plan to stick to it for a few more weeks. So you see the predicament is my friend is vegan. I retained some parts of my old vegan ways since I dropped them 2 years ago, but don't eat cheese, or dairy intentionally anymore. So that leaves me with meat and light veggies. He won't touch meat, or dairy.

Where do we eat!?!?!?!?!?!!!

If I was going out by myself i'd get sashimi at my fav sushi place or a big juicy steak. I don't want to offend him though by dragging him to steakhouse after steakhouse or sushi place after sushi place unless they have a good number of vegan/veggie things on the menu.

I have a feeling this is gonna be a tough one but you all are up for the challenge.......... right?????
