Show Notes

Can vegetarians and vegans live and eat happily in the City of Destiny? Today's guest Keryn Giguere is here with tips and tricks for vegetarians and vegans in Tacoma. Whether you're interested in dining out somewhere fancy or everyday eating, keryn giguere One of the most challenging parts of eating vegetarian or vegan anywhere is other people's judgement. "People have a stereotypical idea of what I eat," says Keryn. "I eat what you eat, just without meat. The hardest thing about being vegetarian or vegan is other people's perceptions of it." When you're starting to eat vegetarian "Do what works for you, it's ok to mess up," says Keryn. "It's ok not to be perfect." According to Keryn, Tacoma still needs "mainstream vegetarian and vegan junk food" like Pizza Pie in Seattle, but we also need a date night restaurant like Seattle's Plum restaurant (from the owners of Quickie Too!).
