Meatless in Miami? Yes, despite the thousands of carnivorous offerings it is possible to be treated to the taste of fresh greens, fruits and soy. Feel free to return to the basics and indulge in a meatless meal at several South Florida restaurants that offer more than lard-free servings. They also offer a new way of life.

    One other place with great vegan/vegetarian choices is Pizza Fusion. It may be a little pricey , but they have excellent/healthy options and BONUS they are earth friendly. They had a program that if you brought back the pizza box, you got a discount. Even my meat eating hubbie said that Pizza Fusion was a nice alternative to the typical greasy cheese and /or meat pizza. And we were very impressed by the service and friendliness of the staff. I raise my children to have respect for the planet, and love that a place we eat at helps to enrich those teachings. I went vegetarian quite some time ago due to severe stomach problems, it seemed like every time I ate meat I would throw up, on a hunch, I gave it up and the problems went away. There are just too many risks meat. Even if you’re a meat eater like my hubbie, try to go a couple nights meatless, pasta, veggie, fruits, etc. I think you will like how you feel and love saving money.

    Next time you come up with a list of the best vegetarian restaurants, perhaps listing VEGETARIAN restaurants–and vegetarian restaurants only–will give your list a bit more weight.
