Vegan Options

I like to eat in restaurant but I do not see more than two options on menu and sometimes even that requires 30 minute conversation with chef.
The cost of this is not just inconvenience but social also. I usually skip workplace related meetings that are at restaurant (and farewell and welcome lunches as well).
As Seattle is port city, you cannot escape from seafood (and other side effectsL)
I usually chat with restaurant manager about adding more vegan options but I usually get response as ‘Send mail to corporate’.
I understand my other options as PCC and Wholefood, but what do I do when my co worker who is leaving, likes to eat at specific place and they specialize in sea food?
In order for people to ‘consider’ vegan life, they need to see more options so I have started emailing some chains.
So first one on my list are Panera and Pallino

What do you do in such situations.
Please share your ideas and resources….

Mean Girl?

It is funny that I was just thinking about nasty comments form my daughter's classmates....
and saw this this  post on my reader.
My 7 year old girl has to face many situations at school where other girls will say mean things to her. and as mother sometimes I feel I am not to guiding her right. Like yesterday, some girl was teasing her (you are looser and will always be looser because my daughter’s favorite food was favored by only two other kids in class). My response to my daughter was ‘ignore the other girl’.
When I think back, I was that kind girl who did not know how to respond in language so I took shelter with books. I am always looking for advise/input in terms of how to manage this….
Books are fine and I am so grateful to this to a extent when I see my paycheck....
But I wish I could enjoy more of my time at school (and hope my daughter does)

Party Food

I am experimenting more with raw Vegan food now a days so I look for more and more information on web. vegan planet is not technically raw but it does provide much healthier options than I am used to ...
