"Veggy" or "veggie" is the name that has been used for the growing number of people who have chosen to adhere to a vegetarian diet. Not every veggy eats the same sorts of food. A veggy combines a diet of fruit and vegetables with other selected sources of protein.
A lacto-ovo-pesco-vegetarian will eat dairy products, eggs, fish and chicken, but not red meat. Lacto vegetarians have meals that contain dairy products, in addition to grains, fruits and vegetables. Ovo-lacto vegetarians are willing to eat both dairy products and eggs. Those vegetarians who will eat only foods that come from plants are called vegans.
If you are going on a date in the County of Los Angeles, then there is a good chance that your date might be some sort of vegetarian, i.e. a veggy. Los Angeles, with its diversity of religious organizations, contains many people whose eating practices have been prescribed by the Hindu, Buddhist or Sikh religion. Such faith groups require their adherents to stick-to a vegetarian diet.
Vegetarian singles prefer to dine at a place that caters to the veggy. Men in Los Angeles County derive the benefit of having a wide selection of places that serve food made for the veggy. In fact, the Los Angeles Times recently ran a story about one such restaurant.
This story highlighted the healthful and tasty menu at Govinda's, a restaurant that lies in "The Heart of Screenland." Govinda's, located in Culver City, CA, occupies a space that sits just a half-mile from Sony Studios. It is also just blocks from Culver Hotel, the place where the munchkins stayed during the filming of The Wizard of Oz.
Govinda's gives a veggy the opportunity to fill his or her plate with lentils, potatoes, brown rice, pasta, chick-peas, okra, spinach, sweet potatoes and other special treats. Govinda's sometimes offers a very unique type of cake. It is a cake that has no eggs and no refined sugar.
Govinda's has tables outside as well as inside. Govinda's also offers very reasonable prices. Parking might be a problem for the visitor to Govinda's, but this Culver City restaurant is an excellent choice for someone whose date has dropped a reminder that vegetarian singles prefer a veggy meal.
Of course a date does not want to eat at the same veggy restaurant every day. Fortunately, Los Angeles County has many eating places that will meet the needs of a veggy. There are many stands that sell falafel. This is a Mid Eastern-style of sandwich, one that contains eggplant and tomatoes.
A practicing vegetarian in Los Angeles might also enjoy a bowl of ashte reshte at one of the local Persian restaurants. If a couple is dining at a Persian restaurant during the month of March, then vegetarian preferences might be satisfied with the holiday fare, sabzi polo. This is the traditional fare for the Persian New Year.
Another culture that has given Los Angeles many good vegetarian dishes is the culture of Thailand. Thai food adds variety to the strict vegetarian diet. Thai foods provide a satisfying meal for the vegetarian single.
