Vegetarians often have trouble finding good quality food at restaurants. Most of us usually get stuck with a side salad or a black bean burger that tastes like it's been microwaved. Luckily for vegans and vegetarians living in the 734, we have many local and corporate restaurants to eat actual good food at.

I have already written about restaurant chains in the local area for vegetarians. Before you check out the chains, read below about all of the local restaurants you can eat at as a vegetarian.

1. Veg-O-Rama

This new casual diner takes the cake for best vegetarian and vegan food in the area. Located on Cross Street near Eastern Michigan University, Veg-O-Rama serves ALL vegetarian food with the option to make much of it vegan. The restaurant serves Indian food, breakfast items, and a bunch of different sandwiches.

With super low prices, this is the greatest place to go if you are on a budget. The ingredients are plant-based and the portions are fair, making this perfect if you are on a diet! Check out their Facebook page to learn more about my favorite place to eat.

2. Tower Inn Cafe

Tower Inn is a classic for all EMU Eagles so of course they would add plenty of vegetarian options on their menu! When you go to Tower Inn, or order online, vegetarian items will be noted as such.

They have pastas, sandwiches, and pizzas for non-meat eaters. My favorite dish is the pesto panini!

If you haven't yet been to Tower Inn, you should head over on Tuesday for their trivia night or Wednesday for karaoke. They also have jazz music on Thursdays and live musicians on Fridays.

3. Lucky Garden

For those of you who don't know, Lucky Garden is a Chinese restaurant with plenty of tofu and vegetable plates to choose from! Check out their menu and get it delivered to your home whenever!

4. Maiz Mexican Cantina

This restaurant is amazing for vegetarians! The restaurant has vegetarian quesadillas, burritos, and my personal favorite... tacos. MAIZ offers three different vegetarian tacos (that according to their restaurant have won awards for their greatness): cauliflower, avocado, and potato! Try them all on Taco Tuesday where tacos are $2 a piece.

5. The Wurst Bar

While this is technically a bar, they do have a good amount of vegetarian sandwiches and sides to go with to go with your drinks! My personal favorite dish is the loaded tater tots!

The Wurst Bar is also super fun... they have bingo nights and games to play!

6. Stufd

facebook.com

As an EMU student, you have not lived until you try this Chipotle-like burrito joint that is open until 3 a.m. on the weekends. If you need a late night snack or a quick, filling dinner... go to Stufd for a great deal!

P.S. They also have amazing churros for dessert!

7. Arbor Brewing Company - Corner Brewery

facebook.com

While this is a brewery (and if you're of age you should definitely get a beer), this Ann Arbor company offers many dishes for vegans and vegetarians. Give this place a try if you like craft beers and good times with live music on Monday.

The dish featured in the photo above is actually the restaurant's vegan chili!

So, my vegetarian friends, if you have not done so already, try out these restaurants! You will NOT be disappointed.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Do you know a college senior who has graduated during the COVID-19 pandemic? I graduated high school this year and I can imagine how upsetting it must feel for college seniors who have accomplished so much but weren't able to celebrate the way they wanted to.

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

I never considered myself a cat person, but Chess immediately stole my heart.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.
