If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight, have you thought about visiting a local vegetarian restaurant?

Traditionally, a vegetarian diet is lower in fat and calories than a meat based diet. More veggies, more fruit, and no meat = less calories. Of course, people do it for health and other lifestyle reasons as well. If you’re not familiar with cooking vegetarian food, then the next best thing is to head to your closest vegetarian restaurant.

    These may all be sources of cheap vegetarian food, but many of these restaurants serve meat and are thus not “vegetarian restaurants.” It would be more honest and accurate if you titled this, “Top 25 Inexpensive Vegetarian-friendly Restaurants in Los Angeles.”

    As usual, it’s as if the Valley doesn’t even exist, even though over a third of the population of LA lives here. Why do I even bother to read these Best __ in LA stories? They never fail to disappoint.

    @Name, I am sorry about the Valley. Personally, I don’t get out there as often as I would like, but I promise to try harder to get there more often. :)

    Are you serious all vegetables? I am the kind of person who cannot eat without meat on my meal. I actually had an attempt before to turn into vegetarian and my God it weakens me. I only last for a day and the next day I was totally a veggie just in bed and strength less. Well it is a choice and too bad it is not my thing.

    @Alicia, Everyone finds their way, as far as food is concerned. I have no trouble eating vegetarian a couple of times a week. Split pea soup and big salad is great.

    Maybe you need to look for better veggie alternatives. :)
