Rejoice In Vegan Dining Without Gagging On Tofu And Blackened Nodules

Resolving to eat healthy doesn't mean you all have to give up taste. So says Hiram Clement, co-director of the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Fla., a health center and spa for the raw vegan lifestyle.

"These are real restaurants and real people would like them. They're not tofu and rice joints." He shares some favorite spots serving uncooked, plant-based dishes or vegetarian food.

Christopher's Kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens is where Clemens goes because it's near his home in South Florida. A favorite dish: the Santa Barbara salad with arugula, romaine, dates, beets, tomato, red pepper, avocado and almonds with an orange poppy seed dressing.
