Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

Create Your Restaurant Menu Cover

By Zack Dobbins

Are you thinking of starting your own restaurant? Or do you wish to design a restaurant menu cover? Designing is a fun and enjoyable activity which is meant to show how creative and unique you and your restaurant are. Before beginning to design a menu cover however, there are certain things you should consider:

What is your restaurant?s theme? Are you planning on a restaurant that is fun and comfortable for the whole family? This should be shown in your menu cover. Are you planning for a fine dining restaurant? Then make sure that the menu cover you create will show your customers the great service and special food that your restaurant has to offer.

Nobody wants a thoughtlessly done cover; if your menu cover shows some detail and is generally attractive, this will give the customers an idea of the careful planning of your restaurant, and that they will expect the same service to be given to them. Though seemingly irrelevant, your restaurant menu cover will actually say a lot to your customers.

Creating a menu cover does not mean you have to put painstaking details; it simply should show a bit of careful planning, a dash of fun, and a lot of creativity. Normally, restaurant menu covers are pretty similar; this is alright for a regular restaurant, but you want to give your customers the idea that your restaurant is different from others. Whether fun or a serious, a menu cover should immediately draw customers in; making them feel comfortable and excited to taste the dishes that you offer.

The usual things you consider in creating your menu cover should be the font and its size, the colours, as well as the graphics or images you want to put. Your menu cover can also be plain, if you want a classic, elegant look. The size of your menu cover depends on the number of dishes you are offering, as well as the images you want to place inside.

Placing pictures inside your menu is a nice idea, as it will give your customers an idea of what the food is like, especially if they have not tried it before, or if they have forgotten what it is. Fun images will show a fun cover and restaurant, while elegant frames will show a classic fine dining restaurant.

When designing your menu cover, do not feel as if it is unnecessary; you do not want a simple list of the food you will be serving. Nor should you think that it is a tiresome project; a beautiful and effective menu cover can be simple. Make sure you do not create a complicated menu cover that has too many designs in it; this will only serve to confuse your customers.

Whatever design you have in mind, and whatever theme your restaurant has, make sure that designing your menu cover is a fun activity for you, as it should show how unique your restaurant is, and how creative you are. After you have made a nice menu cover, you will see the smiles in your customers? faces!
