Most restaurants can at least do a plain spaghetti with sauce, or french fries, or just a plain salad.
Good luck!
I'm the same, definitely lactose intolerant now. A few years ago I was still transitioning and flip flopping between eating vegan and ovo lacto every now and then, I hadn't eaten any dairy for a few months and then got drunk and randomly had a couple pieces of cheese pizza. BAD idea, I got stomach cramps and had awful bathroom issues for the rest of the night, not fun... I haven't had the same experience with eggs but I never tested it either, I wasn't a fan of them to begin with so they were the easiest thing to avoid.

Veal calves are a byproduct of the dairy industry, they have no use for the male dairy calves so they are fattened and slaughtered. Every time you drink milk or eat cheese you are supporting the veal industry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veal
Quote:
The modern veal industry has strong connections with the dairy industry.[8][9] To produce milk, cows must be lactating, and to be lactating, they must get pregnant and give birth. Approximately 50% of all calves born in dairy farming are male. Since only female calves are used to produce milk, use of male dairy calves is limited, outside of breeding.[10][11]
The veal industry's integration with the dairy industry goes beyond the purchase of surplus calves. It also buys large amounts of milk byproducts. Almost 70% of veal feeds (by weight) are milk products. Most popular are whey and whey protein concentrate (WPC), byproducts of the manufacture of cheese. Milk byproducts are sources of protein and lactose. Skimmed milk powder, casein, buttermilk powder and other forms of milk byproducts are used from time to time.[12]

Ugh, that kind of drives me crazy! It's really irresponsible too, even when you don't take vegans/vegetarians into account there are still people with all kinds of allergies and food intolerances out there. They should always describe the food in plain language so you know what you're getting.

I remember once I went to Denny's with family and I ordered a side garden salad with my veggie burger and the salad came absolutely covered in shredded cheddar, you could barely see any green there was so much cheese on it. I thought that was especially funny since I had been careful to make sure my veggie burger didn't have any cheese or mayo on it, you'd think they would have realized maybe I don't want to eat a pound of cheese when I order a side salad.
