Follow Alwill’s tricks to mastering the menu

• Hunt down great restaurant­s and cafes renowned for their veg-based dishes.

• Ask for a simple swap with your meal. For instance, you could say, “Rather than the chicken or steak on the salad, do you have a substantia­l veg option you can pop on there instead?” This is only a small tweak for a busy kitchen.

• Suggest getting shared plates of plant-based meals with your friends. This offers variety not only to you but to others at the table.

• Entrées can offer more plant-based options so consider ordering two entrées for your main if it works better for you.

• Prepare to be flexible and open.
