The Wild Cow

The Wild Cow restaurant is easily one of Nashville’s favorite vegan and vegetarian restaurants. Their menu ranges from a caesar salad to a French quarter dip to chipotle seitan tacos (all of which I have had and are amazing!!!). With their goal of “bring[ing] people together for the love of good food in a fun & relaxed environment, while supporting [the] community and organizations that promote our philosophies” it was a no brainer for Party Like A Diabetic to partner with them.

While Melanie, the Co-Owner, was discussing this venture with her staff one of her amazing Managers, Heather, spoke up and willingly took on the big task of analyzing the menu and obtaining carb counts. Part of the reason that Heather volunteered, besides having a big heart, was that she herself has diabetes and wanted to help others who face the dreaded “guesstimating” while eating out.
