... is that I have to put up with the stupid question, "Well, then what do you eat?" I feel like this should be a given, no? I mean, a vegetarian is someone who doesn't eat meat, fish, or the byproducts of meat and fish. (Technically a vegetarian who eats fish is a pescetarian). That seems pretty straight forward to me. Am I missing something? Or am I just overstating the intelligence of my friends and family? :/
I hate hate question!!!! I mean I've had people try to shove chicken down my throat. Its like they are losing humane qualities. They should have some respect for my decision. Terrible People
One kid asked me if I just ate, like, tomatoes and lettuce......It's funny how many things are vegan when you actually start to look for it though.
I've heard that question so many times in so many various ways. Yes, it should be simple...Apparently, it is not.
Some people are like, "So, you're a vegetarian? That's crazy! What do you eat?"
I explain it to them.
Then they say, "Oh, so you must eat a PB&J sandwich, like, every day, huh?"
I explain that I'm allergic to peanuts and peanut products.
Their reaction: "OH MY GOD! You're a vegetarian AND you can't eat peanuts!?!?!"
I nod yes.
"WHAT DO YOU EAT!?!?!"
The same exact thing I told you the first time, idiot (excuse my meanness. I'm not usually so hard on people)!
oh i couldnt live if i couldnt have peanut butter. its my comfort food. and this year i have been a vegi for 4 years. but its getting to the point were my mom is saying "eat the meat , eat the side dishes, or dont eat at all.
i really dont want to make her mad for not eating what she cooks, but meat just isnt for me.
I get that question a lot being vegan and I always just reply "other vegans, they taste better" I just get strange looks
