As a new vegetarian, I get lots of questions that easily annoy me and I’m sure most vegetarians get asked the same things. So, I’ve compiled a post of questions that I get asked and things that I’m tired of hearing about being a vegetarian. I hope that you find this humorous!
1.) So, do you like, eat chicken?
If I can remember right a chicken is considered an animal or “meat” in some people’s eyes, and vegetarians do not eat meat – so no!
2.) What about fish?
Fish are friends, not food. Cheesy reference, I know, but it’s true! Fish are animals, so therefore I don’t eat seafood.
3.) How do you get your protein?
Well, you see, there are these magical things called legumes. They have about as much protein as meat does, without the cruelty.
4.) Don’t you get bored of only eating vegetables?
Vegetarians can eat more than just vegetables, thank you very much. but no! I don’t get bored. You can prepare meals a multitude of ways so you’ll never get bored.
5.) Do you eat eggs? because those technically aren’t an animal because they aren’t fertilized.
I don’t agree with your statement but I personally try not eat eggs. I only eat eggs if they’re in something that’s already made, like cake.
6.) What about your significant other? Do they eat meat? Does it make it difficult?
My boyfriend does eat meat and I really can’t control that. Some people have their minds made up of what they want to eat and their morals and stuff, we’ve been together for 5 years and I wouldn’t dump him over his food preferences. I’m more concerned about what I’m consuming rather than what others are consuming.
7.) How do you do it? – It’s pretty simple. You just don’t eat meat.
If you’re a vegetarian, do you agree that you’re tired of hearing these things? Let me know in the comments below!
Thanks for reading, as always <3
