When we (friends) were taken for a Christmas Brunch treat to a very expensive restaurant by my friend little did I know I would have to survive only on the appetizers and salads. Here is a glimpse of the brunch menu (sort of a buffet)
How many vegetarian items do you see there ? If I did count correct that day it was 2. Yes just 2 out of the whole lot. Being the only vegetarian in the whole group, I was pitied that day by every one 😦 , but thank fully the whole salad and appetizer counter made up for the lack of other items. Among the items displayed down, almost 70% were veggies 🙂 Thank God for those salads and breads.
I had so much of those salads and appetizers that I did not have enough space to try the lovely desserts (even in spite of me being a pure dessert person). The only dessert I tasted was the German Cake of some sort with strong chocolate favor which was too good to ignore.
At times being a vegetarian is a tough job. The choices are very limited and when all your friends are non vegetarians, it adds more peer pressure 😉
I couldn’t resist adding this quote 😉
“I did not become a vegetarian for my health, I did it for the health of the chickens.”
