Impartiality towards vegetarians

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)

kg-26How 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 πŸ™‚ Thank God for those salads and breads.

kg-21And that warm mulled wine also sort of gave me company for the whole meal. The best wine I have tasted till now. I never knew that warm wine with spices could taste that good.

kg-23I 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 πŸ˜‰

I couldn’t resist adding this quote πŸ˜‰

β€œI did not become a vegetarian for my health, I did it for the health of the chickens.”
― Isaac Bashevis Singer

Including this post as part of JusJoJan too πŸ™‚

  1. In Norway we have a saying “there is much good food in good drinks” (or something..)! That’s why the mulled wine was so good πŸ˜‰

    I get your problem, not that I am a vegetarian- I’m more the opposite. My diet mainly contains carbs from meat, protein food & veggies. (I actually get sick by everything else! Don’t ask how christmas has been for me.)

    I often have the biggest problem when being invited for dinner or coffee.
    I can’t eat the cake, pasta or rice. Whatever people serve.

    It’s really hard to be the odd one out, when everyone else goes “just have a small piece! It won’t harm!”
    – well, it will make me twist in pain for the next 12-48hours, might throw up or feel in general sick.
