#GGBlogChallenge – 5 Things Vegetarians Are Sick Of Hearing

Okay, so the prompt for today’s #GGBlogChallenge was about favourite recipes. I went off into a brief carbohydrate-laden daydream, then remembered that literally every single one of my favourite recipes includes chickpeas, so it would be a pretty boring list: chickpea salad. Chickpea burgers. Chickpeas.

I started thinking about that age-old question I’ve been sick of hearing since I was old enough to be questioned about my moral food-related choices. I’ve been a vegetarian my entire life and have actually never eaten meat or fish. If you’re a vegetarian, let me know if you’ve heard some of these bangers. If you’re not – STOP ASKING ME THESE THINGS.

“What, so you’ve never eaten bacon??!!” No. I haven’t. I have, however, hand-fed piglets at a farm, so I think my interactions with our porcine friends are more positive and life-affirming. Also, I have Quorn bacon sandwiches on Christmas Morning so who’s the real winner here…?

“I couldn’t be a vegetarian.” That’s interesting. I’m not asking you to be one.

“Oh, I was a vegetarian, for like, 2 months!” Cool. I toyed with swimming lessons, scoobidous (remember those bad boys?!) and Yu-Gi-Oh for about the same amount of time.

“Beeeef. Haaaam. Porrrrk. Dead animaaaals!” Usually accompanied by manic laughter, with the possibility of a tuna sandwich being waved in my face –  this one is literally SO idiotic. I don’t even think I have to explain why.

“So what do you actually eat?” Broken glass. Microwaves. Blankets. Moths. Keyrings. Grass. Does that answer your question?

    “So what do you eat?” is definitely one I get sick to death of hearing! Like there’s nothing else to eat in the world except dead animal flesh!! 😊

      I always say “exactly the same as you… just without the meat”. So frustrating! :’) x
