Food & Diet: Adopting Change

Why this resource is helpful:

Change is not always easy, especially when it comes to food.

My early attempts at adopting a vegetarian lifestyle were frustrated in various ways.

One of them was figuring out how to share food with friends.

Dining out with friends was now a problem.

No one, it seemed, knew what to do with me in terms of cooking.

Would they pretend to forget my non-meat-eating status when they ordered pepperoni pizza?

Should they feign ignorance when I ask about pork fat in the pea soup?

Would I really be able to tell it was meat sauce if they took the meatballs out before serving it?

I got quite good at ordering linguini with olive oil and garlic...and then pretending to savor it, while watching everyone else eat their meat sauce and tender veal parmesan.
Quoted From: https://creativeholisticcounseling.com/adopting-change/

"I should probably tell you at this point that the long-term choice to be vegetarian was entirely pragmatic, and I went kicking and screaming. Originally, when I was eighteen, I thought being vegetarian would be a neat philosophical diversion. But now, it has less to do with ethics, ideals, or beliefs, and more to do with my health. For me, the choice to maintain this lifestyle has been solely due to being graced with a delicate and finicky digestive system. Maybe you"ve had to make dietary changes for your own health reasons."
