You can just remove the meat from this, right?
Um, no. That’s not how it works. Vegetarians do not ingest meat. We do not want our food to contain meat. So please do me a favor and don't cook my food with your meat.
How do you get your protein?
Meat is not the only way to get protein. It occurs naturally in lots of food. You know like nuts, dairy, soy, and beans.
So do you eat fish?
What do you not understand about "meat free"? If I ate fish, I would have told you I was a pescetarian (people who eat fish but no other meat products).
I could never live without meat/I once went without meat for x days.
Oh my gosh, good for you! We’ve been doing this for years. We’ve practiced self-discipline for years. We are the ones that scour menus and labels to make sure we can eat meat free.
What are you going to do if I eat meat in front of you?
Um, nothing? No, seriously you can eat what you want. You’ve made your choice and we’ve made ours.
So you just eat vegetables?
Yep. Just vegetables. Nothing else. Make it rain salads!
Do you want a bite of my burger?
LOL. Sure. Then we’ll puke on you. No, but really, why is this joke funny?
Isn’t that really unhealthy?
Yes doctor. Your professional understanding of my dietary needs is so correct that I am shook now. Utterly shook.
