You’re a Vegetarian? What Do You Eat?

You’re a Vegetarian? What Do You Eat?” I actually hear this question about half the time I tell someone I am a vegetarian. I have to say, I gave up explaining it years ago.

Now I tell them, “Nothing. There’s nothing for a vegetarian to eat. And I’m so hungry!”

I don't know what the meat-eating people had for dinner last night, but this was mine: sauteéd potatoes, green beans, mini-portabello mushrooms, and onions in a thyme-infused olive oil.

  1. If you would take out those fungi, this meat eater would scarf that down! Yum. Those green beans remind me of the yummy ones on the Chinese buffet.

  2. When I was a kid, I thought “vegetarian” meant you only ate vegetables… But I had cousins who were vegetarians so I quickly learned otherwise. Since then, I’ve met many non-meat eaters, each with his/her own set of rules/guidelines and each with his/her own set of reasons for doing it.

    Like Jeff above, I’d gladly eat what’s depicted in your image above, with the exception of the fungi.

  3. I really want to be a vegetarian because I love animals. No wait. That’s not what I mean. I don’t mind killing the animals to eat them but I don’t want to be a veterinarian. Maybe I should just think about this a bit longer and get back to you on it later.
