Would you still bring your food then? Would you trust any restaurants to prepare your vegan food?

They oftenget confused by the fact that they are almost half protein themselves.

I don't LIKE doing it, but sometimes I make a snap judgement, and decide they might not take my 'faddy diet' choices seriously, so sometimes it is easier to just say I am allergic. I did actually have an incident where I prepped my non-vegan boyfriend at the time that I sometimes did this, so if they asked if I was allergic, that 'yes' was sometimes the easiest response. By the time we were in the restaurant, and I'd spoken with the staff, I decided they were most likely to be respectful and understanding of my requirements, so that if they asked me, I'd just say 'no, I'm not allergic, I just choose to live like this'. They did ask, and at exactly the same time I said 'no .....', he said 'yes'. Oh dear! Oh well!Enhydra Lutris wrote:A side note: Saying you're allergic to food when you're not is IMO just as bad as most people here think it is to say that you're vegetarian and then eat fish.
