8 face-palm moments of being plant-based/transitioning to vegan.

  1. Finding out your favourite sauce/condiment isn’t vegan “What do you mean my spicy tomato pesto contains 7% cheese? ITS PESTO :(“
  2. Realising that your favourite fruits are never in season where you live, or prohibitively expensive (read: grapes and berries UGH MY WALLET)
  3. When you realise you eat so much damn food that you try to grow your own organic veggie patch at home, and fail miserably.
  4. When your SO/family/friends have surprisingly strong, negative reactions to your change of lifestyle.
  5. Having to look like a troll because they don’t sell vegan/non-animal-tested makeup in your country.
  6. Having plain beans and rice for dinner (again) because you’re broke from buying expensive fruit and importing makeup.
  7. When foreign restaurants don’t understand the concept of vegan, and so deliver your vegetarian pasta with cheese on top.
  8. When your dog starts begging for cucumber and veggie scraps, rather than just meat scraps.

    My watermelons didn't even make it to the size of tennis balls before the plant died :(

  1. When a restaurant has 7 salads on the menu but none of them are vegan, but they tell you they will make you a special one, and then put honey in the dressing! 😦

    • YES! Oh my gosh, all of the yes. I also try to eat the most minimal fat I can, and even the herbal dressings often seem have a huge oil content.
