I think I posted this elsewhere before but when I wen to Chile on LAN, the only offering they had was a ham sandwich. I was quite amazed. Since we were on a couple different flights, I got offered a ham sandwich 3 or 4 times.

I think it was United? I'm having trouble remembering. Actually I am having trouble remembering which flight it was even. I do remember asking if the red sauce had cheese in it and then throwing up.

Damn whey powder. And on that note Damn companies that change the ingredients in a biscuit. And damn companies that change the ingredients to include whey powder. I've been eating the same biscuits like crazy the past two months and when I first checked they didn't have whey powder and now they do. Not impressed.

Oh no! Which biscuits?

That happened to me when I was halfway through a bag of Walkers salt & vinegar crisps. I think they took the whey out again though.

Some digestives that they get in work. Not sure of the make but I am full sure the first time I read the label there was no milk products. It is explaining why I've been having asthma attacks lately.

Aww, gross! I have had people ask me in earnest whether pepperoni comes from an animal, but all of those people were children.

Papa John's used to use single letter ordering codes for toppings, and I love pineapple and onion pizzas (hey IT'S GOOD OK?). After a few pepperoni pizzas, I learned to rattle off "I'd like a pineapple--the ordering code for that is N not P--and onion pizza with no cheese. Again the ordering code is N O, and I do not want cheese of any kind."

It actually took quite a long time to order, because his idea of normal ingredients was different from mine, because I'm used to our amazingly amazing pizza place. What do you mean, they don't have artichoke hearts?

I once went out with a GROUP OF VEGANS, and did a complex pizza order, and they were horrified that I'd asked for capers, because they are fish. VEGANS!

There's a new vegan deli in my town now, very hip with Ipads mounted to the wall for surfing and stuff. They got told on their facebook page how elitist they are and that they sell basically vokü food (vokü is the german equivalent of food nod bombs? I dunno) but at horrendous prices. I went there and it's very nice, they sell Ferrero Rafaelo in vegan (yay!). I mean, so what? Not every vegan is punk rock, some are just regular people who want to have nice (and yes, expensive) things to eat once in a while. Stop the vegan-bashing, vegans!

People at my work are always bringing in baked goods then give me this "I'm sorry it's not vegan", guilty look. One former coworker used to go to Whole Foods and get me a vegan muffin whenever she brought in baked goods. That always made me feel good.


This is my pet peeve too! "You can't eat this" - I absolutely could but I won't. Though frankly I quite like the excuse not to eat bake-sale stuff every single day.

i feel the opposite. i'd much rather have people tell me "you can't eat this!" than "come on, you could try it just this once. it's a choice right? not an allergy or anything" the latter seems to happen more often than the former. I don't especially like to make a big deal about it being a choice because to most people a choice is something you can choose not to do at any given time.

Walkers S&V are now milk-free! Thank goodness. I hate not being able to find s&v crisps. The ones they do in Starbucks are nice, but, expensive.

Talking of S&V crisps. Was halfway through lunch today when I noticed my bag of Asda crisps contain milk. Seeeeriously. They must have changed the recipe. Being casein intolerant I am now stuck with a nasty stomach :(

Neighbor: "Bees don't die when they make honey. So I don't see why you wouldn't eat honey."

Me: "Cows don't die when they give milk and I still don't drink it."

"Oooh."

Granted, if honey pops up in a bread and I've already bought it without realizing, I'm not gonna throw it away, I still eat it. But when people say shiitake like that, thinking, "Aha! I've foiled their logic!", I find it a little insulting. Even mom said to the neighbor, "Ha, Gym got you on that."

I make salad dressings all the time with veganaise. I will be eating it at work and it never fails. Somebody walks up talking to me, looks down and exclaims "Hey! You can't eat that!" Another big one is somebody seeing me eating a sandwich that has thinly sliced apples in it and exclaiming "Caught you! That's cheese right!? Caught you!" Uhh. No.

It's kippers. I used to get them confused as a kid along with shallots and scallops. Heh.

Those of you who put up with non-vegan showers/birthdays/whatever parties thrown in your honor are way more tolerant than I would be. Fork that. If it's for YOU, it should be 100% vegan. The end. I can't imagine going to my own birthday party and not being able to eat the cake. What the hell is that? Talk about making you feel like an outsider at your own event.

I made all the food for my own baby shower (thrown by my older sisters) to ensure that it would all be vegan, and when one of them kept asking if she could contribute something, I told her she could bring chips if she really wanted. She brought Cheetos and sour cream and onion chips. With all the vegan chips in the world, that's what she got. And she brought ranch dressing for the vegetables, because she "doesn't like hummus".
