6. Don't try to convince people that your meat alternatives taste like meat.
Again, no one is falling for that.
Tofu cannot and will not ever taste anything like meat.
Just talk about food like everyone talks about food. You don’t need to preface every recipe you try by clarifying that you used fake chicken made from fungus, even if it does actually taste weirdly good (shoutout to Quorn!). (It’s probably also best to save all the nutritional yeast talk for your veggie friends. That’s another weird one.)
I may be starting to get repetitive here, but that’s because all of these tips boil down to pretty much the same thing: Think about others and do your best to be a good person. They’re the same guidelines that every human should try to follow, really.
7. Finally, remember: Eating is not a competition.
At the end of the day, there’s really no point in comparing yourself to others — not to meat-eaters, vegans, or even other vegetarians.
Everyone’s doing their best.
We’re all just trying to build a society, ya know?
As you go forth in your vegetarian adventures, keep these tips and mind and you’re sure to be the least annoying vegetarian on the block. Happy veggin’!
