These will make your life so much easier.

1. Check if the veggie burger on a restaurant's menu is homemade.

Hint: If the burger is the only vegetarian option on the menu, it's likely to be a store-bought, slightly defrosted bland slice of hell. It's best to just skip it.

4. If people give you crap for being a vegetarian, take it with a grain of salt.

Your energy will be better spent on other things besides worrying about the foul attitude coming from other people. You do you.

5. Keep hummus in your fridge at all times, because you should be putting it in and on everything.

Use it as a spread on sandwiches. Use it as a fancy dip at parties. Use it as a not-fancy dip when you're home alone and need to use up the last of your weird pretzels.

11. If you're trying new cuisine and have NO idea what something is, be sure to google any words or dishes you're unfamiliar with.

12. You'll really want to, but try not to just load up on pasta all the time.

Pasta is both easy to cook at home and find on a menu, but try not to rely on it as an entire food group. Carbs and more carbs don't make a balanced diet.
