Posted on

1. You'll soon work out that 50% of your freezer must be filled with Linda McCartney sausages at all times.

You'll experiment with Cauldron sausages at one point, but you'll always return to Linda.

2. And the other 50% must be full of hash browns.

When you're a vegetarian, being hungover means eating a lot of beige foods.

3. If one of you becomes vegetarian during the course of your relationship, everyone will ask whether you only did it because your S.O. is a vegetarian.


They won't consider the fact that you have the capacity to make your own decisions.


5. If one of you is a new vegetarian, you'll experiment will all kinds of meat alternatives for a while.

Which the more experienced vegetarian among you will find endlessly funny.

6. Eating out with friends often means ordering matching mushroom risottos.

If you're lucky, you might have the choice of matching mushroom risottos or matching stuffed peppers.

7. And if you go out with a group and order sharing plates, the meat eaters will end up eating your mains as their sides.

They'll eat your patatas bravas and make you pay for their cured meats. It always happens.


9. The same will happen whenever you order takeaway as part of a group.

And if you eat even one measly prawn cracker, everyone will have a lot of opinions about it.

10. Which is why discovering new vegetarian restaurants together will soon become your favourite thing to do.

11. And you'll often eat half of two mains each, so you get to try more of the menu.

12. You'll also start collecting veggie cookbooks.

There's no point buying normal cookbooks that you can only use half of when there are two of you.


13. You'll share a bottle of multivitamins and remind each other to take them.

You'll battle your potential B12 deficiency together.

16. Unless you serve them quorn. In which case someone will tell you it tastes like "cheap meat".

Thanks so much, bye.


19. Travelling together can sometimes be difficult. Especially if you're going somewhere like France.

In France you will only eat cheese. Which is actually not a bad thing.

20. You'll have a whole bunch of genuinely interesting conversations about vegetarianism.

*prepares to cook vegetarian chili* *spills the beans* Whoa, I suppose you could call that.. *lowers shades with a spatula*.. Kidney failure

But seriously: You'll umm and ahh about whether pet ownership is ethical forever.

21. But most of all, you'll start to really enjoy cooking together.
