Urg Co-workers are a pain....

Thursday, February 18, 2010

Why are some of the people I work with so freaked out by my food choices. Today my lunch smells wonderful, so they asked what I had. Edamame, Vegetarian French onion soup and bok choy, tofu and mushrooms in a garlic ginger sauce. The last 2 are home made. So I tell them and they just plain old freak out, how can you eat that that’s sounds horrible, then the questions start about why I eat this way.

God sometimes I hate people and want to tell them some of the horrible truths but I don't because that’s wrong and those are my beliefs .

Oh well I tried to enlighten them and some had some real questions. I even told one who is doing P90X that the owner of the company is a vegan and clearly looks healthy and well.

    I'm not even sure what there is to make fun of with that meal. It sounds delicious to me! Hang in there.

    I think it’s a universal reaction because I get the same thing from people. I usually tell people as little as possible unless they show a genuine interest. Then I tend to be more open and forthcoming. I’ll tell you, it sure has helped me to develop more patience and tolerance of people though. When you’re a vegan or vegetarian, the meat eaters sometimes treat you with a lot of bias and discrimination just like you get with gender or race or religion, etc.

    Hmmm gotta love it....mine usually laugh at my food choices. They are never negative about it. Wouldn't it be fun to remind them of all the processed crap they are eating????
