The Practical Vegetarian

A confession of the practical vegetarian: Eating with carnivores having their New York Pastrami sandwiches!

The Practical Vegetarian meal - veggie burger eaten in Times Square New York is yummy enough to continue sight seeing in Manhattan.

I'd like to consider myself as the practical vegetarian, married 32 plus years to an Italian meat eater. I'm that someone who's not overly sensitive about other people's eating lifestyle. I guess you can say I'm a casual vegetarian or maybe a bit even more like a social vegetarian in a vegetarian nation. 

Reading some forums it's hurtful to find a topic saying that vegans are mean and vegetarians are friendlier. Oh my! Can we just get along? I'm going to my corner now and just eat my favorite veggie burger.

I love my vegetarian food. They absolutely taste cleaner than the meat based food that I used to eat back in the days when I used to suffer from unbearable pain of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

So yeah, I've become the practical vegetarian for health reasons.

IBS usually happens to me after eating a slab of medium rare beef and a side dish of macaroni and cheese with a few dead string beans from a can. 

But... not anymore. I love my yummy vegetarian food. No more flesh on my plate. Those days are over. Although when I go out with my family, I know that I have choices no matter where I go. There's always a vegetarian yum on the the menu.

Here's the 'Out To Lunch' video in Times Square, Manhattan New York.

Yes! I enjoyed a delicious veggie burger in Times Square and still being practical about my family eating seafood and New York pastrami & roast beef sandwiches.

This video shows you that no matter what restaurant you go to, there's always something for you. It's a free country with really vegetarian yummies.

The photo above is the vegetarian burger I ate when we were in Manhattan, Times Square New York while my family had New York Pastrami, Roast Beef Sandwich and Salume sandwiches. I had my best veggie burger in Times Square!

So there's no need to really beat yourself up about going out to eat worrying what you are going to eat. I used to, but not anymore. Come to think of it, if you are stranded on an island and you have nothing but fish to eat, you will eat it just to survive. 

Coming from a 3rd world country, I appreciate all the abundance of food we have including the fresh clean water that we don't have to pump out of the ground.

So yeah. I'm a practical casual vegetarian. I'm a pescetarian eating fish if there's nothing else on the menu. Just no obvious cloned unorganic animal flesh for my plate please.
