I’m wondering if any vegetarians/vegans live with family who eat meat and don’t support your diet at all. I’ve been trying to be vegetarian and slowly transition to vegan for a long time now. I always go two-five weeks without eating meat, but my family CONSTANTLY eats meat so I end up failing and have to start all over. I know that I’m healthier without meat, and that I’m healthier than the rest of my family, but they’re constantly trying to get me to eat meat when I don’t want to. I also can’t get a job to save my life, so I can’t buy my own food. I cook for my family most nights, which means preparing a vegetarian version for me and dealing with disgusting raw meat for them. But I’d rather do that than let any of my family members cook because they’ll make things that I can’t take the meat out of (ex. spaghetti with meat sauce, or vegetable soup with ground beef).
Does anyone else have to deal with family like this? If so, how?
