It struck me to today how unfair it is that vegans get labelled ‘fussy, difficult, awkward etc’ when in fact I think we are the exact opposite. Any dinner party, restaurant, pub, picnic, you name it, I am just incredibly grateful if there is something I can eat. Whatever there is I gladly hoover up. Every time I go to a restaurant I ask the waiter if there’s anything vegan friendly on the menu and whatever it might be, even if it’s the 15th nut roast of Christmas, I merrily and gratefully say ‘Splendid! I’ll have that then please thank you!’. We are in fact the most unfussy, least awkward, not difficult guests.
