Happy World Vegetarian Day and Vegetarian Awareness Month!

In some parts of the world being vegetarian is the norm, and vegetarian food is readily available.

Not always so in the UK.

Even though there’s about 4 million vegetarians in the UK, restaurants can fool you into thinking it’s still the 1970s.

It’s even worse if you go on holiday to Eastern Europe or South America.

And, no, we’re not worried about getting anaemic thank you very much.

Here are 15 things that only vegetarians will understand.

1. You’ll always get your food first on a flight

It might not always be edible, but it’s pretty cool to get priority service once in a while.

Unfortunately this also means you’re stuck with the dirty tray on your lap for absolutely ages until everyone else has been served and finished.

2. Posh restaurants often have the worst vegetarian food

Goats cheese tart, pasta or risotto just doesn’t cut it if you’re paying top price for it.

Many good chefs really let themselves down by not catering better for vegetarians.

Do us a favour – at least cut the prices if you’re going to be this unimaginative.
