Social Implications of Being Vegan

Last night, I was at the perch (the hangout at college) and they had just finished their pizza making night. My friend offered me a pizza and I didn’t entirely lie. I told him that I had already eaten and that was why I wasn’t jumping on the pizza like my friends. But that wasn’t the reason that I didn’t eat any pizza.

Went to cosco today for lunch after the Walk for Life and the only non-meat option that they had was a churro, which probably isn’t vegan. I made the mistake of getting one and now my stomach isn’t too happy with me. I used to be able to eat fried foods but not anymore. Now they don’t taste good and they make me feel bloated and overall unhealthy. So lesson learned: its better to eat nothing and wait until I get home than to eat a churro for lunch. But I also didn’t want to be the only person in the group not eating something, I’m not a huge fan of drawing attention to myself.

Do you sometimes lie to avoid awkward situations and the avoid explaining yourself for the millionth time?
