#38, though that is often true when it comes to veganism I can assure you vegetarianism can be one of the most healthy diets possible for most people. Iron doesn't just come from meat, it can also be found in green vegetables, certain fortified cereals and other non-meat products. And #44, if you are purely carnivorous I expect you are incredibly ill right now. Not trying to give you both a home ec lesson, just educating. *waits for abuse* Anyways, OP, sure it sucks accidentally eating meat if you're a vegetarian but it's hardly that big a deal, it can happen to a lot of us, especially when being served meals by those uneducated about what vegetarianism actually is.
So you've splurged once or twice eating meat. just think of how many animals dies so that you could enjoy that sauce. if a little escapes from your lips and trickles down your chin, just imagine it's their warm, salty blood... I hope this helps, OP.
If you can't spell 'tomato', your opinion is invalid. OP if you're over the age of 12, what you eat is your own decision. Try and keep up your spinach and bean intakes, and tell your mum she needs to respect your decisions. Sit down with her and work out your diet together so she can see you're not about to die, and try not to let these people turn you into a defensive, whiney stereotype.
