I think dadpads right on with this one.
Of course, the person in my life who is a vegan is doing that because she is anorexic and sees extreme diets as socially acceptable ways of NOT eating.
She is 5 11 and maybe 125lbs. I kid you not
It IS something that will build up in a relationship so nip it in the bud as best you can. Find out why she chose that route. It could be just as simple as she doesnt like the taste.
If it is because of animal cruelty that she chooses to not eat meat... Im sorry but that will be an issue. Any time she sees you eat meat she will associate your behavior with continuing the act she cant handle. Be prepared for that. I have known WAY too many vegans, and now choose to stay AWAY from them because of it
Though there are ways around that issue. Talking will help.
Recipes for her?
Oh thats simple.
Take a yellow and green squash, slice them like chips. Put them in a medium heat sauce pan with about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Just enough so they dont stick essentially. Sprinkle just a little bit of seasoned salt over them and slow cook them until they are mushy. The yellow squash gets sweet while the green stays sort of.. veggie tasting. The combination is wonderful.
Steam a head of fresh broccoli. Use a good vegan dressing for dipping.
Find a rice pudding recipe online. Make with raisins, cinnamon and sugar. Dessert.
Have an easy to make mushroom soup and find a place that makes fried tofu or, find a really GOOD bean soup.
Find a good phycially heavy bread to eat with it. It will be filled with raisins and nuts.
If she is a die hard vegan, make sure the ingredients on that bread do NOT say natural flavors.
You can have that lunch or dinner made in under 2 hours.
And if you are good in the kitchen, you can have it all done as she walks in and serve her the soup + toast as you put the veggies on a plate.
Red wine is vegan.
White is not.
