i began the transition to vegetarianism while dating jay. One of the things we enjoy together is going out to eat, but now he finds it difficult to go out because of my eating habits. I tell him that there are plenty of things that i can eat at restaraunts and at this point i will still eat fish occasionally. I could not believe what was happening to our relationship because of food. We had an argument about being vegetarian. I have been doing a lot of reading about nutrition for a few years now because i want to be a nutritional therapist and the more i read about vegetarian/vegan lifestyles they make sound nutritional sense to me. And frankly i feel much better when i just don't eat meat or dairy. Pretty cut and dry....not. Anyone have any advice on how to make this work. I absolutly adore this man and this one issue has come out of left field for me. i have a feeling there is history behind it - but it is such a sensitive topic to bring up, i am afraid to talk about so soon after that discussion.
