A Woman Ordered A Vegan Meal In Spain, Immediately Regretted It

Ordering a vegan meal in restaurants can be tricky enough, but traveling abroad? Who even knows how the words “vegan meal” will translate?

Fashion blogger Gabbie Jarvis discovered that sometimes when you say “vegan,” people will automatically hear the words “vegetables only.” And while vegan is the absence of any animal products (meat, cheese, dairy, eggs, fish) there are a a lot of options other than what her poor sister was served at a restaurant in Spain: tomatoes and raw onions. This is so not okay.

(UPDATE: it appears Gabbie has since deleted her Twitter account).

Vegans aren’t on a perpetual diet —  they want to feel satiated after a meal just like anyone else, without the use of animal products.

Several commenters didn’t understand the issue, since, you know, she ordered a vegan meal. What did she expect? For those who don’t understand what vegans eat, here are several examples (out of literally hundreds) of filling foods that trump raw vegetables any day.

Potatoes

One-pot Sweet potato chickpea soup🍲Nutritious, delicious and full of flavors✌️ ————————————————— Soup is one of my new favorites! Growing up I used to hate soup and refuse to eat it even if I was very sick(sorry mom😄) But now that I have figured out how to make different types of soups with the ingredients I love and without following a strict recipe, I'm all about it😍 Here is how you can do it👇 ————————————————— 1. Sauté onions/garlic/shallots in a pot (just go with what you have on hand) 2. Add a source of protein (I added chickpeas and sweet peas) 3. Add a source of carbs (I added sweet potatoes, but you can also add noodles, rice or even quinoa) 4. Add some spices (I added curry powder and ginger) 5. Add dark leafy greens (like kale) and some other greens for garnish (like cilantro) 6. Now add your broth (I added veggie broth), water and let it cook until it's done 7. Want to add some healthy fats? Try adding coconut cream towards the end!) 8. Enjoy! You just fell in love with soups (You are very welcome😜) #theyummyplant

Healthy Pesto & Garlic Mushroom Pasta🍃 such a comforting, easy, plant-based meal! I used @sanremopasta Pulse Pasta – made from Peas, Lentils, Chickpeas & Borlotti Beans! Packs in extra nutrients having such a variety of pulses in your pasta! It has 65% more protein than regular pasta and is gluten-free. Amazing stuff🙌🏼 I sautéed the mushrooms in minced garlic and dairy free butter while the pasta was cooking, then stirred through some pre-made pesto. Literally took me 15 minutes total! I hope you've all had a beautiful day❤️ . . . #pastathatlovesyouback #sanremopasta #pulsepasta #wearefamily #pasta #ad #healthy #plantbased #vegan #veganpasta #dairyfree #pesto #healthymeal #food #whatveganseat #basil #mushroom #pesto #realfood #dinner #health #protein #glutenfree #healthypasta #feedfeed #beautifulcusines #vegansofig #nutrition

To be honest, I like the rude weather. The sharp wind clears my mind and the rain refreshes my body. It feels prickly and so alive. I love to feel rough edges, in most issues. 😜 Coming home after a walk in the extremes, feels utterly satisfying, especially when this pan of #blacklentil #ragout is waiting for you. Never call it #bolognese , it's a capital sin for Italians. ⚔️ Cooked with celery, red pepper, onions, garlic, some dried mixed mushrooms, red wine, tomato paste, salt n peppah, celeriac salt, pinch of brown sugar, crushed tomatoes, dried oregano, fresh rosemary, pinch of cinnamon… serve with #spaghettini… and #walnutparmesan… Happy #midweek !! ❤️ __________________________________________ #pastalover #vegancooking #veganfoodlover #pastaporn #pastaaddict #quickandeasy #plantbasedfood #nourishingfood #easycooking #keepitsimple #happyandblessed #lightmeal #glowlean #veganfoodinspiration #plantbasedliving #healthyfoodporn #cookingforfamily #easyfood #foodstylist #foodphotography #foodstyle #dairyfreelife #vegancheese #veganparmesan
