Would You Like A Piece Of Tomato On Your Bread? Or A Plain Bowl Of Rice?—These Have To Be The Saddest Vegetarian Meals To Ever Happen

Depending On Where You Live, It Might Not Be So Hard Eating Vegetarian, But You’ll Still Probably Run Into Meals Like These: The Saddest Veggie Meals To Ever Happen

The biggest misconception about being a vegetarian? That all we eat is sad salads and plates filled with carrots. It’s not true. There’s LOTS of stuff we eat. Most vegetarians are always stuffing their face with varied deliciousness. Because there are SO MANY things that we can eat. Hummus, pizza, fancy pasta. All the stuff regular omnivores eat, just without the bacon on top. So can someone please explain why when we tell people we’re vegetarian, they immediately prepare us something along the lines of these 12 sad meals? Stop the madness. Stop the carb load. Check out these 12 photos to witness some of the saddest vegetarian meals to ever happen.

Airplane Carbs 

Plane meals are always a bit disappointing — even for meat eaters. On this occasion, even the flight crew felt bad for the poor man.  If this isn’t a serious carb load, then what is?  

Broccoli and fries

Many vegetarians have settled for a side order of fries as their main, but with this sad piece of broccoli to boot? Do better.

When the menu says “Toast with Mushrooms” 

You must always remember to BYOVB (bring your own vegan burger) to barbecues, otherwise you might get stuck with a piece of toast and literal mushrooms –no seasoning in sight. No thank you.

When the family forgets you’re vegetarian at Christmas dinner 

Another case of BYOVB* because there’s a near 100% chance that you’ll be stuck with 2 vegetarian sides at the family dinner.

A sad vegetarian breakfast

When your only viable option for breakfast is a hashbrown, you load up —and add lots of coffee. 

An epically sad vegetarian lunch option at school

Tbh still thinking about this meal ????????????????

Ahh, nothing like an apple, a banana and an empty hotdog bun to fuel you up after a morning of studies. NOT.

When there are no vegetarian options at the restaurant so rice is all you can have

A world without rice is no world at all

Depending on where you live, it might not be so hard eating vegetarian. But you’ll still probably run into situations where your only option is a sad plate of plain rice. Sigh.

Soggy tofu and tomato sauce as the only vegetarian option when eating out

Isn’t eating out fun? The answer is, no, not always. I don’t really know what I would do if I was handed a sliced piece of bland tofu and some tomato sauce. Like, what am I supposed to do with this? 

When the only vegetarian options at Thanksgiving dinner are green beans and potatoes

Personally, this is the most tragic one. There you are, eating your green beans while the rest of the family stuffs their face with all the options. Cries internally.

When sweet potatoes are your only safe option

Only sad vegans don't use seasoning #filetmignon

Always carry a sweet potato, you never know when it might save you from starving. 

We’ve all had to settle for a side salad but COME ON

When grandma has her birthday party and everyone brings food to the barbecue —dang, not even a pasta dish?

Is this a sandwich or a hotdog or both?

Is this a hotdog or a sandwich or both or neither

This sad excuse for a sandwich –but at least this vegetarian learned his lesson and brought his own damn veggie dog to the cookout.

A Mexican Artist Is Making Pancake Art That’s Too Beautiful To Eat

nappancakes / TikTok

Social media is where people can show off just about anything they create. This includes art in any and all media, like pancake art. Claudia, the creator behind Nappan Pancake art, is the latest artist watching their art reach the masses.

Claudia, the artist behind Nappan Pancake art, got her start because of the pandemic.

casi ✨1 año✨haciendo #pancakeart 🥞 #parati #foryou #viral #trend #glowup #art #foryoupage

♬ Inox la bggg – ᗰᗩᖇIE ᗰOI ᑎᗩᖇᑌTO

The artist first started to play around with pancake art last spring break when the pandemic forced businesses and schools to close. Claudia wanted to get more creative with her kids’ breakfasts since they were now always at home.

“I started experimenting with making Pancake art,” Claudia recalls to mitú. “At first I only used the color of the natural dough and a little cocoa. At first, I just used the ketchup dispensers and little by little I learned.”

Claudia uses her pancake art to honor some truly iconic people.

Cepillín recently died and the loss was felt throughout the community. He made our lives joyous and fun with his music, especially his birthday song. Some of the creations are done for fans who request to see their faves turned into delicious pancake art.

The artist loves creating the edible works of art.

The journey of becoming a pancake artist has been a fun adventure for Claudia and her children. The more she has practiced, the more she has been able to do.

“Sometimes I scream with excitement and I go to all the members of my house to see it,” Claudia says about her successes. “Other times it’s just a feeling like “disappointment could be better” other times it just breaks or burns and then I just cry but it usually feels very satisfying.”

You can check out all of her creations on TikTok.

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Texas’s current power crisis from a devastating storm has disrupted power generation and frozen natural gas pipelines. The is historic storm has driven electric demand higher than the state has ever seen, but it’s not just electric energy being overextended as a result. It’s physical and mental human energy as well.

Recently, an image of two exhausted Domino’s Pizza workers went viral for showing the extreme exhaustion workers are experiencing.

In a post shared to News4sanantonio.com’s Chime In page a user by the name of July DeLuna explained “This Dominos in San Antonio. Working during this crisis. They had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours. This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition. They were the only pizza place open. Every pizza place was closed but dominos stayed open to help those in need.”

Little else is known about the exhausted workers in the viral image but it did rack up over 8K comments within hours of being posted.

“Dominoes better pay them for the shifts they’ll miss while they don’t have any ingredients. With this practical free advertising it’s the least they could do. Otherwise these kind people worked themselves out of already bad hourly pay,” one user commented.

“,As someone who works in the food service industry, the thought of selling out of all product in only four hours and how much work goes in to preparing that much food is unfathomable levels of nightmare fuel,” another noted.

In another response to the image, a Reddit user wrote “I cannot express to you how upsetting it is to be the only food source open during hard times, to still be open and show up to do your job with higher than normal levels of orders, and still get yelled at by management for not having orders out within a window of time.”

Images of overworked and stressed is nothing new of course.

Fast-food workers are often burdened by their field’s daily challenges. In 2020, food industry workers are being forced to endure customer abuse at even higher rates. Last year a TikTok video of a Subway restaurant falling asleep while in the middle of making a sandwich went viral.

“This is actually really sad. I can’t imagine how underslept she is. Not to mention the wage people get paid at Subway… She deserves better,” one TikTok user by the name of Monique Emilia commented at the time. The skincare influencer Hyram also commented writing “Poor thing… Can’t imagine how underslept she is, we’re too hard on service workers.”
