Being vegan or vegetarian in a Latino household is a struggle unlike any other. Mostly because you have to deal with this…
Abuelita acting like it’s the end of the world.
We get it. It’s hard to understand why we wouldn’t want to feast on these tacos de asada…
Or a tri-colored chicken burrito.
The hardest struggle? Dessert ?
Once you’ve come clean, the news spreads like wildfire.
Really? There’s gotta be something more interesting to talk about.
Followed by endless, annoying questions…
Eventually, you’re axed from all family parties.
And when you DO get an invite… they coincidentally always run out of food for you.
Still, that’s not the worst part.

Home cooked-meals cause gag reflexes.
Ever since I've stopped eating meat I've come even more sensitive to the smell and not in a good way at all #vegetarianprobs
