    Oh, great! Now the Vegans we know will want us to all go to McDonald's with them. YUCK!

    Taking them to normal restaurants is always a challenge because they won't eat anything there. But what are WE supposed to eat at a friggin' unhealthy McDonald's? We ain't eating no vegan crap! And certainly no Big Macs!

    Oh well - if they can go to our restaurants, I suppose we can go to theirs. And maybe have something fish or chicken, no matter how awful it tastes or unhealthy it is. At least it won't be that often. icon_razz.gif

    Story: After my husband's heart surgery his new cardiologist told him he would be best with a vegan diet. Well, that went over like a lead balloon with a pure Italian. "I'm not gonna eat Lesbian food like tofu!" he exclaimed.

    The doctor then treated us very condescendingly (we're each always present for the other's medical appointments). "The way to know what to eat is have nothing with a face. No eyes or mouth," he lectured us, like 4-year-olds.

    I asked: "Well doctor, a fish has a face. And I thought fish could be healthy for the heart with the omega 3 it has."

    "No, " he replied. "No fish! Nothing with a face."

    "OK, " I countered, now royally pissed at being treated like little children who can't understand what vegetarian or vegan is:, "If Xxxxx can't eat anything with a face, what if I put a brown paper bag over my head?"

    His husband and the doctor sat there stunned & speechless for a moment. The silence, as they say, was deafening.

    The doctor regrouped and didn't return to the vegan topic. Afterwards my husband laughed himself silly and thanked me.

    It's now 8 years later, and he's still our cardiologist. For me, too, now. He learned that day not to mess with us or underestimate us, despite our ages. He's never done anything like that again. But he remains a highly rated doctor, and provides quality care.

    OK, I was in a fump my last post, I'm sorta landlocked here today. (But not deleting; I think it includes a funny anecdote.)

    I suppose it's good that Vegans have another food outlet for them. Assuming McDonald's can do something quality and to Vegan standards. Everyone should be accommodated where reasonable.

    But I still don't wanna go with them, where I won't have anything to eat in a crappy, gross, unhealthy McDonald's. icon_razz.gif

    It's ridiculous that it's taken them this long to come out with a vegan option. It's 2018 and still not available in the U.S.
