“She Could Eat Every Single Thing Served”: Brother Angry At Family Member After His Vegan Fiancée Goes Hungry At Dinner Despite The Food Being Vegan

“So I did my best,” wrote the Redditor u/itriedokay123 on the incident that happened after he volunteered to cook for a small family gathering. It turns out, his brother’s fiancée was vegan, so he made sure to adapt the menu. “I put together a dijon vinaigrette salad, pasta tossed with roasted asparagus and cherry tomatoes,” and made sure the bread didn’t have milk or eggs in it.

However, the dinner didn’t go as planned. “Reassurances are made, I did my homework but… she has other complaints,” he recounted in the post on r/AITA. After everyone had left, the author’s brother texted a message blaming him for leaving his woman hungry.

This didn’t sit well, and here you have it, a full-blown family drama and somewhat of a classic example of when everyone seems to try their hardest but it turns out average at best.

However, she wouldn’t eat, and the family drama escalated up to the point that the author of this post called her out for having an eating disorder

And this is what people commented about the incident

She sat and tore up the bread rolls. That's a distraction technique. It's playing with food she desperately wants to be able to want to eat. I'd put money on the fact that calling out her ED was more accurate than they want to admit.

Yes, classic tactics for eating disorder. I know picky people and vegans, but this is screaming ed at me. And the brother probably knows. Stand back and take a deep breath, there is nothing further you can do for either of them.

I see this so many times and It angers me so much: honey has nothing to do with being a vegan! Bees are on the verge of going extinct and if we want to stop that, we need to eat honey so that the bee keepers can keep taking care of the bees. It is NOT animal cruelty to take honey from the bees. They always have a reserve and in most cases dont even get agitated when a bee keeper takes what they need. So for the love of good, STOP telling people eating honey is against veganism. It's bullshit and harms the bees in the long run.

Thanks for pointing that out. If one can buy local honey from small beekeepers, that's probably even better.

She could have eaten small portions, or just had salad, if she was that worried about calories. Refusing everything after the host has made a special effort to accommodate is rude, if it's done unnecessarily.

@Rob Woodman. Just no. My bees are not exploited and,as I said above, any responsible beekeeper will remove EXCESS honey to prevent swarming.
