(Closed) Veg vs Non-Veg . . . Am I being too sensitive?

As a longtime vegetarian, I’m going to tell you what I’ve found:

if you label it “vegetarian” there are lots of set-in-their-ways people who will loathe it instantly. Call it by its actual name – mac and cheese, bruschetta, kabobs, caprese, ravioli, pizza, whatever – and they think it sounds great. I would go to any lengths possible to stop labelling things to the non-veg side, and just give the veg side a heads-up. 

Also, since you’re clearly a great hostess and thinking things through in a considerate way, I’m sure you already thought of a way to tell the full vegetarians what has chicken? I’ve had times where I accidentally ate fish because people told me the dish was vegetarian. I was really upset and it was really hard on my body since I’ve been a vegetarian for almost 10 years.

I love all vegatarian foods and I do eat meat.  I would usually go for the veggie options more than foods that contain meat.  I don’t understand why people who chose to eat meat can’t eat other foods too.  I would definately make sure there is plenty of “veggie” food.  It won’t hurt them it’s one or two days.

Oh, and I would leave the pepperoni off too and just go with cheese pizza.
