reckon I could do it in the UK without issue. if I’m cooking for myself, I’ll spend weeks subconsciously not eating meat since many of the things I like to eat are vegetarian anyway (cheese, hummus monster, bread, felafel, pasta etc). Its more difficult to make these meals healthy, I find, since one of my staples when I’m being healthy is literally just piece of grilled meat with shit tonnes of veg. but i’d still manage to substitute the protein with some veggie protein if I wanted to.
genuinely think it would be impossible to be veggie where I lived Spain. My housemate tried it for a bit and became unhealthy, run down, and ended up eating stuff he thought was vegetarian but actually contained meat. you’d pretty much have to give up eating out since everything is either meat or cooked in meat. many people keep personal pigs in their back gardens for a slaughter festival every year there, just to give you a feel for how meat obsessed this place is. I didn’t know a single vegetarian the whole time I was out there, and I’m not surprised. Plenty of ex veggie Americans/British that just couldn’t make it work. Probably doable in one of the big cities, but even then, I’m told its harder than in the US or UK.
