"I'm not 100% strict with my diet if it means annoying the future in-laws"
I always think that if they are annoyed about it, it's their problem. You should always be yourself. Let other people's prejudices fly on flags, you can sail in any direction you want.
"Have you experienced people freaking out and not knowing what to cook for you?"
I never have, though partly because all my closest friends are vegetarian and vegan, it makes life really easy, we're always sharing food. In fact, I prefer to eat just with fellow veggies, it's always much more fun and relaxed.
"Other people I know can be totally full, but still feel like something is missing if meat's not on their plate, which I've always thought was strange."
I always find fake meats can be good for that kind of person. There's so much choice now compared to when I went vegan over 20 years ago! I enjoy those kinds of things myself, apart from the ones that are too realistic! I have to admit, I can't eat the fake fish things that I've started to see, my mind knows the truth but my body says "No, it is fish!" I tend to stick to veggie burgers and sausages.
Thanks for joining in!
