This is a conversation that my five year old nephew and I had a few weeks back when we were at a restaurant and I had ordered a vegetarian pizza. I love this little guy – and I’ll bet you can guess what his favourite food is!
Him: Aunty Kate – so you’re a vegetarian?
Me: Yes I am.
Him: Why are you a vegetarian?
Me: Because I’m healthier when I eat vegetarian food.
Him: Oh. You’re healthier. And is that the only reason?
Me: I also like vegetarian food.
Him: Hmmm….I find it hard to believe that you only eat vegetarian food.
Me: Well – I do.
Him: Well – lucky there’s vegetarian sausages then!
