I'm a vegetarian but have cheat days – people slam me for it but I don’t care, we all eat meat occasionally | The Sun

OVER the last few years, we've seen a huge spike in those adopting a vegetarian or a vegan lifestyle to tackle climate change and fight for animal rights.

But whilst many might assume eating a vegetarian diet is difficult, one self-titled ''vegetarian'' has claimed it's not all that hard – especially when you have cheat days to devour meat.

The woman, better known to her followers as @Baligrilledcheese on TikTok, tried to convince everyone that all vegetarians have a day where they enjoy their favourite non-veg meal.

Munching on a pizza, the Toronto-based blonde said that those who state otherwise are simply lying.

''I don't care what they say.

''I've been a vegetarian for seven years and this right here – this brie and prosciutto pizza from Fortinos – this is my one and only cheat.

''If you asked me and I said I'd never eat meat, never ever ever, I love the animals – I'd be lying.

''This I have about once every few months and I'm telling you every vegetarian out there has a cheat meal.

''And if they say that they don't, they're lying to you – they do.''

It's safe to say, the video very soon went viral, racking up a whopping 2.6million views and leaving people angry.

After hearing her confession, many thought the young woman could not call herself a vegetarian, with one writing: ''That’s called not being vegetarian.''

Someone else agreed, commenting: ''it’s a lifestyle not a diet for you to have cheat days.

A fellow vegetarian penned: ''been vegetarian for 11 years and genuinely do not have one. havent had a bite of meat in that time.''

A fourth was delighted the video did not go as she had planned: ''Sooooo happy the comments proved her wrong lmao.''

Speaking of vegetarians, recently one mum was fuming after her son was given meat at a birthday party.

Once she had heard about her son tucking into the meat pie, she called up the mother of the birthday book seeking answers.

That mother, 39, took to Reddit to ask if she was in the wrong for letting the boy have the meat pie.

She explained that prior to the party she asked parents if their children had any food allergies.

Only one mum got back to her, saying her son Alex was vegetarian.

So for the party, the mum provided plenty of vegetarian options for Alex to eat.

But while she was taking more food out to the table she spotted Alex tucking into the meat pie.

She explained: "I didn’t want to embarrass the boy in front of his friends by taking it off him so I just let him eat. He didn’t seem to mind or notice that it was meat.

"Anyway he must’ve told his mum what he had eaten as she called me up the following day and got angry that I served meat options at the party.

"I said my son loves pies so I wasn’t going to omit them from the menu just because her son was attending. And I presumed her son knew what he could and couldn’t eat. A few more choice words and she hung up.

"I spoke to my son about Alex’s vegetarianism to see how strict his diet is but my son didn’t even realise Alex was vegetarian so I’m wondering if Alex knows he is vegetarian?"

In the Reddit post, the anonymous mum later added in the post: "yes I announced what each food was when I put it on the table.

"And I said ‘meat pies’. I had 4 other dishes which were all vegetarian! I honestly thought this would have been sufficient.

"The boys have been on school camps and all so I assumed Alex was equipped with the necessary knowledge about his diet."

The mum said she discussed the situation with her sister who thought she was in the wrong to let Alex eat the pie.

However, plenty of people on Reddit disagreed with her sister.

One person wrote: "He's old enough to know what he wants to eat. His mother can rack off. Don't worry about it."

A second commented: "Alex isn't vegetarian, his mother is just withholding meat from him."

And a third penned: "She may want him to be a vegetarian but he may feel the opposite."
