Vegan with a Non-Vegan Husband Dilemma?

Question:
About 4 months ago I read a book that changed my life and I decided to take the huge step to eliminating animal products from my diet. I am very proud of this decision and feel great about what I am doing. YET, I have a husband who is a meat eater like NO ONE you have ever met in your life. He is from Brazil and they eat their meat with a side of meat and maybe a glass of meat to go with it! We sat down and discussed what I wanted to do and although he is VERY supportive of my decision and helps me find new foods and restaurants and I am VERY supportive of the fact that this lifestyle is not the right one for him (please don’t bash me), I am having a HUGE problem with cooking for the both of us. He is the pickiest eater you have ever met, aside from the fact that he eats meat, he eat absolutely NO veggies except potatoes. He does love pasta….. as long as it is cheesy, meaty pasta. WILL NOT TOUCH TOFU & HATES when I bake with soy or ANYTHING not milk or eggs (and I have tried to trick him and he freaking KNOWS). I am having to cook separate meals for each of us and I keep thinking that maybe I will wear of on him and open his eyes to new things but it’s just not happening and I am getting frustrated. I just want to know if anyone else has a split house hold and how you cope…. tips and tricks!?

Hot Docs 2010 Trailers: OUR HOUSE


Dan Taylor is fresh out of prison when he meets Derek, a young Christian anarchist who runs an illegal homeless shelter out of an abandoned warehouse in Brooklyn. An alternative to the impersonal, bureaucratic shelter system, Our House provides a safe space for ex-cons, former drug addicts, and punk squatters to live a communal, spiritual, and vegan lifestyle. Something as simple as sharing a bowl of oatmeal and having a conversation brings the residents closer together. For many, this connection marks the first time theyve felt anything resembling worth. Personal and spiritual relationships thrive in the dusty sunshine of their dwelling. It isnt until the building is set for demolition to make way for luxury condos that one realizes what is truly slated for destruction. Our House is a home crafted with hearts, not hands; intangibles such as community, trust, and goodwill are built inside its walls. – Angie Driscoll
