i only recently became a vegetarian(july 21, 06) and still have yet to tell any of my friends and im on my way to becoming a vegan. because of that i avoid going out to restaurants with them, that in itself is so hard to do cuz im the captain of my schools wrestling team<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=""> . Also i absolutely refuse to eat hydrogenated oils, HFCS, dairy, etc... so that pretty much eliminates most restaurants. To make matters even worse my best friend is a huge meat eater/hunter. He even invited me to butcher a dear and go hunting with him but i simply said i was busy. Hes also the kind of guy that looks down on anything that isnt normal. any advice on how i should deal with this?
