Hii essie, I'm sitting at the airport right now waiting for my plane to greece, i just wanted to ask if you find it hard to eat vegan over there ? Our hotel will always serve buffets, so i hope there'll be vegan options.

Greece was one of the places I’ve found it easiest to be vegan! They’re very vegetarian/vegan friendly. They also generally speak quite good English so communication re dietary requirements is quite easy. Definitely look for these things on menus:

• fried zucchini/eggplant
• tomato balls (check not made w cheese)
• Greek salad (ask for without feta - you will get a few strange looks, but whatevs)
• dolmades (stuffed grape leaves - sometimes served with tzatziki!)
• lots of Italian food too! Pizza, pasta etc
• bread w olive oil and balsamic
• stuffed tomatoes and peppers

Also make sure you try some fresh figs! They’re amaaazing. Have a fab time!

Tzatziki is made with dairy though. .

.. yes I know! I added that because I got caught out once or twice when I ordered food and it came with tzatziki on top, so anon knows what to check for! I am well aware it’s made with dairy :)

heyaa just wanted to say dolmades and tzatziki (and also baklava and 'uzo') are 100% turkish foods. the first two originated in western turkey so its easy to say theyre greek but yeah thank you for your attention have a gr8 day

Oh wow, I didn’t know that! I always thought they were Greek, oops. You learn something new every day hey!

Greek food seems to be a pretty mixed bag - obviously their own traditional dishes (lots of seafood etc), lots of Italian, Turkish (apparently!), and some westernized versions of each too.

Something for everyone! Thanks for sharing :)

do you ever feel uncomfortable when you're with your boyfriend? cause i am recovering from an ed, and some of the nights i feel so disgusting and fat that i dont want him to touch me abd least of all i would want to see me naked :/ so do you maybe have some suggestions?

I do, quite a lot actually. Sometimes it’s worse than others, but I often do feel very self conscious around him. It’s something I’m working on! If I’m having bad body image it’s certainly not easy though, and I think my boyfriend can tell when I’m feeling that way!

I think it’s just really important to remember that your boyfriend loves you exactly the way you are! I know that my boyfriend loves every inch of me and thinks I’m beautiful even when I don’t think I am.

If it makes you feel more comfortable you can always leave the lights off/not get naked during the daylight if that makes you feel better! Or, leave some of your clothes on! There’s nothing wrong with that. Just explain to your boyfriend how you’re feeling, and he’ll probably 1) tell you you’re being silly and that your body is beautiful and 2) be totally okay with you doing whatever you need to do to be comfortable!

Open communication is important, let your boyfriend in and tell him what you’re worried about! Good luck!
