Diet options

Recently I had to go to a research meeting.

While setting it up, they emailed me the following list of diets to choose from:




I wanted to do a mix & match, just to see what they brought me.

So what DID they bring you?

Where is the choice for "eats no mayonnaise"?

Packer said...

Two all beef patties, special sauce on sesame seed bun....

Powers said...

What if I want to have nothing but chicken nuggets and fries every night of the conference?

I'm glad Ron Swanson didn't see this list. He'd have had a conniption.

Richard Smith Jr said...

Good choices. Which ones are artisanal?

Jono said...

Just coffee for me, thanks.

vegetarian, lacto-ovo, eats fish:

Technically, IIRC, that's called "pescetarian" but I knew people (who ate that way) who called it "vegequarium."

The mix & match would have starved you out. There would have been an emergency run to the local Taco Bell.

At a CME meeting in the multicultural UK, lunch is typically a buffet, with labels as to the ingredients. I cant remember the last time I saw and pork derived foods at such a lunch..

Anyone who eats off this menu will by default not survive the coming apocalypse (with or without zombies)

As usual, I'm too busy laughing stuff out my nose to make any coherent remarks--except for thanks to the good Doc and all the previous commenters for brightening an otherwise pretty dark day.

John said...

Packer, you forgot the lettuce and cheese!

Diet Coke and tomatoes

Dang, you guys get all the fancy choices! I usually have to just find the "vegetarian" option and pick out all the pieces of chicken.

Eric Atkinson said...

So, no inorganic food? How rude.

Packer said...

@ John, did not forget, didn't want the ear worm, now you gave it to me. da di da,da did da, di da on a sesame seed bun. Aw crap, now good for the rest of the day..

Join me.

The first world has so many tedious problems.

I'm so hurt - they didn't include my low carb diabetes diet. What do they have against diabetics? ;)

Jenetikitty said...

Hahaha, Bonnie. I was actually going to complain about the lack of low-carb diabetic options, too. :)

"I'm a pesca-pescatarian. I only eat fish who eat other fish."

I've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use this line from Silicon Valley, and am jealous of your chance there.

They missed one:

Starving--will eat off the floor

Snark aside, I actually appreciate seeing all the options! It's frustrating to attend a conference where the only vegetarian option is a salad of iceberg lettuce.
