Hello.

What is the food like, generally? Is there a Vegetarian option?

Regards.

There is no options except maybe on a Sunday morning when you might get the choise of 'pain au chocolate or pain raisin". But for the rest, you eat it or leave it. In instruction, you will probably eat it even if you hate what is being served as was my case with tripe and white pudding sausages. However don't feel bad about not eating it, someone will.

Good to know, cheers.

Ah, a comedian with a dysfunctional knee.

Man when I read your question I thought you were joking. :) How do you think to go vegan in legion? Especially during the period when rations deliberately reduced and physical activity increased.

No special regimes of diet. No practise of silly religious customs. No individuality, and I like it that way :)

NO ! If you go to the Legion, you must be conscious that you join the military. And that means that you will have all the advantages of this stable and disciplined life, but also that you have to accept all the constraints imposed by your chiefs, usually for your own good. That means clothing, lodgings and uniform.

Saying from a fellow wannabe that he is "a comedian with a dysfunctional knee" is a very serious lack of respect for your future mate. You do not deserve to pass selection !

Maybe I was joking. Maybe I said Vegetarian instead of Vegan, oui?

There is no much difference in this case (Vegetarian or Vegan). I respect someone's choice to eat what he wants, but IMHO army is not place for that.

There is a huge difference between vegans and vegetarians from a moral/ethical or philosophical standpoint and in what they eat, but that's not the point of this thread or this board.
You can avoid deficiencies by eating a very balanced diet AND supplementing with a multivitamin and taking B12(everyone is susceptible to a b12 deficiency but Vegans moreso).

But the main point here is that the only dietary restrictions France will recognize are for Kosher or Halal, and even then you might sometimes be out of luck with limited options. So the best course is to be flexible and realize that you must eat what you are given, trade with comrades or just go hungry (hard if you are very physically active). In regiment you have more options to cook in your rooms and you can stock up on some stuff like energy bars or something to take with you in the field, if allowed.

Joking is fine but best not to joke about someone unless you are already friends. Things are easily misunderstood on an international forum when using only text and where English is not everyone's first language.

Yes. Exactly what Nick said. I am a vegan, and I'd imagine there ain't much vegan options in selection or training haha. I believe you'll just have to be flexible, and acclimate yourself before hand so your stomach can digest meat depending on how long you have gone without.

In regiment I'm sure you can maintain a vegan/vegetarian diet wouldn't be bad. Anyways, good luck.
