Kate is correct. And I say this to you as a vegetarian. There was no lack of transparency and you absolutely should not try to “get through to her” about why she, an independent adult living on her own, owes you an explanation of what she digests, ever. Scolding her for not giving you information you had absolutely no right to would absolutely count as you being difficult to talk to. Also, precious few adult children enjoy being asked questions about their dietary choices, calmly posed or not. Apologize, back off, and tell her you’re going to do better in the future.
