Whether it’s while on the bus or at your job, eventually you are going to run into someone who has just learned of your newfound veganism and wants to give you, well, some sh*t. Odds are they haven’t fully learned about the wonders of a vegan lifestyle or the cruelty that they support with their current habits, and as much as we would all love to explain every aspect to each person who throws us a snarky comment, it’s also good to be prepared with a quick quip!

“What exactly do you eat?”

“Where do you get your protein?”

“Is that really healthy?”

“Why don’t you think of all those poor plants?!”

“Hey, I’m a member of PETA, too! People Eating Tasty Animals!”

“Really? You don’t eat meat ever? Not even chicken?”

Remember: Laughter is the best medicine—and meat-eaters tend to need a lot of medicine! 🙂 So use these liberally, and feel free to come up with some creative replies of your own!
