Fun/Interesting questions I have been asked thus far:
1) Can you still drink Starbucks?
Yes! I would never change my lifestyle if it meant I could no longer drink Starbucks! They are one of the few coffee shops in my area that offer to make their lattes with soy milk.
2) Do you have to eat beans every day?
Nope, thank God! I also get protein from the soy milk in my coffee (see a theme?), tofu, tempeh, and various vegetables.
3) Where do you get your iron if you don't eat red meat?
Spinach mostly. I love spinach and add it to a lot of my meals and smoothies. There is also a lot of iron in many beans and broccoli.
4) How in the world do you eat like that?!
I open my mouth, chew the food, and swallow..Sorry, couldn't resist. But really, it's not as hard as it sounds. And because I cook with so many different vegetables there are a lot of flavors in every meal. I look forward to dinner now more than I ever have.
5) Has it been hard? (usually the follow-up question to #4)
Yes and no. Since I was a vegetarian before, most of my usual meals were easily converted into vegan ones. The challenge is when I'm out with friends and get hungry. It's hard to grab a quick bite to eat. I'm starting to get into the habit of carrying nuts or fruit with me.
I had more that made me chuckle inside but I cannot remember them at the moment. Feel free to leave any others!
