Yeah, I had to go back and get sassy after I found out what you guys were talking about. I lurve some facebook sass.


omg, you guys, facebook didn't give me ANY alerts for those comments! Just saw them all for the first time. I <3 my snarky vegans.


this is a huge facebook pet peeve of mine. what wonky matrix do they use to decide what you get alerts for?
after my daughter was born and i posted a picture of her i got like only random alerts for comments people made and there was like 70 comments.

5 weeks later when her cousin was born and i got tagged in the picture they posted of her i got EVERY.DAMN.EMAIL.ALERT on the thing.

When people ask me for recipes I usually just take a photo of the cookbook page and either text, email or FB message it to them! I'd totally resent having to type it out too.

I am cranky, but I just wish hashtags (abused by many vegans, especially on instagram) would go away. Like I get it, but I also don't get it.

i dont like hash tags either because i feel like people dont use them correctly

#likewhatisthepointofstringingallthesewordstogetherwithahashtag?
#whatdoesthatdo?

i will admit to using them on occasion though like just plain ones like #vegan or something

I tag the appopriate stuff with 'vegan' and 'crueltyfree' because some people do look at those tags for a purpose, but I also follow a few people who use so many tags the text is bigger than their picture.

It's my husband's 1 year vegetarianniversary (whew!) and he's finally comfortable calling himself veg when people ask. I'm filled with glee when he tells me about all the dumdums who say stuff off the vegan bingo card to him. It's not that I like that he gets annoyed or challenged but I love how incredulous he is while recounting the stories. He's not a veteran cranky vegan yet, like me. Yesterday he got his first, "But if we didn't eat them (cows) they wouldn't exist anymore!" Hee.

That's awesome! (The 1 year and being comfortable calling himself veg, not so much getting the bingo things said to him)

I made wacky cake for my son's first birthday and everyone was asking me what it had instead of eggs! I was like...nothing! I don't know why it still works, magic? I love that cake so much though, it turns out so good and I don't even need to get the mixer out or anything.

Well, in wacky cake the leavening/air is added by an acid-base reaction (the vinegar/cocoa + baking soda) and the texture is usually crumblier than egg-based cakes, so the binding function isn't necessarily replicated, just somewhat absent. In other recipes the useful properties of egg proteins are more obvious and do need replacing or you will end up with a fundamentally different type of cake.

Obviously, it's not a texture I consider crucial to my daily existence, but I do think "how do you replace the properties that eggs add to cake" (which is what they probably mean) is a legitimate question, rather than an indication that someone is just brainwashed under the sway of Big Poultry or something.

we're going to a wedding tomorrow. we think it's buffet as the invite just said "followed by dinner and dancing" and no actually food choices.
the bride tends to eat healthy and although is not a veg she eats a lot of veg foods.

*fingers crossed*

AHAHAHAA I'm the fattest vegan I've ever met and I never drink soda. I hate carbonated beverages, so I never ever put them in my mouth. I think the last time I even tried to drink soda was like 15 years ago, which was before I went vegan, and I'm pretty sure I spit it out and cried.

I do not drink traditional soda, i stopped like 19 years ago. but the last year or so i allow my self a Zevia with dinner...Soda is the new black sheep in the food world.

A few tables down I assume this guy ordering dessert was vegan, he asked about dairy, honey and then started asking about serving sizes and the cost per serving...People can be so ridiculously cheap.
