So it’s outreach week, and like I said yesterday, just being vegan around other people can be a form of outreach.

What about you? How did you handle someone telling you you’re sick because you’re vegan, even though they apparently can get sick whenever they want and that’s somehow OK? Share your stories (or your frustrations!) in the comments!
