Speaking of which, I haven’t always been a fan of a soy. There was definitely a time where all the news reports and soy gossip freaked me out.

When I announced my newfound vegan lifestyle to my best friend about a year ago she decided we would never dine-out together again. For some people, the words “vegetarian” or “vegan” denote healthy lifestyle and environmental awareness. For others, the words are synonymous with “pretentious, top-knot wearing, yoga loving, aggressive hippy who doesn’t eat bacon or anything else delicious in this world”.
