Happy plant eating!

I plan on baking some vegan cookies and leaving them out on a table in the break area, and after they're gone telling everyone that they just ate *gasp* VEGAN cookies!
JP wrote:Sometimes when folk go vegan they dont only go vegan, but also clean up their diet to include more whole foods, less processed foods, more veg and fruit - and those are less calorie dense. So while they thought they were eating the same or even more food in terms of volume, they were actually taking in less calories.
And lack of calories = drop in strength. And thats suboptimal.

for my choice but they still feel like I'm trying to convert them and without me saying anything they'll go on about how they "need" animal products for whatever reasons.
