Vegan with a side of humor

Vegetarianism too easy for you.  Try being a Vegan.  Not that it’s difficult to follow a Vegan Diet (we actually eat very well and in most cases have a more diversified diet than non-Vegans.  No, the difficult part is answering the never ending list of questions:

1) Don’t you miss cheese/ice cream/butter, etc.?

2) If everyone went vegan, wouldn’t animals take over the world?

3) Do Plants feel pain?

4) Where do you get your protein?

5) Do you eat fish?

6) Wouldn’t cows explode if we didn’t milk them?

7) Don’t you care about people as much animals?

8) Where do you get calcium?

9) What do you eat, salads and tofu?

10) Are you Vegan all the time?

My personal favorite is #4.  I get asked at least twice a week where I get my protein.  I won’t bother answering all of these questions for you now, but perhaps in a future blog post.  In the mean time, here are some great new Vegan Tee designs available in the store.

Featured Fashion Friday — Peace in the World

This week’s featured fashion is one of our Vegan Tee’s:  “There will never be any peace in the world as long as we eat animals”.  The quote is attributed to Isaac Bashevis Singer, the late writer who was a Nobel Prize winner.  From the wiki report:

Singer was a prominent vegetarian[24] for the last 35 years of his life and often included vegetarian themes in his works. In his short story, The Slaughterer, he described the anguish of an appointed slaughterer trying to reconcile his compassion for animals with his job of killing them. He felt that the ingestion of meat was a denial of all ideals and all religions: “How can we speak of right and justice if we take an innocent creature and shed its blood?” When asked if he had become a vegetarian for health reasons, he replied: “I did it for the health of the chickens.”

Many team members of the Iamtee.com family are Vegan or Vegetarian and this is indeed a Passion for them.  What do you believe about the treatment of animals in today’s world?  We realize this is a heated topic, but change will only occur when we take the time to listen to each other.
