Whoever I am talking to, saying that I am vegan always creates a situation of discomfort. Apparently non-vegan people (even vegetarian) find it troublesome to meet someone who does not eat any dairy or animal products. The funniest part is that people tend to picture vegans either as arrogant people or diet extremists.

Among the kind of reaction that I get mostly, there is the judgmental "oh...really?" that makes me wonder if I offended someone by choosing to eat the diet that I want. There is also the "it's amazing, I could never do that", as if saying I'm vegan implies you have to eat the same way. For those who wonder, it's just something I care about and want to share. It's exactly the same as if you were talking about favourite brands of clothing.

Here are ten questions that vegan always get from friends or acquaintances that makes us laugh (or cry) all the time:

 1. What? You only eat fruits?

Of course not, I also eat TONS of carbs like bread, oatmeal and rice.

2. Isn't it expensive to eat vegan?

That's why we only eat fruits.

3. How do you get all your proteins?

Per 100g, you get twice more protein in eating nuts and seeds like (peanuts ❤ ) than chicken breast.

Of course, cooked food is overrated.
