Ha ha ha , that is funny. I get silly comments like that too. Like, Oh i used veggie oil to fry the eggplant, can you have veggie oil? I just look at them and say, you think about that a minute.
But the coolest thing is, my grandmother, who was SO concerned when I became vegan 6 years ago, said how wonderfully healthy and big my 1yo DD is... then said who knew a little vegetarian could be so healthy.
Anyway, my family doesn't dought me anymore, they actually are very interested and ask tons of questions now, like what foods help for this and that. They are also asking and coming around on the organic thing too. They used to say that the checmicals were fine or they wouldn't put them on the produce or feed them to the food animals. Now that it is coming up slowly in the media they are questioning it. I get so mad, like "what you don't beleive me until channel 7 airs a story?"
