Vegan Ninja Society

Are you like me?

Do you like to:

1) Make really delicious vegan or vegetarian meals

2) Share them lovingly with family and friends

3) Wait till the end of the meal and then oh-so-smugly spring on everyone that the meal they so enjoyed was vegan or vegetarian?

If you answered yes to all 3 of these questions, then you may be part of the Vegan Ninja Society, a clan so secretive (and mildly irritating) that I didn't even realize I was a part of it until years after I joined.

Yes, your non-vegetarian friends and family may recoil in horror when you offer them a tempeh sandwich, but not when you suggest, "Hey, try this tasty cookie I just made. It has chocolate chips and coconut!" But such is the basis of your ninja-like skills. By the time they know that this was indeed a vegan cookie with vegan chocolate chips, it is already too late.

They have already revealed that they enjoyed it, and they can never again say that they didn't with any degree of sincerity.

So yes, while your victorious na-na-na-na-nah happy dance after you reveal the truth may begin to annoy your loved ones, this just means that you may have to resort to even stealthier ninja strategies the next time you plan a surprise attack.

You may just have to say nothing at all as your vegan penne pink vodka sauce is happily devoured before you, and then throw down a little ball of smoke and be suddenly, and mysteriously...

I admit to having been bamboozled by the Worldly Vegetarian. After I had consumed a delicious meal she had prepared, she informed me with a grin that no animals had been harmed or used in the making of its deliciousness. And I do want to emphasize its deliciousness.

I could have sworn there had been some egg or dairy in the dish, but she gleefully told me 'nay'. And, in a puff of smoke, she vanished.

Keep up the excellent work, WV!
