The other day the cashier at Chipotle commented that she liked my shirt. I was wearing my Dr. Fuhrman shirt from the Nutritarian Festival in Aspen that I was lucky enough to stumble into a few years ago. The festival, not the shirt. It says, “Kale is the New Beef.” It’s one of my many conversation starting “tools”, and shirts, along with buttons and pins can sometimes start a conversation. I’m not going to say I’ve created many vegans a la minute but I know I’ve gotten a bunch of people thinking about their food. Like hockey, (come ON NHL), I may not have scored the goal but my pass earned an assist. I always have SOMETHING on SOMEWHERE that says either, “vegan,” or “animals,” or “food.”
