My Favorite Question

(This one is short, but sweet) Whenever anyone finds out I am vegetarian (and honestly probably 85% vegan), the VERY FIRST question I get is: "Where do I get my protein?"  Oh, sweet Jesus, if I had a dollar for every time I was asked that question, I'd be a very rich man. The answer, without ...
