Two hundred and thirty-six

Veganism is more widespread than you might think.  The more I talk about the topic, the more people I find out are vegan.  Not everyone preaches the lifestyle.  And most vegans, like Sheri from my interview two days ago, try their best to be vegan, although occasionally stray.  There are also quite a few vegan celebrities, although I’m sure it’s easier to be vegan when you have a personal chef!  (Just a joke – I know not everyone famous has a personal chef!)
