The Saucy Vegan dresses like this...

Ok, so people around you don't know you are vegan. But they will find out soon. Since the barbeque you are attending is about to start. And no, you will not have the meat which is up on the grill: you will have the soy burger (grilled separately), the corn on the cob, the salad without the dressing, the weeds from the grass (depending on how lucky you are...).
And people will start asking/wondering/challenging you with the usual 1000 questions, which is by all means good to answer, firmly and politely, but that may not be entertaining for you... (come on people! I think I have said to half the world population why it is bad to drink milk? Is there seriously someone who still does not know?)

So what to do in order to get a bit more fun from that BBQ get together? Well, we say, stop hiding and attack first! Wear your saucy vegan message on you!
The challenged meat eaters will anyway sort of attack you because hit in the soft spot eating their bloody ribs while you are keeping your conscience clean... so coming out right away and make a statement of your veganism could be a good way to cut conversation short and to keep the meaties away for a while!

And these cheeky vegan tees seems done right for this purpose!

From VeganPride.com (which, by the way, is a Brazilian company! If you have always though South America is not for veggies, think it over!), this great MEAT GAME OVER message surely will make lots of eyebrows raise with amusement.


For the baldest ones of you, MerchRobot.com sells this super saucy message: SAVE A PLANT, EAT A VEGAN. Careful! This is tricky and super fun! The meat eaters will think to have found an alley, but a bitter vegan surprise is waiting for them!


Feeling informative rather than mildy aggressive? With a message like CAN YOUR MEAT DO ALL OF THIS?, this soy tee from Threadless.com is for you!


(by the way, this tee is not on sale right now: you can vote for it to make sure it gets printed: no registration required)

Not feeling any of this? Surely there is the usual and always cute "I am not nugget", "kiss me I am vegan", "Pro-Life, Save Animals" tees... but this post was titled the Saucy Vegan, was it not???

For manhood-proof, cuteness infused, tofu forward, internationally understood, angrily opinionated, music interwined, retro-looking, fashion oriented, stylishly modern (and even Irish-Gaelic targeted) vegan tees, there will be other posts! We honestly found so many that we had to break apart the intended "best vegan tee-shirts" post into chapters!
Because one thing is sure: there is something to fit every vegan taste bud not only with food, but also in the world of tee shirts as well! Wear your pride!

"Heyyyy VEGAN.. This is a Vegan Restaurant.." and I was like wow.. and then I looked at my Tee.. and it was quite evident from miles that I was a vegan.. anyways eagerly looking forward to other tee posts..

I wear my "Peace, love and vegetables" T-shirt to the gym at least once a week.

Love those...

I'm actually thinking of making of little business cards to hand to people.. I've been a vegetarian my entire life and on/off vegan for years now...

It is downright irritating, the stupid questions and statements people make when they find out.

Melody, this is such a good idea! Hand out to people your belief and dietary requirements! I think it would make a GREAT idea for when you are going out to friend's place for dinner: at least it would mean you are not going to barely survive on salads!

Love the t-shirt. I prefer not to discuss my food practices over a good lunch, it seems to be a debate at that time and I have nothing to debate... my decisions are made. However, if someone is interested and would like to know more I'd love to tell them about my beliefs sometime over a Saturday late morning coffee. Sacrificing a little for the meeting, surely they wouldn't do that just to tell me their opinions.
