30 Bananas a Day!

10 minutes after watching Meet You're Meat "Can you get me a steak sub for dinner?"

So I showed my grandmother Meet You're Meat for the second time, the whole way through the was disgusted and said it was horrible, and asked why they would do that, I told her because its profitable, and because we don't give animals equal consideration of interests. At the end she said "Ok ill start trying to work on it, but still need my milk." Of course I explained to her how she doesn't need it because she isn't a calf, she then made calf noises and started laughing... And then she walked away.

By the way we have almond milk and vegan butter in the house at all times, and I fix dinner every night, and always offer to fix her food, so there are plenty of alternatives.

10 minutes later I hear her upstairs asking for a steak sub for dinner :( 

I think she's tooooooooo dang old to make decisions, and I really need my mom to just stop buying animal products. Any ideas? My mom is vegetarian, but still puts milk in her coffee and buying milk for my grandmother, and my brother is mostly vegan i think, but he still sometimes buys animal products (even meat) for my grandmother :(

Bite Size Vegan did an awesome interview with Gary Yourofsky about trying to change family members. His ultimate conclusion was that even though you want to, family members are the hardest to try and change. You can try but in the end you have to accept them and use your time more wisely looking for people who are more open to veganism. I commend your efforts though.

Even Harley's family isn't vegan. He talks about how they're clinically obese and don't listen to him too, so it's not just you hehe. Don't feel bad if everyone continues to not be vegan or fully vegan. Just keep fighting the good fight and I wish you luck.

Just keep fighting the good fight

also, don't think that you've failed if you don't get conversion - the seed has been planted and it can't be avoided.

here's an interesting article:

Now I can also start telling people much to their bemusement "aaah you're at 26...." 
And figure out my plan of attack from there.

now there's an approach indeed!
