There are vegans who preach and then there are vegans who cook. I’m not saying that preaching this message is a bad thing. Sometimes that is what a person needs to hear. But sometimes showing people how good vegan cooking can be is enough to make people start thinking about veganism. Or at least not thinking that it is boring and that they can never do it.
I’ve had a positive influence on my household through food. I’ve made things for our bake sale, that was vegan and everyone liked it. I had someone who knew I didn’t use eggs ask me what I put into my cupcakes instead of eggs.
