If there's anything a vegan hates more than a bleeding steak, it's the accusing eye rolls and barrages of questions they often face from skeptical meat eaters. Veganism, the dietary practice of eschewing animal products, including dairy, has gained traction in the United States in recent years and is often touted as a healthier and more ethical alternative to traditional red meat- and dairy-heavy diets. 

Some vegans cite animal cruelty as the reason behind their veganism. Others say it's about avoiding the harmful saturated fats and cholesterol typically found in red meat products. Whatever the reason, nearly every vegan will have to defend their meat-less ways at some point.
