VL: Hi, Parker, how old are you?
VL: How long have you been vegan?
P: Forever, as long as I've lived.
VL: Why are you vegan?
P: It is good for the environment. Eating meat hurts animals. It's healthy.
P: I like all vegetables.
VL: Even beets?
P: No, not always.
P: I like all fruits, except for non-pureed tomatoes.
VL: Have you ever wanted to try meat?
VL: Do friends ever ask about why you are vegan?
P: Lots of times. At school people will ask what is in my sandwich or what I'm eating.
VL: Do they understand or not?
P: A little of both. More understanding.
VL: Do they ever eat some of your food?
P: Sometimes, but not often at school.
VL: Do you think you'll be vegan after you grow up?
VL: What is your favorite breakfast?
P: I like most things we have for breakfast, but not the same thing every day.
P: A wrap with pickles, Vegenaise, lettuce, avocado, hot sauce, za'atar, seitan or baked tofu, and sometimes vegan cheese.
P: Any fruit or berry.
P: There are so many good vegan foods.
P: There isn't always vegan food available at parties.
VL: What would you tell someone who wants to switch to a vegan diet?
P: I would suggest some vegan foods they might like.
VL: Do you have a favorite non-human animal?
Thanks, Parker, we'll hear from you later in this year's Vegan Month of Food.
Parker is happy to take questions from the readers, so post a comment and he'll answer.
