1. You fix your tablas every time you play lotería.

Much, much better.

People for the Ethical Treatment of … piñatas?

3. Vegan mayo is great, but it has nothing on your family’s guacamole recipe.

Oh, and don’t even bring up store-bought guacamole. Just walk away.

4. You’ve never had a problem getting your daily serving of fruits and vegetables, thanks to TAJÍN.

Shout out to another Latino vegan—Mexican TV star Marco Regil—who narrated the Spanish version of “Glass Walls.”

15. You know that this is totally true:

16. You’re absolutely fearless, and nothing will stop you from speaking up for animals!
