any vegetarians here?
 
Noticed in Mono's thread about missing normal that he mentioned poly vegetarians. Since I personally had not met any poly vegetarians aside from ourselves, I began to wonder how many there are around here!

The wife & kids are ovo-lacto vegetarians (they eat eggs & dairy products), while I am more of a vegan (although I admit to the occasional fling with cheese). :eek:

Anyone else?

yep! :)
 
I am a vegitarian and have been sing 2003 (wow 6yrs!!!) my Girlfriend eats a little meat but only when we go out and usualy just easts what ever I cook at home. My husband eats meat all the time and is actually the most picky of eaters between the three of us. :D (only eats about 10 different things and half those are sweets!) Nice to meet a fellow veggy! It is sure interesting at our house!

I have been vegetarian since 1994.

My partner who is poly, is vegan.

I dont eat meat, except for fish, which makes me a veggie kind of....but I dont think it really counts.

You are a "pescatarian". I used to follow the energy level eating practice - eating things lower on the energy scale http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecological_pyramid (which is dependent on how much natural or fossil fuel energy is requried for them to be farmed, harvested, whatever). Being a pescatarian is pretty good as far as that goes. BUT - check this out!!!

http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/c...endations.aspx

That webpage gives recommendations on which fish are best to eat, and which destroy our oceans.

I now eat meat regularly, but follow a strict diet that focuses on local farming, organic farming methods, and sustainability. So I still focus on the energy pyramid thing.

AND... this is totally legit. I am getting my PhD in ecology... I vouch for these concepts.

I'm not veggie now, but I was for several years in college, and I currently aim for 2-3 meat free days per week - both for health reasons and to be a little more environmentally responsible. Like redsirenn, I try to "focus on local farming, organic farming methods, and sustainability."

I tried being vegan for about 24 hours and rapidly discovered that I would starve to death without meat. LOL

Vegetarian since I saw a PETA mag in 1985... that makes it 25 years this winter!

Congrats, Redpepper! I have been veggie since 1984, so we've both been on that path for a long time.

I was pescatarian for a year (no dairy or eggs, but did do seafood).
But finances have been tight the last two months-so i've eaten what was available. Unfortunately it's a WHOLE lot cheaper here to eat meat and what I call "garbage" food then to eat a healthy vegan diet.

:(
It really bothers me. Maca noticed it was bugging me and commented the other day-he also noticed that it impacts my health dramatically. He never really believed me (he's a BIG meat eater) about the health issues-until he saw what started going downhill after I started eating dairy/meat again after a year of being REALLY careful AND very healthy).

I just hate living where I can't get healthy food for any sort of reasonable price-even for myself-much less the whole family.
