Default 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).

Anyone else?

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. (only eats about 10 different things and half those are sweets!) Nice to meet a fellow veggy! It is sure interesting at our house!

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

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.
