I'm not into parody threads so much, but this is my second companion thread, and I like them.

 

I was a strict ovo-lacto vegetarian for 7 years, and went vegan for short spells throughout. Those days are gone forever. I can't really justify being a vegetarian anymore, but I still sympathize (within reason).

 

Who's with me?

I didn't last long at all. It was really just an experiment with me though. Around the time I claimed straight edge I also stopped eating meat. Not for morality or health, just trying it. I did it for 2 months and went back to eating meat. Never went back to smoking, drinking, or drugs though. I guess I'm truly addicted to chicken. ;)

I have no problem with vegetarianism at all. And i often consider becoming vegan myself.

I am into healthy eating and the majority of the meat i eat is organic.

Here are some of the reasons I still eat meat and will most likely continue to do so:

- If i were to ever become a vegan, I'd do it for health reasons, not for animal rights reasons. I don't give a {censored} about animals just like they don't give a {censored} about me.

-I never seem to be satified with fully veg meals. I always feel like somethign is missing and I just feasted on a bunch of side dishes.

-Meat taste really good and there is no vegatable or soy product that is even close to tasting as good as bacon.

-I'm italian and i think my family would disown me if I turned down a piece of sausage.

-I can't help but agree with the notion that humans were meant to be omnivores. I realize this is debatable, but my teeth are prety sharp. nuff said.

i was veggified for three years. i still rarely eat meat at home (cooking it still kinda grosses me out unless it's barbequeing), but i like to eat well prepared meat dishes at restaurants. oddly, most of my homecooked meals are faux meat items like veggie burgers.

I tell you I've gone long periods of time not eating meat....not even trying to abstain from it..just not eating it. Not really a biggie to me. Cigarrettes? No problem.

However I'm currently being treated for an ulcer/hiatal hernia/extreme lower digestive reflux (all basically treated the same way :D)

And the rules are certain foods are off. Some of those include peppers, onions, and tomatoes. No spicy stuff. Man, you wouldn't believe how much of what I eat is based off of that. I didn't until I started doing without. I've cheated a few times. If the doc said "no meat or alcohol for two months" Not a problem. But no fajitas? No red beans and rice? No marinara? Oh man...it's tough!! :(

Chicken and beef and fish is an excuse for me to cook up a bunch of peppers onions and tomatoes.

I've flirted with vegetarianism but never really committed. Meat just tastes too damn good, and I don't really have a problem with eating animals. My baby sister was a vegetarian for years but recently came back to the dark side, although she doesn't really eat red meat.

Then, apparently, you were dealing with either vege-n00bs or the same sorts of ill-informed individuals who automatically ass/u/me that vegetarianism entails the consumption of fish. :p

There is FAR more to vegetarian dining than side dishes ... [rant] but the average "steakhouse dweller" fails to realize this ... and expect the non-meat eater to subsist on @#?!ing side dishes and salads. :mad: [/rant]

Almost entirely the same situation and time frame for me. When I became a veghead, it was easy. When I was hungry, I made sure I ate until I wasn't hungry anymore. As long as what I ate wasn't meat, I was a vegetarian. No problem. Maybe the problem is that I took the same strategy going back to meat -- so now, when ever I eat, as long as it has meat, I'm still not a vegetarian. I've had a hard time finding the balance.
