Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
I personally don't think one can be semi-vegetarian, you are either all in or not!
Thus the term flexitarian. I think any attempt to lessen the horrific impact on the animal world is a good thing. I am a vegetarian myself, having come to this late in life. I would like to strive to become vegan, but have far to go.
I agree, either you eat meat or you don't. I am a vegetarian and won't touch meat or broth or anything YUCK
I totally agree with your post. I haven't eaten meat or poultry for 25 years, but only recently gave up fish. Next move will be milk. I live in Turkey and just come and have a look at the restaurant menus. I usually have a choice of about 3 things, but pages of stuff for those who consume animals.
Yes.I had an issue switching direct and had some health issues. i had health issues as getting substitutes wasn't easy. its not easy to switch to be a vegetarian in some countries as most foods are not readily available. l however stood firm even aside the criticm from friends and family members.
I tend to not really care about the label. If someone calls themselves a semi-veg, it doesn't have an affect on me. I'm with Mierketje - every step counts. People who call themselves semi-veg are taking steps in the right direction, and that's nothing to scoff at or put down.
My suggestion to you and everyone else is to stop getting hung up on the label. Labels are just tools we use to understand and categorize the world. They don't even really accurate describe our experiences, and they certainly aren't the world themselves. Plus what's with all this black or white stuff? Since when is the world so rigidly dichotomous?
