I tend to eat meat with every meal except Pasta or noodles, or things that you wouldn't necessarily have meat with. If I ask my mum what's for tea and she just tells me like a salad, I'd be like ' What's the meat? '

Sometimes the veggie meals just taste better Dno

It does get annoying when I buy one and everyone is immediately like; "omg are you vegetarian?!" Like non-vegetarians have to eat meat with every single meal.


I'm totally with this. I tend to go for the veggie option most of the time anyway, without anything to do with vegetarianism. I just like my vegetables!

I got a veggie paella the other day and my Mum's boyfriend's sister was really rude - "You're not one of those vegetarians, are you?"

I had salmon last night with a quinoa salad and a yoqurt and dill sauce and a cucumber salad type thing. It was good.

I couldn't be a vegetarian or vegan, I mean I love animals, but I love food more :3
And I love dairy products.
But I have seen videos on how these animals are killed and the pure conditions some live in, and I don't mind them at all. Either I'm really cold hearted (I am, pretty much Neutral ) Or more likely I couldn't care less.


Says someone with little, innocent foxes as their avatar.... Confused


Also, the only reason I had a fox as my avatar is because I still love kiddie movies.. Rolling Eyes

What does that have to do with vegetarianism?

It didn't have any meat, but there was fish.

^ Vegetarians don't eat fish either, it's still flesh from an animal.

If you don't eat meat, but you eat fish then you're technically a pescetarian.

I don't understand this "vegetarian except for fish" business. Why would fish be excluded? I'm not a vegetarian, but it seems to me that you would not want to eat anything THAT WAS ONCE ALIVE? Kind of contradictory to say "oh but fish are OK"

If you still eat fish then you are a fake vegetarian Pescetarian.
But I haven't heard of a vegetable called 'fish', have you?? Wink.

vegetarians eat stuff that used to be alive all the time. plants are still living organisms, there's just no ethical issue over harvesting and then eating them. it's a misconception that vegetarians don't eat anything that has ever been alive. unless people don't believe plants were ever alive. which seems strange to me. then again, personal opinion - i believe plants are living organisms.

i think the only people who really fit that bill are strict fruitarians (who only eat that which can be harvested without killing the plant it came from - so fallen fruits, nuts and seeds). but then again, i still think of it as living.

this isn't me having a go at everyone who eats vegetables, btw. obviously i think vegetables are great and there's no issue in eating them. i just think they were/are alive because they are/were living organisms and so saying 'vegetarians never eat anything that's been alive' is not strictly accurate.

Getting back to being serious. (Sorry Sherlock tehe)

This is actually a really interesting point that I hadn't considered before.

Biologically that's 100% true, I do consider plants as living, I guess I just didn't think of that in the same context.

I'll rephrase as living to... thinking? I mean I know fish don't think all that much but they have a brain xD

I've actually never heard of a "fruitarian" before, I hadn't considered that either.

Is it weird that I don't think about being a vegetarian now, it's strange, I just think it's the norm, I just assume most people know this. I went out for a Chinese (worst meal ever, no veggie options), and a few of my friends didn't even realise that I didn't eat meat.
My Mum also doesn't cook for me like fullstop any more, I normally did it myself anyway but she said that I'm so picky that she 'can't be fucked' any more. She still cooks for my 21 year old Brother though Grr

This sounds more or less ignorant but I don't understand the thinking behind "If I eat this, I'll be harming animals". You didn't harm the animal; you didn't kill it and no one can hold you responsible for the death of it, you know?
