HI , I just found this group and I think it so me!!!

I have been what I call nearly vegetarian all of my life. I seldom eat meat, but there are rare occasions. I do use some fish and chicken as it is a very lean source of protein. I try to be vegetarian, but it is hard for me to stick with it. I do believe the world is a better place if meat eating was reduced by everyone. Of course, like many, the family is not understanding and thinks I have some sort of eating disorder.

No you're not! :-)
I think people don't understand because of the technical terms. I rarely use the word "vegetarian" when i'm not eating meat, unless i'm speaking of a "vegetarian meal or diet", nor do I use "flexitarian". I'm just eating what I'm eating when I'm eating it. Everyone's not going to understand, but hey, it's me and it's my body and I understand :-)

So glad I found this group. Sometimes my family looks at me weird when I say "Oh, I'm eating vegetarian right now." They roll their eyes cuz they know I ate ribs last week. Why is it so hard for some people to understand that you don't exactly have to be classified into a group all the time? I just go with what feels right to my body. So I guess I'm a flexitarian. I love it! Spark On.
