I'm new to SP and very excited about being part of this community. The first time I heard the term flexitarian was in a graduate school course about food and public health. It really made sense to me since humans are omnivores but we also have a conscience and therefore have a responsibility towards other creatures and our environment. The only difficult part of being a flexitarian, I find, is the huge amount of effort that has to go into researching where your meat is coming from.

What is it that should trace the insuperable line?… The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer? —Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832) A dead cow or sheep lying in the pasture is recognized as carrion. The same sort of carcass dressed and hung up in a butcher’s stall passes as food. —J. H. www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUMUvYLC5iM White Phoenix

My name is Shana and I didn't know there was such a thing as a flexitarian. I didn't choose to be one, it has just kind of happened which I am pretty happy about at the same time. I have been eating alot more vegetables, cooking them in different ways and just not adding meat. It has also been cheaper and nice to not have to thaw a bunch of chicken or beef before I can start cooking. Anyway, I am new to this, I have been on spark people for a few days now and I really like it. I love all the recipes I have gotten. I am trying to lose weight for health reasons, to teach my son young about healthy eating as well as I am engaged now and would love to fit into my dream wedding dress.
