i am a flexitarian by accident. i have a couple employees who are vegetarians and there lunches looked interesting and in talking to them i tried different things and i find the meatless meals are just as interesting or satisfying and it is fun to try different things. it is also fun to trick my carnivore husband- i make a mean lasagna that he still has no idea! i dont think i could ever say i am vegetarian because of well one example, i had lunch at a catered event with one of the aforementioned girls. they must have made the mashed potatoes with chicken broth and she got real sick real quick. it seems like a pain to have to be afraid to eat anything because of that. i also am opposite of a lot of people. i will eat meat that has looked at me. i know where it came from, how it was raised, handled, "processed", and who did all of this. (the farm up the road sells organic chickens and eggs)
Marriage isn’t like a tray of hors d'oeuvres. You can’t just pick what you fancy; you’ve got to take the lot or nothing. – Cary Grant, The Grass Is Greener
“Fairy tales, are more than true. Not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be defeated.” — G.K. Chesterton
I've looked into flexitarianism before, mostly because I know I could never fully give up meat but I do enjoy vegetarian meals. I've been wanting to eat more vegetarian and use meat as a weekend/party/outing sort of occasion. Why not start here, right?
