I'm just a full on Vegetarian, since the age of 11!
Love animals and could never distance myself from the idea of eating their flesh....

I do however feel that all meat eaters should at some point part take in the killing of the animal you tend to eat, it'll show you the gravity of what your meals mean and you'll have more respect for the creature thats providing you with substance.
If you can't do it that then, you don't deserve to eat them!

Do you find that you like the white meat on turkey better than the dark meat? I was just wondering, because I have trouble eating some turkey products because they just 'taste wrong' to me. I think it might be that I have never liked dark turkey meat and maybe they use it in certain products.


Yes I always eat products made with lean turkey breast, not a big fan of the turkey legs.


I'm glad I'm not the only one, I was starting to feel weird being a person who prefers to eat the breasts only.

-_- if the reason you don't eat meat is just because you can't take that something living is now on your plate then thats nature, even something not meat gone through the same.

I currently have just been eating Ramen Noodles and incorporating rice and fish in with it.
I'm trying to lose weight and I also take a multivitamin so I don't get too sick.

the only meat we eat is orangic beef hotdogs. we also eat fish. that's it. alot of red meat is bad for you. it ages the skin. and makes you look old.

The only meat I will actively go out of my way to eat is fish and shellfish. If it walks or flies I can generally take it or leave it and not care either way.

Queen scallop, green pea and watercress risotto > steak.
Ginger tofu stir fry > chicken.
Sushi > masturbation.

Opinions may differ :P

Mother started us off as mostly vegetarians, the grandparents introduced meat 6/7 times a week. I don't eat much pork because for part of my childhood we were told to avoid it for religious reasons. Meat was mostly chicken. I've found that I'd rather avoid beef, its just too chewy and the flavour is too much. The rare times I eat pork it's as bacon//ham or cooked very spicey. It's got a strong flavour which I only find palatable prepared the ways I've mentioned. I like the taste of lamb but it's got a lot of fat so again I find that best for rare occasions. Goat is tough and takes a lot of cooking, another rare occasion meat.

I'm not a fan of tofu. I prefer my beans to look recognisable in meals.

Fresh doesn't mean much when the product is several days old. I've learned that the hard way.

Let me give you an example of how great frozen fish can be: I once went to my local fishmonger to buy some wild salmon (usually very expensive). To my surprise, I stumbled upon frozen wild king salmon fillets that retailed for $12/lbs, which was insanely cheap, especially when you compare it to fresh Atlantic (i.e. farmed) salmon which was priced at $14/lbs.

Obviously I went for the king salmon and had it thawed in the fridge overnight. When I finally got to eat the fillet, it was to die for. The fish literally melted in my mouth and the flakes couldn't be moister.

So it's just a matter of properly storing and preparing your fish.

$12/lb. insanely cheap?! Not for me!
Whether fresh or frozen, I consider seafood too expensive cos when I do buy it, it usually costs between $4-$10/lb. (I don't buy super fancy stuff)
Contrast this with chicken, which can often be had for $1-$3/lb.
Turkey hot dogs around $1.50/lb.
Asparagus $2-$4/lb.
Cabbage $0.50-$1/lb.
That seafood is a luxury remains apparent.

The closest I come to being a "semi" vegetarian is ordering a pizza that is half cheese on one side and half pepperoni

I only really eat chicken as a meat product.

Haven't touched beef in like 6 years and I very rarely eat pork.

I think we should eat more bugs, lamb or goat and they're more humane than conventional meat. Also, I read that in Venezuela, there are tribes that eat earthworms, but I think the worms should be contained in flour first to remove the soil from their bodies. I think earthworms have the same amount of vitamin B12, iron and even protein as liver.

I don't think people eating beef, pork, or chicken will ever stop, unless every single livestock animal dies instantly all at the same time.

Fish is interesting, but most of it tastes the same to me. It also makes me queasy and feel like hell for a few hours, so I don't eat it.. A multivitamin works just fine.
Lots of your points sound good on paper, though. I don't really watch what I eat anyway, so all I hear is "I limit myself to only a few avenues of cuisine". Lol
