but in all seriousness. My uncle is a Vegetarian but he will eat fish?? Whats the difference?
my previous post a few pages back explained why i eat fish. i don't know if that is your uncle's reasoning as well.

that is another thing that can be frustrating. vegetarians are as diverse as meat-eaters. we all have our own reasoning behind it. there is no one way to be a vegetarian.

I read today that a vegetarian diet uses more than half the water than a meat diet uses for the same amount of requirements.

I am certainly not a vegetarian. Meat tastes too good I'm afraid.

ANYTHING with lentils for sure! i also like the idea of ditching the silverware and eating by using the yummy bread as a scoop.
Sounds awesome... I love lentils, and even though I have no idea what this 'yummy bread' tastes like, I bet it's awesome. Thanks for the hint... I was going to go for Greek next time I'm out but maybe I'll look for Ethiopian instead!

are you talking about the product? because that certainly isn't true. it takes 5000 gallons of water to produce one pound of meat whereas it takes 25 gallons of water to produce one pound of wheat. even the united nations released a report in 2006 talking about how the meat industry is destroying the environment. check it out

i think the yummy bread is called inerja or something. it has a very interesting texture. all ethiopian food i've had is served with it and the bread isn't meant to be eaten alone.

when you do try ethiopian cuisine, do share your experience, and other dishes you may have tried!

I can't imagine not eating meat. I respect people who don't, but I think it would be almost impossible for me to ever stop.

I do know people who don't consider fish the same as mammals, but in my personal opinion, I cannot eat fish if I do not eat the other animals. Of course, I cannot call people hypocrites because ... I am not completely vegan myself. I eat eggs, milk, and cheese, and other products made from animals. But usually I stray from products that had to kill an animal to make.

However, leather is a huge problem for me, because there is so much leather in the things I am exposed to everyday. It bothers me, but my reason for vegetarianism is a mainly personal ordeal and mostly about the consumption of animal flesh.


I have some of the same problems...

You are never going to be 100% vegan, it's impossible. All I can say is try to live your life as informed and compassionate as you can...

Last week my local grocery store sent a letter out informing me that it was recalling its ground beef (two pounds of which I had already served at a barbeque) for traces of the e coli virus.

I threw the other eight pounds in the trash. It was a bulk store (Sams Club) and I had already broken the meat down into pounds. There was no way to return it for a refund.

I was a vegetarian for seven years and I am seriously considering it again.

My sister is a vegetarian. I asked her this once and she says that sometimes, when she smells bacon, she misses it.

Meat is awesome. I can't eat without it.

Good for people who don't though.
