I became aware of what I chose to put in my body over 30 years ago. Note that I did not label my self as Vegetarian, Ovo-lacto, Vegan or whatever. I am turned-off by the labeling which seems commonplace these days. I consider myself fairly knowledgeable as far as nutrition, which is a term I prefer to use. I stopped eating meat, poultry, pork and seafood in 1978 and do consume dairy products. My weights been stable throughout and I have no health issues. Do I care what others eat? Absolutely not. The folks who insist on asking me to justify my food choices for no apparent reason, I just consider rude and defensive simply because my choices call into question their own.

I agree with that Timmie. I hate using labels and terms to describe what I am or what I do and don't do. And when people ask me why I'm a vegetarian, I tell them "Because it makes me happy." Simple as that.

I absolutely agree. Who needs labels? I don't eat meat, dairy or any other animal products. At work I'm constantly hounded with "WHY???" I tell them it's my body & my choice. Then I threaten to eat sour kraut for a week if they don't stop.... lol. People seem to think it's funny to sit next to me & naw on a Big Mac. When I gag they think it's the meat. Nope, it's because they eat like the cow they are consuming.

Things that used to go MOO make me salivate, but I am a bit of a glutton. One word of advice I recently received was to not eat anything raw - veggies included - whilst traveling for fear of food poisoning.

Yea, this is one of those topics I don't like to enter, but I have to say I agree with most everyone's comments.

I am not in a position in life to need to kill an animal, and the idea of killing an animal is not something I am fond of when there is really no reason for it... when faced with eating meat I usually think of the animals life and just knowing the industry that killed it turns me off pretty quickly. I'll probably eat meat again, but I will know that particular animals life, and I will know how it died, and then I'll probably feel good about eating it.
Netherlands in April, Pacific Northwest in June, then on up to work at the family business, a Victoria BC hotel for tourist season... then a hop over to Montreal for the fall (hopefully)! A traveler's life for me!
