What do you eat?

I started being a vegetarian my sophomore year in H.S. So I have been one for like 8 years now. I was a vegan for a short while too. Anyone else this way? Or are you like my boyfriend who is the opposite...meatatarian and hates veggies?

I am a vegetarian although not perfect and plan to stop when I become pregnant. After which I will start again.

I found this interesting quote too:

"The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men."

I've been a vegetarian, and a vegan, but prefered veganism because I felt better but it was difficult at times to be able to find things that I could eat and wanted to without spending a fortune. I eat normally, I guess, now but probably fish once a week, and meet 2 days a week.

I'm definitely a pasta person, and a fruit person so since I live alone, I do a lot of simple things like fruit salad and yogurt for dinner or brown rice w/ fire roasted corn and grilled chicken mixed in, and pasta at least once a week. I actually do really well at home, but I eat badly at work if I'm not be absolutely vigilant because there's a lot of take-out and junk food here...if I worked somewhere else I'd probably be thinner

I've tried going green but just can't. I'm hypoglycemic and if I don't eat every 4 hours or so I get jittery, I get a headache and I've passed out before. I don't eat a lot of red meat, but I do load up on green veggies and carbs, and beans. I'm a total carb whore. Lately I've been eating yogurt, broccoli, and beans but I need to stop because even my dad is complaining about my fartiness, lol.

When I get into a phase of liking a particular food, I eat it allll the time until I get sick of it.

I'm so hungry now!

I've tried too, but I couldn't do it either. Now I just eat lots of veggies and grains, but I still enjoy mostly white meat and fish. Last night I made Tom Kha Kai, Thai spicy chicken soup with coconut milk. I put lots of onions, tomatoes, and mushrooms in it. It was so yummy and easy to make too.

Blinker, I'm always gassy. Doesn't matter what I eat. And those pills don't work either!

"because I felt better but it was difficult at times" ???

I love fish. A lot vegetarians eat fish actually. I have gone through periods where I ate nothing with a pulse at all, to eating fish and eggs, to begin vegan. I have eaten chicken over the last few years on occasion when I am anemic, but I never eat red meat. I don't even eat turkey on thanksgiving...that makes my oma mad haha.

WOW that sounds amazing! Where did you learn to make that?

I still get craving for red meat. Mostly when I'm walking down Clark street on the way to a Cubs game. Damn you hotdog vendors!

I actually stopping eating a lot of red meat way before I decided to become vegetarian. I had my last McDonalds Hamburger in 2001.

Ciao. Ciao.
I'm not a vegan or vegetarian but I am very conscious about food choices and try and avoid red meat almost exclusively. I will eat bison, but other than that I pretty much essentially eat fish and occasionally chicken as my only meat. Especially in the summer it is much easier to avoid meats as we can get (and are growing) plenty of our own veggies. To me trying to stay mostly in season and local is pretty essential too.

I used to be vegetarian but I had trouble getting enough protein in ways that agreed with my stomach and my hormones. So, now I eat meat but I stick to free range, organic, hormone-free meats, eggs, and dairy. We also have meat free nights and eat a LOT of veggies and whole grains to balance things out so that we're not relying as heavily on meat.

I am a a pescitarian because I sometimes have seafood. I do not miss eating red meat, chicken, or anything of the sort. I want to cut out all meat but it is very difficult to cut out seafood because it is really apart of who I am. I know that probably sounds weird. It's a good thing I love Salad and Greens!

My body responded better to veganism than just vegetarianism- I have no idea why as I'd think it would have been the other way around. The difficulty was just finding enough varied things without animal products in them whatsoever that were palatable and affordable.

I'm a vegetarian. I've thought about going vegan, but there are foods I like too much, to give up. I was thinking of doing the Raw Diet, maybe for a month or so.

I love meat! With me being pregnent I need some of that in my diet anyways. Then again, I love meat in general. It just tasts so good.

One of my friends is totally vegan and she's influencing my diet - which is a good thing, I need it. I've always preferred vegetables and whole grains anyway because the quality of meat just plain reeks here in Florida. It's difficult to enjoy meat when it's nothing but fat and gristle. I don't think I'll ever go strict vegetarian, though. There are some things that make it worth being an omnivore (like Gates Barbecue in Kansas City).

My cousin is a vegan - he says he wants to buy his parents a kitchen knife that makes animal noises whenever you cut into meat. Like pork would sound like a pig and beef would sound like a cow. He actually did find a knife that did this. (He's also 17 and amuses quite easily.)

I was a vegetarian back in the....eh ehm, 1980s and there were places where I had NOTHING to eat! When I got pregnant with my first child, about 7 years after going veg, I was sick all the time, and one day (while picking out wedding dresses) had a carnal craving for a hamburger. The idea made me sick, but I went with it, and I felt SO much better. I continued to feel better as I incorporated some meat into my diet (this is just ME, I am not advocating for anyone else.) My Man is an obnoxious carnivore, so our having different diets would have been difficult. I go through phases of eating NO meat at all and pigging out on the stuff (usually during my period, I must need the concentrated protein or iron or something)

Two of our kids are vegetarians, of their own volition. It is difficult to make a Family Dinner, but I manage....

I also have a buttload of food allergies, many of which developed in adulthood, so being a vegetarian again would entail strict veganism, without sea veggies, as I am allergic to them, also. I am HARD to feed. My entire family is hard to feed, with veggies and allergies and one kid with sensory issues who only eats like, 10 foods, it sucks.

I love veggies but I'm a tried and true meat-eater and I have no interest in going vegetarian or vegan. However, I would if I absolutely had to for a health reason.

I have a friend who believes that fish are just potatoes with gills. I almost agree...they're about as smart.

I'm a dedicated omnivore. I usually don't eat red meat, but will on occasion. The only meat I'm leery of is Pork...soooo fatty. I worry about some vegans and vegetarians not getting enough protein in their diet...but they usually balance that out with lower cholesterol levels.

I eat anything. But rarely red meat (which I like medium rare). I try to eat lots of veggies and some fruit, but mostly rice with meals...

Congratulations on the pregnancy, but its not necessary to eat meat to have a healthy pregnancy and baby. I was vegetarian throughout mine. I gained 30 pounds and had a 7 1/2 pound baby, which is large in my family. Just saying.

Lessee, I started out as organic vegan (which quickly turned into anorexia) about... 7 years ago. Slowly have gone back to ovo-lacto vegetarian, with sometimes shellfish and chicken.

I guess you can say I'm semi-vegetarian, but it's only for health reasons. When I don't eat enough protein, my hair falls out really badly and I feel weak all the time.

I don't ever plan to eat any kind of red meat ever again, pregnant, dying, whatever ailment.

Not everyone needs to, but I believe in listening to MY body, and when I was pregnant MY body said, "Eat a cow." and I did. And I felt SO much better. I was versed in proteins and iron etc but nothing helped the nausea and weak feeling.

Not everyone NEEDS meat, I know people who have gone through entire pregnancies with a vegan diet and were just fine, but I NEEDED it. I know my body so that's what I did. Like I said, I wasn't giving advice, just saying what I did myself.

However, I'd say more than half of the women I have worked with who were veg (I am a Maternal Infant Nurse and Lactation Specialist) have told me they, also, needed meat while pregnant. Not everybody, but it does seem to increase for a lot of women. I've never TOLD a pregnant women to eat meat, but many of them tell me they need it. Everybody is different.

Mileage and all that.

I totally agree. I really don't like when people from any dietary camp try to tell pregnant women what they MUST do or else they are BAD MOTHERS!!!! If your body doesn't need/want meat then listen to it. If it does, then, well, listen to it!

I was a pseudo-vegetarian from the age of 14 until I was 34. I know there's a more proper term for it, but I ate eggs, dairy, and occasionally fish/seafood. When I had to eliminate gluten from my diet I started eating more chicken, turkey and seafood. I wasn't a vegetarian for any ethical or moral reasons, I just don't like handling and cooking meat, and I can't stand the taste of beef or pork.
