I have been a vegetarian for almost 13 years. Today, a friend of mine offered me fish. He knows I am a vegetarian, but didn't think fish counted. I know there are different levels and types of vegetarianism, but I never understood fish-eating vegetarians. I was wondering if there were any other veggies on the site. Vegan? Ova-lactos? What are people's reasons for not eating meat? I guess to be fair, what are people's reasons TO eat it? I am an ova-lacto (egg and dairy eater). My reasons are a disgust for eating flesh and an inability to reconcile the living breathing animal with the cooked piece of flesh on the plate. I prefer my animals alive and happy. That is just me. How about you?
