I am just curious....
was it your choice or is your family vegetarian also?
are you strict about it? do you find it easy to shop/cook/eat out?

I'm a vegetarian. I've been one since I was about 14 years old. I do eat dairy though, thank goodness, or it may be really difficult to get my protein in each day. My mom and sister are both veg as well but DH is probably one of the biggest carnivores I've ever met!

I was for years, but then one day started eating meat again. Now I eat it but not often. One of the kids is a vegetarian... no one else in the family is.

I am a quasi-semi vegetarian My preference is to not eat meat, but I do on occassion if I am traveling or with family. I am also Celiac, so it adds a whole levels of complication

My mom has always been that way and now my niece prefers non-meat items. It is interesting because my niece had never met my mom until a month ago.

I've been a vegetarian since I was 12 or 13. My sister is too. DH definitely is not, but he doesn't seem to mind only eating meat a few times in a week. He's lost a lot of weight that way! I have no idea how to cook it anyway, but we just have plenty of other food for dinner. I don't really have a problem with eating at home. Going out usually is only a problem if we go to a bar or strictly American style place, which is why I always prefer most ethnic spots! I don't plan on raising the children vegetarian, but they'll probably eat less meat at home then most kids.

I used to be ages ago. But while pregnant w/ my 9 year old I started craving steak. Turned out I was anemic, and really that was my biggest craving. I wanted red meat. Sounds absolutely disgusting, and meat still grosses me out (I refuse to touch w/ my hands while prepping to cook) but I get hungry for it frequently.

I too am celiac Kat! What a pain it is!! How bad is yours? I'm fairly mild, I don't normally do 100% gluten free (although I know I should), but I'm finding that now that I am due to a GD diet that my gastro-intestinal issues are so much better. Go figure. LOL! Sorry ladies, TMI, I know!

Jennifer, mine is pretty severe. I had symptoms for 11 yrs. before being diagnosed and I had no villi left at all. It took 2 yrs. gluten free to fully heal, so needless to say, I am 100% compliant with the diet, but I am not one of the super crazies that that refuse to eat anything not prepared by me! (I travel for work, so I would waste away to nothing!)

Sorry for the Thread hi-jack, you may now return to your regularly schedule discussions.........
