First, don’t call it a diet. Diets don’t work, ask Dr. Jenn. This is a lifestyle choice for better health and nutrition.
Second, I’m sure there are hard core vegan types who would laugh or call me a hypocrite. Well I’m not going there. I’ve enjoyed plenty of tasty vegan meals, but it’s better we just not go there.
Third, I am not nor am I sure I ever could be a strict vegetarian. I am now one of those lacto-ovo-pesce types. I am an omnivore and I like my cheese, eggs, and fish.
What I have done is given up consuming land animal meats, for now. That means no more chicken. No more steak, pork chops, or hamburgers, and no more lamb, mmm… lamb.
This semi-vegetarianism is defined by various sources as one who eats a primarily plant-based diet with the occasional inclusion of meat products. For this little project of mine, however, my only meat product shall either swim, crawl, or attach themselves to the ocean floor. Any questions?
