Ah, sorry. I was just confused there for a second.

How often would you say you eat meat now? I'm not sure if by special occasion, you mean holidays.

I've had meat twice in the last 4-5 weeks but not sure how frequent it will be in the future.

So I ate meat at the wedding and also when I went to a restaurant the other day as I was craving protein.

I've not eaten beef for 10 years Very Happy  Didn't eat any pork up until about two years ago, so I went 8 years without pork too.

The label of 'vegeterian' shouldn't be important to me, it's the fact I'm putting in an effort that counts. Everyone will put in their own effort, some will avoid things like battery chickens and some will avoid meat all together.

^ I think that's fair comment.  You shouldn't feel too bad about eating the occasional piece of meat.  I always think if people take things to extremes it shows a form of closed mindedness.

I think nowadays it's much easier to take this view as there is so much more organic and free range meat and products around yes

Just had a veggie burger, 'twas awesome.

Except I almost charred it because I didn't realize you're not supposed to grill it as long as you do regular burgers.

My hubby, who's not entirely vegetarian, can't eat the mince or sausages from the cow we got - he saw the cow days before it was killed and that's all he can visualise when he eats the meat.  More's the pity as I'm not a big sausage fan but they were really nice! Little tongue man

I'm not really vegetarian, the veggie burgers are just a lot cheaper to buy.
