This is hard one to explain.
I don’t love meat. I eat it because I like it (there’s a difference) and I need the iron and protein and I’m a picky eater and some of the veggies that have those things are not veggies I like.
But I don’t want to talk about what I’m eating. I don’t need to hear “Is this lamb? Baby lamb?” or “This is really tender. I wonder what kind of cow this is.” We don’t need to talk about the animal that gave it’s life for us to eat that hamburger. Period. I will start crying and I will stop eating.
I prefer veggies and I prefer whole wheat pasta but I do eat meat too. That does not mean I love it or that I will pick it every time. Because half the time. I won’t. That’s why I’m like a “half vegetarian”. I understand what I’m eating and I don’t like it but that’s how it is.
I know I’m not the only one in this position.
So what term can be used to describe this?
