Well, sort of.
I’ve been a sort of vegetarian for most of my life. A strict vegetarian would laugh at my use of the word.
When I started, I was very strict with myself – no meat – no fish – no poultry.
Now…. well, no mammals.
I used to freak out if my fried rice had pork in it.
Now… I just pick it out if I’d forgotten to say vegetable fried rice.
I will steer clear of things I know are made with beef or beef stock or any other product that has come from a mammal. I had the choice of minestrone soup the other day -it’s often made with beef broth – so it was a no-go.
I feel like a hypocrite – why one type of animal rather than another? I had vowed never to eat ell – yucky – then I did and they’re tasty – at least in sushi.
Any foods you refuse to eat on ethical/moral grounds?
