What is a flexitarian?

See also

So, you want to be a vegetarian, but can't bear to say goodbye to those late-night buffalo chicken tenders? You try to cut down your meat consumption to help the planet...maybe you go vegetarian all week, but have a turkey burger on Saturday, or maybe you don't eat meat for a whole month, but then you're at a Red Sox game and those Fenway franks are calling your name.....you are a FLEXITARIAN.

Sure going vegetarian or vegan is the best way to go, but for many raised on nightly dinners of meat & potatoes, its hard to go cold turkey on meat (pun intended!). If you are one of these people that is struggling to go vegetarian, try cutting your meaty-meals in half, or be a weekday vegetarian. Afterall, if all the women in the U.S. ate half as much meat as they do now, it would be like a quarter of the population going completely vegetarian! So, don't give up, compromise with yourself. And maybe someday you'll be ready to take the big step to veggies only! Plus, this is a good way to kickstart your spring diet.
