I'm A Closet Vegetarian!! Are You?

United States
December 14, 2015 6:38pm CST
I have been thinking about this for a while and realized that I am a vegetarian even though I seldom eat vegetables! It is by virtue of the meats I eat! Chickens since they are vegetarians as they only eat grains, grasses and other planted stuff. Fish since the ones I eat only eat algies and such as their diet. Even when I ate more Cow, I could claim the 'closet vegetarian' label as they only eat grains, grass and the like! I know! I Know!! You believe that I'm not a vegetarian, but I don't eat any meats that are from Meat eaters!!

@BelleStarr That's good!! Smoking 'grass' (also known as 'weed') can be bad for you even second hand from cows!!!

Good for you but I do like some meats so I guess you could call me a meat eater. I love the picture of the horses as they are such beautiful creatures.

@Marcyaz It depends!! Are you eating Vegetarian meats or Cannibalistic meats? If they are vegetarian meats (vegetarian animals) then your a closet vegetarian like me! If they are Cannibalistic meats then I am concerned that you might be a serious meat eater!

Well, I am a person who believes environmentalist, however having said this, I have to say that, ironically I prefer to eat meat rather than vegetables! You are right, I am absurd sometimes with my way of thinking, is not it?

@sugartoes When we lived on an army base all the soldiers used to bring the rabbits that they ran over to my mother to cook. We always had rabbit. I wonder if the rabbits are still all over on that base.

I see your point, but I have to ask if you are aware that chickens eat bugs and insects? Woodn't that be the same as eating meat? Just sayin

I couldn't help but comment on this one. Don't you like trout or salmon? Don't most fish eat other fish? Maybe fish are not meat and just fish. I'm trying to think of what animals that are sold in stores legally in USA do eat meat. No no I don't want to think of anything illegal. My mind is drawing a blank. Wait, I think you are a fishy vegetarian.

@gudheart I sometimes think people forget that to be a 'true vegetarian' they would eat 'No meat' which precludes 'meats' that are often excused. I prefer to be a bit mor pragmatic!!!! LOL!

So you don't eat bear, tiger or lions...I love veggies but I know enough about food and your body that I do eat protein, I prefer fish and chicken but sometimes eat the dreaded steak or chop. According to you then I am a vegetarian too..It looks good on me doesn't it?
