Food/Healthy Lifestyle: A little bit on Itarians
Focus on Flexitarian
According to a Wikipedia entry, Semi-Vegetarianism, flexitarian has been voted by the American Dialect Society as the year's most useful word in 2003, and by 2012, the article says, "The term was listed for the first time in the mainstream Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.
The article defines flexitarian as a vegetarian who occasionally eats meat.
The Wikipedia article on semi-Vegetarianism includes paragraphs on Pollotarians (occasionally poultry), Pesce-pollotarians (occasionally fish/poultry - like the currently popular Mediterranean diet).
Mary Keltner sends a link to a story in the New York Times, FlexitarianHealthy, Meet Delicious by Mark Bittman, about taking the middle ground - being flexitarian - and eating a mixed diet higher in vegetable content with a modest and occasional intake of meat, versus the purist vegetarian or the other extreme, a diet high in animal protein, fast food - and factory food.
Flexitarians? Have a lot of them in my family, though I never heard any of them describe themselves as such, get denominationally argumentive. Maybe there are others here. And maybe, probably, it's better not to label ourselves or others as any kind of Itarian, lest we fall prey to the next Inquisition, which humankind seems so prone to manifest at times when those ODing on righteousness - as they interpret 'divine' messages - are wont to do. -EW
