Is anyone here a vegan or vegetarian?

If so, what are your reasons for being so?

Animal cruelty?

General dislike of meat?

Healthier lifestyle?

I'm not. My BIL is for animal cruelty reasons.

Sometimes...until I get a hankering for a burger.  It's all for health reasons.

I was vegan for 2 years and vegetarian for 7. my Neurologist will not allow me to be a vegetarian with multiple sclerosis (MS). I only eat meat 4 times a week, as a compromise. I cannot handle animal abuse and mistreatment!

I've been a vegtarian since I was in 10th grade...um, that would be 15 years now? 

I would go vegan but I can't give up my daily yogurt! And every so often ice cream, milk (in cereal/shakes), and various other dairy products! 

My mom was a pescatarian my entire life. And I was a pescatarian in high school 10th to 12th--I dropped all meat except seafood. When I moved out for college, I stopped eating all seafood! 

I started eating chicken in small doses (i.e I have to cook it or Chickfila has to cook it!) because my husband is a carnivore! He ONLY eats meat! Can we say opposites attract!?????! It makes things awkward at mealtime. Supernanny would not like me at dinnertime making different meals for each family member. My kids can choose for themselves. I had my first ped tell me that kids don't need meat until 2, so I make my husband go by that rule and than they can have all the chicken nuggests their little hearts will want! :)

Nope no way I could, I like meat.

Even though I didn't eat pork for almost 10 years

Not me. I love steak too much to be vegetarian. But I do eat a ton of veggies. I love them as much as I love meat.
