& pretend vegetarian.

& i'm actually surprised "some manner of food allergy" isn't its own category. we ought to have plenty of those.
Nik Chaikin · 15 years, 11 months ago
I'll eat anything.
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Same here. I'll try anything at least once.
iPauley Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
No restrictions. well, that's not true -- I restrict myself from eating anything I don't like. :-P

no diet, no low-carb, no "free," no low-caffiene... bring on the high-test. :-D

My meals, except breakfast, must contain some kind of meat.

boo hiss. too tired, will reply in agonizing length, an appropriate response, minimal wordage or fragment sentances and lists in the morning.
danced with Lazlo · 15 years, 11 months ago
yeah.
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 15 years, 11 months ago
I'm a Vegan, well I wasn't born on Vega, but my parents are from Vega and we go there on vacation, and some day we are going to go back there to live.

As for my diet I make sure all the animals I eat are dead.

Liveist!
nate... · 15 years, 11 months ago
I'll eat absolutely anything... as long as it won't kill me. I'm not a primadonna.

fish and peanuts, unfortunately, will.
*sigh*

I fucking hate allergies.

K-Lyn · 15 years, 11 months ago
I only eat stuff I like...
Andrea Krause Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Yeah I was going to say none because I have no restrictions, per se....but anyone who knows me (and has seen my spreadsheet) knows that my tastes themselves restrict me pretty heavily. :)
Rachel Marie aka RAI · 15 years, 11 months ago
Well, for Lent I gave up caffiene... does that count?
Kris 'engaged' Bedient Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
I gave up chocolate, I think it counts
sheryls · 15 years, 11 months ago
i dont have any restrictions on what i am allowed to eat, but what i allow myself to eat is usually of the low-fat, moderate carbohydrate low-to-no sugar variety.

although, i do have a lactose intolerance that restricts me from drinking milk and eating yogurt or ice cream. most cheeses are fine :P
Mamalissa! Back · 15 years, 11 months ago

I *occasionally* eat fish. But other than that i'm meat free!
K. D. Lurker · 15 years, 11 months ago
I'm not a true vegetarian because I eat poultry and seafood...didn't realize until about 2 years ago that there's actually a name for that ("penne-pollo vegetarian").
Andrea Krause Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Isn't it pesco/pollo? penne is pasta...
K. D. Lurker Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Oops, sorry....too much multitasking this morning!
A.J. Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
If one can be a pesco/pollo "vegatarian" then it seems to me that one can equally be a pesco/pollo/carne vegatarian! About eggs there could be some discussion, but otherwise, either you eat animals or you don't.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
It actually comes downs to not eating mammals.
A.J. Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
What is the point of that? Parrots are a lot smarter than cows. Why is it ok to eat an intelligent non-mammal and not a stupid mammal? And in any case I don't disagree if someone wants to abstain from mammals, but doing that doesn't give one the right to call one's self a "vegatarian". That would be like saying someone was a "carnivore" because they don't eat grain products.
lawrence Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
You eat parrots?
nate... Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Who doesn't?

Bender Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Eh. Parrots are gamey. ;P

(She says as her small green parrot, who was playing a game of knockthingsoffofthedeskandwatchthemgoclunk, slips and falls from the desk, then flies back to the cage as if to say, "you did *not* see that". He's lucky he has hollow bones, that bird.)
danced with Lazlo Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
not everyone who doesn't eat some forms of meat does it for the same reason. i know from experience that sometimes its just waaaay easier to call yourself a vegetarian because its something that people understand and usually don't question. one may not always be in the mood to go into a long-winded explanation of what they will and won't eat and *why* everytime they're invited out to lunch, when just saying "I'm vegetarian" will solve the problem quite nicely.
A.J. Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Ok, sure, but that falls into the category of "white lie" or whatever you want to call it. That doesn't change the fact that someone who eats chicken and fish is not a "vegetarian". They just aren't. It would may be convenient for such a person to SAY they are vegetarian at a steak dinner, but that doesn't make them one. Clearly we DO need a term for people who are chicken and fish eaters, but equally clearly "pesce-pollo vegetarian" isn't that term, because it is an oxymoron.
stealthlori Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
yeah, i think i'd just say "i don't eat red meat" if that's the case. or "i don't eat red meat, and i also keep kosher." that seems fairly straightforward and understandable to me. but coming up with a longwinded term like pesce-pollo-vegetarian to say "i'll eat animals unless they're mammals" seems like people are trying to claim a dietary stance they don't really hold to.
Bender Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
I thought it was pesco-pollo

unless you only eat chicken and hollow pasta

or I'm ignorant
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
What if you only eat the hollow in the pasta and not the pasta itself?
emilie is CRANKY · 15 years, 11 months ago
i'm a vegetarian, except at mealtimes.

*ducks*
sheryls Back · 15 years, 11 months ago

and not because you like animals, but because you hate vegetables!

stealthlori · 15 years, 11 months ago
if it's classifiable as food, i'm likely to try it. the few items i categorically won't eat are all based on the "yick" factor, and not any dietary or allergic restrictions.

i try to be virtuous and eat mostly complex carbs, although i've pretty much fallen off that wagon these past few months. and i always try to supplement my meals with chocolate, whenever possible. :D

It's a girl! · 15 years, 11 months ago
I was a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 16 years. Then I got pregnant. For the first two trimesters I stayed veggie, but for the last couple months I was like "ohmygodwantmeatnow!" Andy and I had a routine of going for my prenatal check and then going for Chinese buffet where I would eat huge platefuls of pork dumplings.

After Maddie was born, I tried going back to being veggie, but I'd already been hooked by the dark side. Pork has lost its appeal though and I have never liked beef--even the smell of it makes me feel queasy.

I eat fish and poultry now, which I guess makes me a pesce-pollo vegetarian, but that just seems like a stupid term. I eat dead animals-- how am I a vegetarian?
caroline: tired. · 15 years, 11 months ago
I eat whatever i want..hee hee. i am young and have a speedy metabolism.. *oh yeah*
just kidding. i know it won't last long. so i'm enjoying it now.
well, i do have one restriction at the moment- no meat on fridays. lent. so i get olives on my pizza. :) yum olives. only black though. i don't like green olives, in any form.
*joolee* Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
duuuuude, your like, from close to me. I used to live in Blue Bell...rock.
caroline: tired. Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
hey, i know where Blue Bell is! cool!
sheryls Back · 15 years, 11 months ago

green olives was a food i didnt like until i was 24 o.O

along with mostseafood, wine, bleu cheese, sweet pickles/relish and ketchup.

Phoenix Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
whoa.

An American who didn't like ketchup until the age of 24? Where's your page in the Guinness book of records? ;-P
caroline: tired. Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
I don't like ketchup either....
:P
A.J. Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
You aren't 24 yet. ;)
caroline: tired. Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
I don't care. i still don't like it. :P
I also don't like excessive icing on cakes and stuff. *shudder*
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
hrmm..agreed to a point. For me, it depends on the type of icing.
caroline: tired. Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
The only icing i like is the icing on ice cream cake. i guess it's the same, just frozen, but it tastes a lot better that way. less pasty.
stealthlori Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
i don't mind a small amount of good buttercream icing or ganache, but those mounds of shortening-based "frosting" on some cakes revolt me. if i'm faced with that stuff i try to scrape as much off as possible and just eat the cake. :)
caroline: tired. Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
that's the stuff i'm talking about: the "frosting" you speak of. makes me sick...eew.
I like cake though. and sometimes cake has good icing, used sparingly.
*joolee* · 15 years, 11 months ago
NO FISH! FISH BAD!!!!!
Bender Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
feesh!
soul groove feline · 15 years, 11 months ago
vegetarian *and* kosher, you insensitive ipod? :P

i used to eat fish, but now i opt for the vegetarian futo maki when i go out for sushi. when i can find a soy alternative to milk, i'll usually have that instead of real moo juice... though i do enjoy cheese a great deal. and soy cheese is just not cheese.
sheryls Back · 15 years, 11 months ago

no, soy cheese is crap.

for some reasons cheese does not set off my belly and it makes me a very strange lactose intolerant.

Silk is the One True Soymilk, kthxbye ;)

(i'm sure there is a less-commercialized one that is fantastic but let me tell you something about Toledo... ;)

A.J. Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Mmmm. Chocolate soy milk!!!!

does like one glass of lowfat milk set you off? I thought maybe I was lactose intolerant for a while, but really for me, I think it is just a matter of fat, and amount and the weather and the stars. In other words my innards are irritable because while too much ice cream is death, cheese or a bowl of cerial with milk is no problem.
stealthlori Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
when andrew was lactose intolerant as a young'un he never had trouble with cheese of any sort, or yogurt either -- just milk, ice cream, pudding and such. the cultures and aging of cheese/yogurt really seemed to make a difference for him.

but he grew out of his l.a., so maybe the childhood sort of intolerance isn't as all-encompassing as the typical adult form.
Phoenix Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
and soy cheese is just not cheese

so true. And you poor Canadians don't even have easy access to raw milk cheese...
Bender Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
what's that? unpasteurized?
Phoenix Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Yup. It's unpasteurized (due to EU regulations it mustn't be heated beyond 40 C) and untreated in any other way.
