I'm not but I want to.
The main reason why I haven't done it is that my dietician told me it was pretty difficult to obtain all the daily intake of calcium and protein. And since it's not easy to find stores with all the food needed in my city I guess I will have to wait.

I'm not a female or a Democrat so I am not a vegetarian.

God put cattle, pigs, chickens, and fish to be well seasoned and cooked to eat.

No. I eat a Mediterranean diet full of fruits, vegetables, poultry, fish, whole grains, legumes and olive oil. I'm not a huge fan of stuff like red meat. I think that Mediterranean diets are fairly healthy.

How many of you started to take non veg food at a very young age (less than nine years old)?

I think that eating meat is only justified if excluding meat from your diet will inhibit the normal functioning of your body, as human interests override animal ones. Otherwise, if you can lead a normal, healthy life on a vegetarian diet, you are not justified in killing for food. That is essentially the same argument that opposes vivisection in general but allows for exceptions in the cases of medicine for life-threatening diseases.

With that said, I don't mean I'll find you to be evil unless you're vegetarian. I'm not a moral saint in the Wolfian sense and I don't expect others to be, either. While I would hold that a moral saint, in my system of ethics, would not consume meat - that is, if one were to follow the system of ethics perfectly, one would be vegetarian - I'm not saying everyone needs to be a moral saint, or follow the ethics perfectly.

I don't think I ever could, even if I wanted to.

There's too much good stuff that either is meat or includes meat, especially steaks.

I went vegetarian for about 2 months, as an experiment. Mainly because there are so many chemicals that are put into our mean, such as ammonia to clean it, etc, that really, it's not even meat. All of the growth hormones they use on animals is sickening, and cruel. So I mainly did it for 1. For health reasons, and 2. I didn't believe in how they were treating their animals.

I do eat meat now, I just stray away from brands, that I *KNOW* are cruel to their animals, and raise them in filth. Such as Foster Farms, and Butterball.

I did notice I had a lot more energy, and was more active, when I went vegetarian, and that's for obvious reasons. Now, I do eat mean, just about once a week.

41% of vegetarians are men. But liberals are significantly more likely than conservatives to be vegetarian, so I guess that part is true lol

God put cattle, pigs, chickens, and fish to be well seasoned and cooked to eat.

Meat tastes splendid, although I don't like chicken that much. But being morally just outweighs eating good food for me, regardless, vegetable based foods taste pretty good as well. As well as feeling good, health wise.

I generally don't use it while I'm cooking. I never used oils when I cook, apart from when it comes to cooking tuna. As oil gives tuna a slightly richer taste and makes it less dry. I mostly use olive oil for pasta, bread, stuff like that. Something I also somehow put on almost everything is chicken seasoning for some reason? I put it on pasta, on fries, on mashed potatoes, on chicken, on fish...pretty much everything.
I've never really used coconut oil really, as it tends to be on the pricier side.

Ah, I like to fry stuff so I use it a lot. And I LOVE mashed potatoes, favorite food of all time. But I love dipping bread and stuff into olive oil. Theres also so many flavors of it too. Theres an olive mill near me that we go to sometimes, they gives tours of the farm and explain the process of making everything and then theres a beautiful garden to eat the food from their restraunt. Which they find a way to incorporate olive oil into everything and make it better that way. olive oil is god lol

I fry lots of stuff as well, but I have one of those "special" non-stick pans, so I don't really need to use oil.
I used to use oil more often than now. I like bread with cheeslets and olives generally (and possibly a spritz of chicken seasoning, as usual?). Sometimes I also like buying olive bread from Lidl. It's the best bread ever in my opinion!
I don't really go to restaurants that often, but when I do, it's a restaurant that makes fish dishes.

I became vegetarian when I was about 15. I did it for moral reasons. After being vegetarian for over two years, I've realized that I feel more energized and that I don't miss meat all that much. I've been considering switching to veganism, even if it's brief.
