    Lacto- ovo- pesci?
    What's the word for someone who doesn't eat red meat or chicken, but does eat eggs, milk/cheese, and fish? Well, whatever the word is, that's what Juliet and I are, at least for the past several months. We finally read one too many stories about the mistreatment of animals in factory farms, and decided to try a nearly-meat-free existence for a while. So far it's been easier than we expected...especially since we're still eating fish. We're eating even more fish than we used to, and more pasta. Trouble is, there are big issues with fish, too (see the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch for example. Plus, we haven't quite managed to match the variety of food that we used to enjoy. We're gradually adapting, we eat meat or fowl in some circumstances, like when we're at a dinner party where it's served, or, um, when it's on a menu and it looks really really good. Ahem.

    We may end up backsliding a bit by eating some meat from sources that are supposedly better (in the sense of just killing the cows and birds, not torturing them for months first). We'll see.
