Transcript of Vegetarian 2
" I don't eat any red met and any pork. I can eat a little bit of chicken and turkey, poultry that are usually leaner and easy to process, but I just don't eat any red meat" (Sarah, 26). "Oh yeah sure. I eat all fish. To me that's enough meat. I really have stayed away from meat though. I suppose my system wouldn't like it too much if I started eating it again" (Steven, 62)! Nutrition "At times I felt refreshed, had improvements with my skin, and felt energized and then other times it was a nightmare. The loss of weight was a huge issue, moments of weakness affected other areas of my life and my body had some serious adjusting to do which was not very comfortable at times" (Juniper, 22). "I only lasted 2 months...I experienced weakness and inner body adjustment. I also lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks" (Juniper, 22). "I have every vitaminand calcium pill, but my body doesn't need those levels anymore, once your body gets used to your diet, your body doesn't require what people think it usually does" (Crystal, 20). Dining OUt "If I wanted to go to McDonalds and get fries that's all I can get there. Like even all their salads have meat in them. SO I don't eat just fries as my meal" (Brody, 22). "At restaurants you are the mercy of the kitchen because you have to hope or pretend there is not meat" (Liz, 21).
"I have been places where they have told me things are vegetarian, but they use chicken broth. So you have to enquire further about what things are cooked with" (Crystal, 20). Social Challenges/Experiences "I try to eat before I go to parties and other events in order to avoid awkwardness" (Jenni,22). "I was invited to a small social gathering at one of my friends' home. When I got there I soon found out that it was a barbeque. I went to the gathering with a couple of other vegetarians who were also invited. My friend who was hosting had forgotten that I had recently became a vegetarian. The main meal was a huge plate of Steak and Shrimp Salad. So I ended up having to pick the Shrimp out of the green salad and eat what was left over. Many individuals kept asking me why I was doing what I was doing and that I could eat meat just this once. I felt extremely uncomfortable and have stayed away from social gatherings where I know the main course is primarily meat unless it is being hosted by a close family friend or family member. Those situations you really can't avoid as much as you would like. It's also very difficult because you don't want to offent those within your inner circle" (Christy, 34). Affects on Relationships "He's really understanding about it, everything we make together, he never makes anything with meat in it, but he makes sandwiches like deli sandwiches. Then when we go out and eat he usually gets meat dishes" (Amelia, 23). "Even though there have some tough times, my friends have remained close to me and have accepted my choice to become a vegetarian. I think that individuals who abandon friendships because of different lifestlyes are shallow and inconsiderate" (Christy, 34) Purchasing Behaviors
"Well I do shop at Whole Foods. I like a lot of the special things they have, like all the natural juices. And they have really good salads and cheese. Other than that I go to any other regular grocery store" (Steven, 62). "You can go to a specialty store to find more organic products, but many mainstream stores are beginning to carry those products as well" (Juniper, 22). "I try to be smart when I shop, and I know where to get the cheapest food. Believe it or not, I find great deals at your typical grocery stores like Harmons, Smiths, and Maceys. I think they are finally understanding that people are more health conscious than in the past and they are changing their stores to meet those needs" (Jenni, 22). "Any grocery store will have what I need. There are some vegetarians that eat more unique foods, but I generally stay with fruits and veggies and grains. I don't have the money to shop at Whole Foods" (Liz, 21). “I guess my body is just used to it…..what I learned recently about how you get your protein [is] that you get enough protein by eating everything that is not meat, you just get more in meat, its more concentrated I guess” (Brody,22).
