i read this article earlier today, and i rolled my eyes more than a couple of times. i really have a hard time with the "flexitarian" label. in fairness, the subtitle does say right up front that some people say that it's analogous to being "a little bit pregnant," so hooray for that acknowledgement, but there were still several quotes that made me cringe, especially those from dawn johnson blatner. like this one, for example:
"We know that people live longer and live healthier when they eat vegetarian, but it's just too darn hard to do it 100 percent of the time."
Think how many Americans regularly eat peanut-butter and jelly sandwiches, pasta, bean burritos and cheese pizzas as their main courses, says Blatner. "I do feel like that is a shocking thing, when you think about how much vegetarian food we eat without even trying."
