For awhile now, I haven't been a fan of dairy products..
Instead of completely avoiding milk.. I'm thinking of going to supplement and have a vegetable based milk.
I have been on constant research of meat that has been RSPCA approved but I can't go the full millage and become a vegetarian.
But I want to see if there is anyone like me or any one else,
Tell me your story- whether you eat meat, vegies, fruit only or all...

I LOVE meat, veggies and fruit. And I cannot start my day without a glass of milk. I do understand food aversions though. My mom and my son cannot LOOK at food before 11 am.

I love ice cream, cheese, and nothing better than a bowl of cereal with milk on it. I am however one of those people who developed adult onset lactose intolerence. Goodie for me. I have learned to enjoy vanilla soy milk and lactose free ice cream. I can even get away with swiss, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese. I can not under any circumstance give up red meat. I love vegetables, when they are served with meat. I love grains, when they are turned into bread for me to slice and add meat to for a sandwich. I enkoy eating from all of the food groups in a well balanced way. I have tried to go vegan and it didn't take long for me to drop too much weight and get sick frequently. I operate better with meat protien than I do with vegetable protien. I now eat whatever doesn't outrun me.

I cut out meat to get my cholesterol down. I really like yogurt and kefir.Just made a pot of yogurt for me and dd. I recently tried some vanilla almond milk and that was good.In a pinch I make oat milk with some maple or agave sugar. I am leaning towards less meat though I did want to try some bison,or atleast have dh try it. I really like making fermented foods. Variety I think is best with or without dairy or meat. Recent news of ecoli in the foods has prompted me to grow more veggies at home.

When I first started keeping ducks and geese when I was 12 - I became vegetarian. I still ate dairy- and eggs- just no meat of any kind. My mother pestered me to at least include fish in my diet- as I was still so young and growing. I continued with that kind of diet for many years- but eventually started eating red meat agian- but still no chicken- as I considered it to be "friend of duck" so couldnt eat it. Now days- I eat pretty much anything- but would still absolutely NEVER eat duck or goose.
I dont ever use the eggs my ducks lay - I buy chicken eggs from the supermarket- I was visiting a friend for lunch one day- and she had prepared a Quiche with duck eggs...i did eat it - only so as not to offend her- It was nice- But I would just prefer not to eat duck eggs.

I can't tolerate any cow's milk, last time I had cheese I ended up in the hospital with nonstop purging (after 8 hours of vomiting, I didn't want to wake mr saddi).

I was a vegan for a few years and then a vegetarian for several after that. I went back to eating a small amount of meat (and have increased this) due to health problems. I have always liked dairy, although I am not a big milk drinker. I ate almost exclusively Kosher dairy for a long time, but have let this fall by the wayside in recent years as well since I am eating more meat.

The thing with me is that I was never a vegetarian predominately because of moral objections or anything. I simply am not a fan of meat. It has been this way since I was a small child. I have always love veggies. I could eat fresh vegetables as my primary diet day in and day out. I have mostly enjoyed meat sort of as a condiment or side dish and the vegetable as the main course.

I love meat, dairy and breads. I could almost live on bread and cheese and sometimes nothing but a glass of milk will do. My favorite meat is beef, but avoiding it seems to help my endometriosis. Unfortunately, my dislike of fruits and vegetables doesn't help me in the weight department. I like some vegetables and fruits; broccoli, lettuce, potatoes, bananas, strawberries. I try to make myself eat more of them all the time, but when I am hungry for a snack, the last thing I would think of is a piece of fruit.
