Only if she had no problem with me eating meat and cooking me non-vegetarian meals.

Vegetarian, sure, as long as there's no hassles with my eating preferences.

Vegan. probably not. Some of them are like religious fanatics.

I think people should eat the foods they like, make them feel good, and keep them healthy. That can vary dramatically from person to person. There's someone who posts to the forums -- I forget his username -- who is avidly against eating veggies & posts lots of links supporting his dietary choices. Seems a little weird to me, but to each his own.

I'm an ovo=lacto pescatarian. I refuse to eat factory feed lot animal meat which has been raised in deplorable conditions.
There's still such a wealth of food to choose from, that it's never presented a problem. Most of my relationships have been with carnivores.

You cannot eat a lifetime of starchy carbs but luckily I LOVE vegetables.

It's not that hard to find humane raised and slaughtered animal products. (yes some vegans take exception to that term and believe nothing is humane that interferes with an animal's agenda and I'm ok with that)

In the grocery stores you can find the "certified humane" label on animal products and packaged meats in cryovac packaging or Murray's chicken for example. Also you can order online.

Certified Humane | A Project of Humane Farm Animal Care

I'm lucky to live on the south east coast in Florida and we have a fantastic fish guy in a little building on the water who has daily fresh catch that I can SEE with my own eyes. They've been in business for around 60 years. It may offend some people but for me they are caught and killed as humanely as possible. Let's face it animals eat each other too. I just cannot stand the thought of them being tortured - sometimes intentionally by awful people - while giving up their lives for humans. I was surprised to see some frozen fish in Sam's Club Copper River Seafoods from Alaska that seems to claim high standards. NOT the packages that are labeled "Alaska wild caught - product of CHINA. WTF. We catch the fish in Alaska but send it to CHINA to process???? I even saw that in Target!

Our Story

You can tell your son that he only needs a few eggs a month to avoid a B12 deficiency and it's not that hard to locate "certified humane" eggs if he's really committed. NOT CAGE FREE either pasture raised or certified humane.These boys in college have enough trouble FOCUSING they don't need to live on pizza, beer, and no protein for no good reason, right? I used to actually SHIP steaks or chicken to my kid to make sure he was eating them and I knew he wouldn't sell them once they were in the freezer haha. At the time I think I was using QVC.
Thanks for that! He's also a distance swimmer in college so he needs to eat WELL. So far, I've found only cage-free eggs (he told me how little that really means) but I will try to find the certified humane sticker.

I'm going to check our local farmers market too to see what I can find.

Done it, did it and will do it again. I have been surprised that they would want to kiss a meat eater

Except this poster is neither vegetarian nor vegan.

Every now and then it's good to be reminded how little we've evolved.

Probably not...I would have NO idea what to cook for him, and I am a decent cook.....but I think a more FAIR question is would a true vegan date a meat eater???!?!?!? THEIR standards are far more likely to be the deal breaker....

I was really hoping that this thread would be able to remain on topic and civil. After having to delete many posts, that was not to be the case.
