Vegetarians Who Like Sausage

Are you interested in being a vegetarian, but concerned that you might not be able to adjust? Not to worry…you can become a flexitarian.

As vegetarianism gains in popularity and increases its market niche, a variation has developed. The flexitarian is a person who eats primarily vegetables, but also indulges occasionally with meat.

The designation fits people like 28-year-old Christy Pugh, who says, "I usually eat vegetarian. But I really like sausage."

Christy says, "Sometimes I feel like I'm a bad vegetarian, that I'm not strict enough or good enough. I really like vegetarian food, but I'm just not 100 percent committed."
