How would you describe your diet (not yet vegetarian, vegetarian, vegan, raw food, etc)?

I'm mostly lacto-ovo, all-though I occasionally eat shell fish, and in the past have been pescatarian. For me, it is about the (lack of) central neural tissue in what I am eating/farming and what that means for any chance for it to model its own state. So in general I try to source my food to lower the amount of suffering my own sustainment creates. I'm not great at it by I try.

How long have you followed your current diet?

Around the current one for 19 years.

How long have you lived in the Metro DC area?

About 10 months.


I've been vegetarian or mostly vegetarian for quite a while. Since I'm usually the only person I'm around who shares my concerns, I don't get a lot of advice, help or encouragement.
