For funsies? Actually, I went vegetarian all those years back (like, five? Yipes! Maybe it's four) just to try it, too. Then of course, it stuck. Now I just can't eat meat.
I'm going vegan now, just because I love eating healthy and I love veggies sooo much. And fruit. Also, I get a chance to cook with TONS of fun new stuff, like, steel-cut oats, miso, bulgur wheat.
Also, dairy (cheese in particular) and I have never got along TOO well. I mean, well... having IBS makes things interesting, so snarfing the raw veggies helps me, lol. In fact, I couldn't even eat vegetarian pizza because the cheese and white crust were killer for me.
BTW, if you're vegetarian, than you are. If you simply avoid red meat, than fine. Better than nothing, eh? It's still giving the same message that you're boycotting the killing of other animals.
