I recently discovered that there is an actual term for my sometimes insatiable cravings for vegetables, even preferring them over meat. During my travels, I have opted for the vegetables on many occasions and continue to prefer them when I return home. Meat seems to become less of an anchor for my meals these days and I go days without eating any at all.
According to Ask.com, that makes me a “flexitarian.” What, exactly, does flexitarian mean? “Flexitarian” is used to describe a diet or a person who eats a “mostly” vegetarian diet, occasionally including meat. But what exactly does this mean? Does it mean once a week or once a day? It’s really up to you, as there is no standard agreement or definition, though perhaps someday there will be.
What I will admit is that I still love great barbeque, especially at “Bennie J’s Smoke Pit” in Huntsville, TX. If you are ever traveling on Interstate 45 between Houston and Dallas, it’s worth the detour.
