(UK) So You're Thinking of Becoming a Vegetarian? Get in the Queue
- [Huffington Post UK]
If the thought of unwittingly munching on horse meat has made you
think about leaving the animals in the field and adopting a meat-free
lifestyle, you are not the only one. Presently, 5% of British people
are vegetarian, but studies have shown that this figure could rise to
10% by 2015. In addition to this, more and more are turning to
"flexitarianism" where meat is cut out of the majority of meals.
Having been vegetarian for 14 years I have seen a huge rise in choice
both in the supermarkets and in restaurants, making it easier than
ever before to eat great food every day. That said, making the switch
to a vegetarian lifestyle can be more difficult that simply bypassing
the burgers at Tesco.
Reasons to Go Vegetarian
There is no doubt about it; horse burger-gate has certainly got the
'ick' factor. Not only are the majority of British people unaccustomed
to eating horse meat, it's a frightening thought to think that the
meat you believe to be beef could be all manner of animals. People
have lost trust in labels and a switch to vegetarianism is a safer
prospect for them.
