being vegetarian
#17
I'm vegan, have been since college. I've never worried much what other people thought of it. It's not unhealthy if you do it right, by which I mean apply common sense and pay attention to nutrition. My five year old has been mostly vegan since birth (with the occasional pancake or dollop of frosting from a birthday cake), and she has more strength and stamina than any other kid on the playground. When I first went vegetarian in high school the nuns were very supportive and spoke to me about the Catholic tradition of the practice;  they calmed my mother down about it.  My Confessors have never been bothered, either. They've just reminded me that fasting is a sacrifice and so I should choose what to give up with that in mind. No problem.
