Food Exposed with Nelufar Hedayat is a timely look at the future of food for the globe. In this episode, she visits a lab working on meeting the demand of consumers joining the "veg rev," including the growing numbers of flexitarians (semi-vegetarians) who only eat meat occasionally.
One of the annoying parts of the vegetarian and vegan movements, especially on shithole platforms like Twitter, is that the most vocal adherents can get cult-like about policing language and behavior. To wit: the vegan bro who doxxed a vegan woman who had bought a (non-vegan) ice cream cone for a child.
The term "flexitarian" is great, because it gives everyone the wiggle room while acknowledging a mindful attempt at reducing animal products in their diets. There's currently a push among dieticians to consider going meatless one day a week, especially with kids, to acclimate them to the trend toward less meat consumption.
