Yay. I have been vegetarian for ethical reasons for 25 years and have, like another poster on here, been in hospital situations where my food choices were severely restricted to a small handful of things. And I eat eggs and most dairy products so it shouldn't be that freaking difficult. :P
On that note, it's been interesting to see the growing acceptance of non-animal products over the last ten years or so. I'm in a large city in the Midwest and remember begging my mom to specialty order Morningstar veggie burgers from the one hippie co-op that carried them. This was in the mid to late 90s. When Whole Foods rolled into town, I thought I'd died and gone to vegetarian heaven. Glad to see some hospital systems finally catching up to what I can now buy at Walmart.
