I'm with the omnivores--and this is purely conjecture, but I'd have to
hedge my bets that once you move further from the equator the "omni"
moves toward the "carni" side and that the closer you are the more
"herbi" becomes the sustainable choice. I think that that's the main
thing--sustainability. What's the use in being an herbivore in VT who
is limited (in my current situation) to buying even Collards, leeks and
winter squash from out of state (hello folks, they're called STORAGE
crops for a reason!!) Anyway, I prefer the meat raised or hunted by
myself, my family and my neighbours to breaking down and buying
Cal-Organic soy. Here's to personal and sustainable choices, and to
matching your diet to your local climate and food system. I don't care
what my canines and molars are doing as long as I feel good about what
I'm eating and the ag system I contribute to....
