Turning Veggie

I've been happily flexitarian for the last 3 years. Going for months without eating meat and then having the occasional piece of chicken. This has been great, because I don't feel bad for ordering the veggie option, but I can find easier sources of protein. But recently (for the last month about) every time I have chicken I start thinking. . . "Why am I eating this? It doesn't really taste good." This is the exactly the same thought I have on those few occasions I've had red meat in the last 8 years or so. (I stopped eating red meat about 8 years ago). Even when I know it's really good mentally, my favorite dish at my favorite restaurant per se, it's just not that good.

I think I'm turning veggie. Which overall I don't mind that much except then you become one of those people. With their special meals and "There's nothing for me to eat" and here they always act extremely superior to everyone else. Granted I'd be in good company. Many of my friends are veggies. It's just scary that my taste buds are deciding for me.
