I'm curious about how much meat you eat on longer tours and why. Do you crave lots of meat for protein, or do you cut down on meat in favor of oatmeal, pasta, veggies, trail mix, and other food that feels lighter in the belly? Do you find that meats and other animal products that you pack along and cook at your campsite are more difficult to deal with because they need to be kept cold and go bad quickly? Any advice for how to deal with this? If someone offers to let you share their food, does it tend to be meat-centric? If you're vegetarian, do people get offended if you decline? Do you feel like you encounter more restaurants that have lots of meaty or lots of veggie options?
Personally, I'm a vegetarian, but for health and financial (not ethical) reasons. If meat is what's available, I'll eat it. But after being vegetarian it doesn't tend to agree with me, so I may try to ease it back into my diet before the summer just to keep all my options open, and to have the opportunity to try tasty meaty local dishes.
What about you?
