I don't think I even posted that original "Flexitarian" article from a few months back that had people all atwitter, but I did want to point out this estimate: "Flexitarians [people who usually or often, but not always, eat vegetarian] could be as high as 40 percent of the U.S. population, according to Charles Stahler, co-director of the Vegetarian Resource Group." Now, of course Stahler has good reason to want to see the proportion that high, but it wouldn't surprise me. The grocery store trends are showing it - grocers aren't trying to stock meatless and dairyless items for vegans, but for the growing number of people who want them some of the time. And however you slice it, that's a good thing.
