VGT Omnivore's hundred!

I can across this activity the other day.. The foodie that i am could not resist the idea of checking all that i have ever had in this list... After the excerise i realise for all the things that i have tried, i still cant get myself to try something that walks on four legs! Sometimes i ponder if i can bring myself to eat a chicken and fish, what is the difference between these small creatures and the bigger ones say goat, lamb, pork... Beef however being absolutely out the question because of my religious beliefs. I still cant bring myself to eat bigger animal..For some reason i feel they cant be on my plate!
