Example Sentence: One in eight Britons claim to be vegetarian or vegan and another one in five flexitarian, eating meat-free sometimes; and although meat consumption rose over the last decade the big rise was in chicken, not red meat. Going veggie for the sake of the planet, rather than the animals, might have sounded eccentric (strange) a generation ago but it barely raises a millennial (Gen Y born 1981-1996) eyebrow now.
