Flexitarian

blending; noun
A person who eats meat less often than an average American but does not completely abstain from meat. Often done for health reasons, these people consume diets high in vegetables, fruit, nuts, and other types of foods but do not limit themselves whenever they have a craving for meat or it is simply more convenient to eat meat. For instance, some will not consume meat on a regular basis but may indulge when going on dates, eating Thanksgiving, or at professional functions.
 
Advocates call it flexitarianism, but critics say being a little bit vegetarian is like being a little bit pregnant.
Etymology : Blending of "flexible" with "vegetarian"
