Are you a Demi-veg?

From the 'Shopping Around' section in The Universe dated 25 July, 1986:

A new word has entered the English language to describe the fast-growing sector of the population which is partly, but not quite, vegetarian "Demi-Veg".

According to the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Information Bureau, more than three million people in this country have already moved towards a semi-vegetarian lifestyle by cutting out red meats and food high in salt, sugar and fat, and replacing them with fruit and vegetables, low fat dairy products, eggs, fish, poultry, wholemeal bread, pasta and rice.

The major advantage of a demi-veg lifestyle is that it is healthy, but it is also easy and inexpensive, especially if you take advantage of fruit and vegetables in season.

The basic rule is to use vegetables as the main item of a meal, with the protein as the accompaniment, instead of the other way round.
