This is what i love about English 

That there's eventually a word for everything. Today's word?

(fleks.uh.TAYR.ee.un) n. A person who eats a mostly vegetarian diet, but who is also willing to eat meat or fish occasionally. —adj. (Flexible + vegetarian.)

apparently it was coined way back in 1992 -- it's taken me over a decade to hear of it. this must be a reflection of the number of carnivores i tend to hang with.
