Someone who would be vegetarian for ethical reasons, who agrees philosophically with vegans and vegetarians, but who can not restrict their diet in a strict or inflexible way. Rather than eliminating meat and/or animal "products" from their diets, the compromise vegetarian lessens the impact of his or her diet by restricting animal consumption, eating much less meat than typical, scheduling vegan or vegetarian meals whenever possible, but not turning down any food they might need on the appropriate occasion.
"We ran out of money for food this month and got canned chili at the food bank today, so we're just going to have to be compromise vegetarians."
"The dairy industry is destroying the planet's water, but we have WIC and are too poor to turn down free cheese and dairy, I guess that makes us compromise vegetarians."
