Do You Have Unmet Vocabulary Needs?

Some funny made-up words involving food in this recent Washington Post article. My favorites are culinary bling-bling, flexitarian (we do need a better word for "semi-vegetarian," although I'm not sure I like this one), and outsaucing ("Use of canned, powdered or frozen sauces"). Also, from a publicist trying to explain why Heinz keeps coming out with new ketchup flavors: unmet flavor needs.

California comedian Darryl Henriques is quite explicit about what kind of vegetarian he is.

He calls himself an ovo-lacto-pesco-chicko-vegetarian.

In that case, it sounds like it might be easier to say what he doesn't eat, rather than what he does, no?
