eating ethically (as a 'hound)

Hearing about the massive beef recall in the US caused me to pronounce that I would just not eat anymore meat or poultry from factory farms. (Of course, this isn't the first time I'm thought of more or less "ethical" eating, since factory farming techniques have been well documented.)

Anyway, I can easily (& more expensively) buy humanely raised food to eat at home. But, what happens when I go out to eat? Am I supposed to be a modified vegetarian who eats fish? Or, should I ask where the beef/poultry is from? Is there some other way to tell?

I'd love to hear from people who have wrestled with this issue....thanks.
