I was raised in a kosher household, and am feeling like I would like to get back into keeping kosher. Kosher (or Kosher-ish) MeFites, how do you do it?

I'm not asking for information on religious law. Rather, I'd like to hear about diverse ways of keeping kosher in real life so that I can find the best approach for me. I also am concerned about the ethical treatment of animals. How can I ensure that the animals I eat have been treated humanely according to tza'ar ba'alei chayim? Is kosher vegetarian the only way to go? Your thoughts, please! (Please note: I'm not interested in opinions about whether kosher slaughter is humane; I've done my own reading on the matter.)
* For example, the Kashrut of my youth did not allow the mixing of milk and meat but did allow for the consumption of Chinese takeout on paper plates as long as it was eaten on the porch: go figure.
