So You Want To Be A Vegetarian? Here’s a Guide to Get Started

Vegetarian food is rich in variety. A vegetarian is someone who lives on a diet consistent of fruits and vegetables, grains, pulses, nuts, seeds, mushrooms and yeast with, or without dairy products, honey or eggs. While it’s important to note that not all vegetarians are the same, a vegetarian lifestyle however does introduce you to a wide range of foods that are healthy, nutrient-rich, sustainable and cruelty-free. Vegetarians fall into several categories depending on what they choose to eat:

Lacto-ovo-vegetarians eat both dairy products and eggs.
Lacto-vegetarians eat dairy products but avoid eggs.
Vegans do not eat dairy products, eggs or any products which are derived from animals.

If you are under the impression that vegetarians eat fish, this is not the case. A ‘pescatarian’ is someone who follows a mainly vegetarian diet but chooses to eat fish. A pescatarian diet does not include meat or poultry.
