As the month of October comes to an end, it’s not too late to celebrate National Vegetarian Month! Did you know that being a vegetarian can be more than simply eliminating meat from your diet? While most vegetarians eat fruit, vegetables, grains, dried beans and peas, nuts and seeds. There are many levels of vegetarianism.
- Lacto-ovo-vegetarian: includes dairy products (milk, yogurt, cheese, etc) and eggs
- Lacto-vegetarian: includes dairy products, but no eggs
- Ovo-vegetarian: includes eggs, but not dairy products
- Pesci-vegetarian: includes fish
- Semi-vegetarian: includes both fish and poultry
- Vegan: includes only food from plant sources. No eggs, dairy products or honey
