So what is a vegetarian?
The Vegetarian Society defines a vegetarian as: “Someone who lives on a diet of grains, pulses, nuts, seeds, vegetables and fruits with, or without, the use of dairy products and eggs. A vegetarian does not eat any meat, poultry, game, fish, shellfish or by-products of slaughter.”
Once you’ve made the decision to become a vegetarian, you’ll find that you have to make a lot of choices – do quite a bit of research.And what sort of a vegetarian are you planning to be? There are different types.
~ Lacto-ovo-vegetarians eat both dairy products and eggs; this is the most common type of vegetarian diet.
~ Lacto-vegetarians eat dairy products but avoid eggs.
~ Vegans do not eat dairy products, eggs, or any other products which are derived from animals including honey.
You’ll have plenty of questions too. For example, how will you get enough iron and protein? Should you take supplements to ensure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals you need? And what about children? At what age can they become vegetarians?
One of the main concerns you may have is to know whether a product is vegetarian. You’ll find some good answers to this on the Vegetarian Society’s website here.
