Who is a Vegetarian?

A vegetarian is someone who does not eat any meat, poultry, game, fish, shellfish, or by-products of animal slaughter.

Let’s Look At Some Types of Vegetarians

  • Vegetarian (aka lacto-ovo vegetarians)

These are Vegetarians will not eat meat, poultry, fish, or seafood but will eat dairy products, honey, and eggs.

  • Flexitarian

A flexitarian is more of a flexible vegetarian eating pattern, where their intake is mostly vegetarian, but they will eat chicken, steak, or any other animal product when they are craving it. This is the least restrictive vegetarian eating pattern and could also be called mostly plant-based.

  • Pescatarian

A pescatarian is a vegetarian who also eats fish, along with eggs and dairy. It is a great option for those who want to get some extra protein in their diet. 

  • Lacto-vegetarian

A lacto-vegetarian abstains from eggs, meat, poultry, seafood, and fish but eats dairy. A lacto-vegetarian diet is synonymous with vegetarianism as a whole. 

  • Ovo-vegetarian

Ovo-vegetarians include eggs and egg products in their diet, but they don’t eat dairy or other animal proteins such as seafood, fish, poultry, and meat.  Many lactose-intolerant vegetarians may choose to eat this way.

  • Vegan

A vegan diet means eliminating all animal products, including those of animal origin. This means no eggs, dairy, or even honey.
