The 10 types of vegetarians

8 Dec

When you ask people what vegetarians eat, you will get a lot of different answers. Some will say they only eat plants, others that vegetarians drink milk and eat eggs and some might even say that all vegetarians eat chicken and fish!

In a way all of them are right, because vegetarians can be many things.  Me, personally, I am a lacto-vegetarian.  But I did not become one right away…  I went thru a myriad of these iterations before I felt I could actually call myself a vegetarian.

Depending on the type of vegetarian you are talking about, they might eat everything from only fruit to chicken and fish.

To clear up the confusion a bit, the Danish site have made a graphic that shows exactly what each of the 10 types of vegetarians and vegans eat:

Whether pescetarians and pollotarians are vegetarians is up for discussion. Personally I don’t think they are vegetarians, but I’m sure some people will disagree with me and call them vegetarians.

Semi-vegetarians are also not real vegetarians, but meat-eaters who are on the way to become vegetarians or vegetarians that eat meat at social events.

What’s your take?  Please share with us on the comments section…

    I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Have a look at my blog post (link below) for the rules if you’d like to accept. And thank you for the inspiration! =) I’ll have to show this post to my husband, he gets so confused about what vegetarianism means!

      OMG Morgan!!!!! Thanks so much for the nomination!!! It feel real nice to hear from people who appreciate what we do in our little corner of the world. It was super fun to read those 7 facts about you. My dad always wanted ME to work for an airline so he would get those travel benefits himself. Not such luck… Thanks again and I will return the gesture. And maybe, just maybe you can finish your travel benefits with a BANG by visiting me in Puerto Rico, huh? Much success!!! Madelyn.

        Haha! Your dad had the right idea! No problem for the nomination, you definitely deserve it! Can’t wait to read your 7 facts too! I would absolutely LOVE to come visit Puerto Rico! Especially since I’ve never tried Puerto Rican food – how terrible! Haha! Thanks for the invite! Maybe I’ll see you next year! =)
