Types of Vegetarians

If you are going to be a vegetarian, you need to choose which foods you will eat and not eat. Hopefully this list will help you decide!

Semi Vegetarian:
A semi vegetarian will eat no red meat, but will eat poultry and fish. Most semi vegetarians are vegetarians for health, because of all the meats, red meat is the most un-healthy.
Vegetarian:
Eats no meat, fish, or poultry.
Ovo-Lacto Vegetarian:
Ovo-Lactos will eat eggs and milk, but no meat, fish, or poultry. I think ovo-lactos make up a lot of the vegetarian population.
Lacto-Vegetarian:
Lacto Vegetarians are the same as ovo-lacto, but will not eat eggs.
Vegan:
Eats no animal products.
Strict Vegan:
Neither eats nor uses any animal products.

I am an ovo-lacto vegetarian. Most of my recipes on this blog will have milk and eggs, but if they are vegan friendly, I will let you know!
