    I've been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for about 10 years, although I didn't stop eating fish until I was 11. This feels like an alcoholics anonymous style meeting "Hi, I'm Jen and I'm a vegetarian" (applause) x

    I'd like to become a member I was veggie for 8 years but was severly anemic, I need to eat meat as supplements were not as effective and I do understand that eating meat is the 'natural' way to get your iron and I'm doing ok now. But as an honory member I'll join, I'm there in spirit and I think you do a good job!

    I'm a veggie, but I might eat a fish that died of "natural causes".

    Kidding.

    ok here are the classifications:

    Lacto-ovo veggie: the classic run of the mill type veggie which is what the food leabels cater for - you do not eat meat or fish, but do eat eggs and dairy.

    Lacto - veggie: you do not eat meat,fish or eggs but do have dairy

    Vegan: no animal products - no meat, fish, eggs or dairy

    Semi - Veg: trickier this is a psuedoclassifcation - um you only eat white meat/fish

    I was a vegetarian for almost an entire year when i was 12, but i decided to turn back to my meat-eating ways. I still only eat fish and chicken though but that's more of a taste issue.

    PS. Let me be an honourary member! I love broccoli!

    PROTEIN RICH FOODS –
    ALTERNATIVES TO MEAT
    2-3 portions daily. This group
    would be traditionally looked
    at as the meat section.
    Vegetarians get a plentiful
    supply of protein and iron
    from pulses, nuts, seeds,
    eggs, tofu, soya, mycoprotein
    and wheat protein

    Does anyone get annoyed by the fact that most sweets are not suitable for vegetarians?

    I wonder if anyone actually knows that one E number - which is for Cochineal - red colouring - is made from crushed beetles!?!

    Ahh because of Gelatine I can't eat cola bottles although I have done mistakenly in the past. I remember buying a bag full and then remembering on the way home - my neighbour was pleased with getting a free bagful though.

    YES! i find the cochineal thing gross. and there something inherently wrong with meat products in sweets.

    Same thing with cola-bottles- not halal.

    I'm a piscaterian - one of those odd fish-eating types. Basically, my morals are more emotive than systematic, and i just don't like fish as much as other animals. Wouldn't be bothered about the crushing beatles thing either. Guess I'm just heartless.

    I'm a vegetarian (have been for five years) and I don't eat meat or fish, which apparently makes me a lacto-ovo vegetarian.
