What Is a Vegetarian?!
【素食101 - 素食有幾多類？】
I got to answer these questions quite often:
"You’re a vegan? So do you eat fish?"
"Some vegetarian eat egg milk, why don't you eat them?"
”My relative is a vegetarian too, but he will pick vegetables and beans from the meat dishes. Would you eat that too?”
After explaining these for so many times, I realise there is really a need to introduce different types of vegetarians to friends who might not be familiar with the “Veggie Concept”. I hope this article would help everyone to have a better knowledge about their “Vegetarian” friends afterwards! (Especially when picking restaurants and what to eat!)
Different kind of Vegetarian
Because of the different reasons, vegetarian food is not single, but also has different definitions, mainly divided into the following categories:
They do not eat foods from animals and related products, such as meat and internal organs, but eats eggs and dairy products. It is also within the scope of observing most of the vegetarians in Hong Kong.
They do not eat all animal foods and any dairy products except eggs.
They do not eat animal foods and eggs, but eats dairy products, including cheese and cheese.
They do not eat meat, and does not eat all related products with animal ingredients, including milk, eggs, bird's nest, honey and so on.
does not eat meat directly, but can pick vegetables, beans and other non-meat in the leek.
Others, for example, Pescetarianism refers to people who quit eating red meat and poultry meat but still eat seafood (mainly fish); and Fruitarians, who only eat the fruits of plants.
I hope this simplified explanation would help! Share with your friends who are not a vegetarian!
