What is a vegan? What is a vegetarian? How are they similar or different?

What about a flexitarian?

There are so many types of Veggies out there and you will find most veggies will define for themselves what their being vegan or vegetarian means to them, but these are the most common definitions:


The strictest of all 'veggie' diets.

This is one who eats no animals or animal products.

Many take this diet into a lifestyle and philosophy and also do not wear animal products such as fur or leather and are animal advocates.


One who does not eat animals. No meat, fish, flesh. They may eat eggs and/or dairy.

Ovo-Lacto Vegetarian:

One who does not eat animals but will consume egg and dairy products.

Pesco-Vegetarian/ Pescatarian:

One who includes fish in their otherwise animal free diet.


One who eats meat on occasion but tries to maintain a vegetarian diet and lifestyle.
