Well, it's my third day since i decided to go vegetarian. Wıthin these last three days i said no to meat and chicken for about 4-5 times.
First day was good enough with potatoes, second day lunch: white bean stew(of course without meat) dinner: stuffed vine leaves at the dinner. And today lunch: eggs scrambled with tomatoes and green pepper(still can not say no to egg, and i wonder if it makes me a semi-vegetarian) and dinner: leek stew(no meat again).
Dudes, i'm asking it because i don't have any idea about it, there aren't any vegetarians / vegans around me, anyway: i still eat cheese and egg. And i guess i won't be able to avoid eating eggs especially because food producers / bakers are unaware of the term vegetarianism. And it will be quite hard to find convenieve foods which don't contain egg. And as for the cheese, i'm a big fan of cheese and yoghurt, i can't help it.
So does it make me semi or sub vegetarian?
it makes you an ovo-lacto vegetarian
(i believe latin for egg and milk)
the words in English happened for historical reasons,
due to the establishment of non-killing vegetarians,
before non-exploiting/non-enslaving vegetarians,
who came up with "vegan" as a name for themselves.
i have heard people who only abstain from beef,
call themselves "vegetarian",
so it's good to qualify what you don't eat
some eggs are fertile,
i.e. have a live embryo in them,
some vegetarians won't eat them
some vegetarians won't eat honey
as bees are exploited and killed in it's production
just a few of the finer distinctions ...
