Types of Plant-Based Diets

TYPES OF PLANT-BASED DIETS

Vegetarianism is not easily defined because it can mean different things to different people. There are definitions to help understand the different types of vegetarian diets but even these are not completely accurate. For instance, I technically have to consider myself a pescetarian because I occasionally eat fish even though I usually stick to a vegan diet. It is important to not get hung up on defining yourself or feeling you have to fit into one of the following categories! I have listed them to show you that not all plant-based diets are the same and there is a version to fit everyone’s different values and lifestyles.Watch The Channel (2016) Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Types of Plant-based Diets:

  • Vegan = eat NO products derived from animals; this often includes honey
  • Lacto-vegetarian = eat dairy + plant foods but no meat, fish, poultry or eggs
  • Ovo-vegetarian = eat eggs + plant foods but no meat, fish, poultry or dairy foods
  • Lacto-ovo vegetarian = (most common type) eat eggs + dairy + plant foods but no meat, fish, or poultry
  • Pescetarian = eat fish + eggs + dairy + plant foods but no red meat or chicken

Many people begin their transition to vegetarianism as a pescetarian or lacto-ovo vegetarian. Some stop here while others slowly transition to full-blown vegan. Either way, I believe by switching to any of these plant-based diets you are making a positive difference! 🙂

    I’m moving into a Pescetarian diet as best I can using baby steps. 🙂 Definitely worth it though. Great post!
