Hello let’s talk about the differences between vegetarian and vegan and flexitarian fruitarian and pescetarian. I’ve noticed that there’s a lot of confusion about these terms. I was in a restaurant the other day and I asked wait if there was something vegetarian on the menu and he said to me is beef. Okay no it isn’t so to find out more vegetarians do not eat dead animals. If you eat fish you are not a vegetarian tuna is not a vegetable veg vegetables will eat products from animals such as cheese and eggs. But if you are vegetarian be careful about cheese because some cheese contains a product which is called rennet which is made from the stomach of a calf. So cheeses such as parmesan and rock four are not vegetarian. Sorry for the bad news.
Paul McCartney explained why he is a vegetarian saying that now he can walk past the field of animals with a clear conscience. If you do eat fish but not meat then you can call yourself a pescetarian. A vegan is someone who doesn’t eat any animal products no meat no fish no cheese no eggs honey well maybe yes maybe no it depends on who you ask. Some vegans will not made but will not use anything made of leather some famous vegans include Natalie Portman, Miley Cyrus, Al Gore and Morrissey.
Okay now we’re getting into extreme territory a raw vegan is a vegan who won’t eat foods that have been heated to a temperature of more than 49 degrees centigrade. Thank you too which PD for that information they say that heating the food kills. Its nutrients and produces dangerous chemicals so a flexitarian. If someone who is a vegetarian most of the time but will occasionally eat some meat to supplement the diet. For example oh man yeah I’m a flexitarian. I’m a vegetarian except on Tuesdays when I eat sausages for example. And finally we have the fruitarian the most extreme diet of all prepare. Ian’s wish to avoid killing anything including plants so they’ll eat fruits that fall but those which don’t kill the plant so they won’t eat it. For example you can’t a carrot because that kills the carrots but you can’t eat an axle because the apple tree carries on living. Seems a big stream to me because a carrot doesn’t suffer it doesn’t have a central nervous system but that’s what they believe.
However the diet is said to be a bit dangerous because it lacks vitamins. If taking a fruitarian to the hospital there now I think but the diet lacks vitamins. There are some famous fruitarians that you might know there is AG and E. He was a fruitarian for five years and also Steve Jobs. He was a vegetarian for some time and some people say that the fruitarian diet killed him because it led to his pancreatic cancer. Other people say that this is nonsense so there you are hope that cleared up any confusion. So vegetarians will say that’s great we term it a meal which is cruelty-free but of course I couldn’t comment. I’m just a music teacher. So I’ll leave you with a quote from Isaac Bashevis singer who said “I didn’t become a vegetarian for my health I did it for the health of the chickens”. Well, thank you for read this tiny article, i hope it usefull for us.
