    Poll [face_idea] by Idrelle_Miocovani



    [blockquote]Macrobiotic
    The macrobiotic diet, revered by some for its healthy and healing qualities, includes unprocessed vegan foods, such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and allows the occasional consumption of fish. Sugar and refined oils are avoided. Perhaps the most unique qualifier of the macrobiotic diet is its emphasis on the consumption of Asian vegetables, such as daikon, and sea vegetables, such as seaweed.

    Raw Vegan
    A raw vegan diet consists of unprocessed vegan foods that have not been heated above 115 degrees Fahrenheit (46 degrees Celsius). ?Raw foodists? believe that foods cooked above this temperature have lost a significant amount of their nutritional value and are harmful to the body.

    Vegan
    Vegans do not eat meat of any kind and also do not eat eggs, dairy products, or processed foods containing these or other animal-derived ingredients such as gelatin. Many vegans also refrain from eating foods that are made using animal products that may not contain animal products in the finished process, such as sugar and some wines. There is some debate as to whether certain foods, such as honey, fit into a vegan diet.

    Ovo-vegetarian
    Refers to people who do not eat meat of any kind or dairy products, but do eat eggs.

    Lacto-vegetarian
    Refers to people who do not eat meat of any kind or eggs, but do eat dairy products.

    Lacto-ovo vegetarian
    People who do not eat beef, pork, poultry, fish, shellfish or animal flesh of any kind, but do eat eggs and dairy products.

    Pescatarian
    People who abstain from eating all meat and animal flesh with the exception of fish.

    Semi-vegetarian
    People who eat a mostly vegetarian diet, but occasionally eat meat.

    Yes, she does. :p Any way to fix that, Nat? [face_thinking]

    I'm currently lacto-ovo vegetarian, but I'm slowly becoming more and more lacto-vegetarian as I really hate eggs and can't stomach most things that are made with them (scrambled eggs... omelet...). My father is vegan, and I've considered going that route, but at the moment I do eat most diary products and I drink a lot of milk.

    Crap, and this is what I get for not looking in here sooner! :oops: No, unfortunately. If the poll gains popularity I'll just redo it.

    It's probably not going to gain popularity because the majority of the people who come to C&G aren't vegetarian according to the other poll. :p Therefore, I don't think you need to worry, Nat. [face_peace]

    I enjoy meat far too much to become a vegetarian. Although I probably should because it would take so much weight off my fat gut

    I don't eat as many vegetables as I should. Shame on me.
