Vegetarian - A person who does not consume animal flesh or, in some cases, any animal byproducts. There are several types of vegetarians. Vegans do not eat any animal-derivative foods including butter, cheese, eggs and milk. Ovo-lacto vegetarians allow such animal-related foods, but do not eat meat. Some vegetarians will eat fish and/or poultry, but no red meat. The custom may be based on a variety of personal principles, including religion, ethics, health and economics.
