  1. It really is amazing how far vegetarian products have come (and how delicious they now are) though I personally don’t think I’d ever be able to give up meat. It’s just too tasty for me.

    There’s one particular term in your article that I noticed was used incorrectly, and that would be “vegan.” A vegan does not eat fish nor any other animal. They don’t eat products that come from animals (dairy, eggs, etc) either. This lifestyle is also not secluded to just dietary habits. You’ll never see a vegan wearing a leather jacket.

    Meanwhile, the proper term for a vegetarian who eats seafood is a pescetarian (a really good friend of mine is one of those). I’m not sure why certain people believe it’s wrong to kill animals yet fish are fair game. For my friend, she’s allergic to nuts which is one less source of protein for her. Seafood fills that gap. When she chose to become vegetarian, she abstained from fish as well until it was clear that her diet needed it.

  2. Hmm, I never knew there was any difference between a vegan and a vegetarian, nor did I know there were any further denominations of vegetarian. I guess you learn something new every day…

    I can see how your friend is an exception, if it’s something that she absolutely has to do then you can’t argue with that. If every pescetarian had that reason then it would make sense, but I know some just decide that fish are acceptable to eat. I can’t understand that.

    And trust me, the day we’ll be ordering mycoprotein Big Macs from Macdonald’s is near. It’s just heading that way.
