A vegetarian is a person who chooses to eat a diet of grains, pulses, legumes, nuts, seed, vegetables, fruits, fungi, algae, yeast and/or some other non-animal based foods with, or without, dairy products, honey and/or eggs (Vegetarian Society). A person may choose a vegetarian diet because of concerns about health, animal rights, environmental responsibility, and/or religious reasons.
There are different classifications of vegetarianism:
- Lacto-ovo vegetarians: the most common, eat dairy products and eggs.
- Lacto-vegetarians: eat dairy products and avoid eggs.
- Ovo-vegetairan: eat eggs but not dairy products.
We offer a variety of vegetarian options at all of our locations on campus. The introduction of our VEGETARIAN specific label will allow for easier identification of vegetarian safe options.
