Veganism, Vegetarianism and Ethics (10% Happier Self Care Journey) 4/9/20



•  Let NO ONE judge you for your choice to or not to be vegan, vegetarian,  pescatarian (fish only) etc. It's a personal choice derived for various  reasons (health, ethics, environmentalism and religion/spiritual)



• Main difference between veganism and vegetarianism:

According  to the Vegetarian Society, a vegetarian is someone who does not eat any  meat, poultry, game, fish, shellfish or by-products of animal  slaughter.



Vegetarian diets contain various levels  of fruits, vegetables, grains, pulses, nuts and seeds. The inclusion of  dairy and eggs depends on the type of diet you follow.



The most common types of vegetarians include:



Lacto-ovo vegetarians: Vegetarians who avoid all animal flesh, but do consume dairy and egg products.

Lacto vegetarians: Vegetarians who avoid animal flesh and eggs, but do consume dairy products.

Ovo vegetarians: Vegetarians who avoid all animal products except eggs.

Vegans: Vegetarians who avoid all animal and animal-derived products.



Those  who do not eat meat or poultry but do consume fish are considered  pescatarians, whereas part-time vegetarians are often referred to as  flexitarians.



Although sometimes considered  vegetarians, pescatarians and flexitarians do eat animal flesh.  Therefore, they do not technically fall under the definition of  vegetarianism.



Bottom Line:

Vegetarian  diets exclude meat, poultry, game, fish and shellfish. Certain types of  vegetarians also exclude eggs, dairy or other animal by-products.



•  An insufficient intake of nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids,  calcium, and vitamins D and B12 can negatively impact various aspects of  health, including mental and physical health



• A  vegan diet may be better than a vegetarian diet for controlling weight  and reducing the risk of certain diseases. However, if not well planned,  a vegan diet is also more likely to cause nutrient deficiencies.



•  No matter what type of diet you adhere to be mindful and respectful of  others diets and non-judgemental of the choices you or others make for  themselves while still respectfully voicing your opinion or sharing your  perspectives, education or information.
