Hey.. guess what? It is national vegetarian awareness month! I am aware that vegetarian people do exist, duh I am not quite that naive. I support people who follow a life supporting what they believe in, no matter if it is for personal, religious, or health reason.. I can face it.. some people do not eat meat! I am totally cool with it, less people coming after my elk steak grrrrr.. Just kidding! 😉
There are many delish meat free dishes! I eat meat free a couple days a week actually. There are many wonderful foods to be had that do not include mammal meat!
Here is a perfect example: https://yourlighterside.com/2012/01/recipe-low-carb-festive-pasta-salad/

Vegetarians eat chicken, fish, and eggs–I think you mean vegans, who don’t eat any animal products at all. I’m with you on the elk steaks!

A true vegetarian wouldn’t eat any meat, chicken or otherwise, although they might consume eggs, milk, cheese, etc… That’s what differentiates them from vegans.
Vegetarians don’t eat meat, which means they do not eat chicken, fish, pork, beef, etc.. They do eat eggs though.
I’m a vegetarian and I definitely don’t eat meat i.e. chicen, pork or fish. I also don’t eat many eggs but I don’t consider myself vegan.
Vegetarian made simple…we don’t eat / wear anything with a face. Dairy is ok, as are eggs (must be free range) but chicken / fish Etc are off the menu. I guess this misconception explains why so many recipes tagged here as vegetarian have chicken stock in the ingredients. Also watch out for E numbers and some products with vitamin d which can be derived from non veggie sources. Vegan is entirely different – nothing from any animal source.
