Vegetarian Myth #5: Vegetarians eat chicken & seafood.

Welcome to Vegetarian Myth Fridays! Today's blogisode has one of the most common myths believed by omnivores & some new vegetarians as well: vegetarians eat chicken and fish. This is a very simple myth to debunk because (believe this or not), vegetarianism has a broader choice of lifestyles than what you may think. 
First thing's first, vegetarians do NOT eat chicken or fish/ seafood. They are still animals and can feel, regardless of what some people believe. The brain capacity of an animal is also no excuse to make them a food exception. Secondly, only pescatarians eat seafood, but they do NOT eat chicken.

I have a list on the different type of vegetarian lifestyles there are in case you're wondering what vegetarians can and can't eat. For example, vegetarians that drink dairy milk & eat eggs are lacto-ovo vegetarians. To see the complete list with information on each type, click HERE.

  1. Great post!! I have met people that try to tell me that they are vegetarians when they still eat fish, and I'm like "NO your a pescatarian NOT a vegetarian." and some still don't get it. lol!

    1. Tell me about it; I agree with you completely because I too have encountered people like that. hahah

  2. I get really annoyed being asked if I eat fish, after I've told people I'm vegetarian...thanks for posting this reminder to those who don't realise that fish are animals!

    1. I'm glad that you like it; I have felt your frustrations too. :)
