  • True vegetarians do not eat fish. They eat dairy and eggs but nothing that ever "had a face." Vegans do not eat anything that came from a living thing like no dairy, eggs or meat. But people put labels on their eatings habits all the time. I do not eat any type of meat. I am a true vegetarian. I also do not eat eggs but I do eat dairy products.

  • Vegans do not eat anything that affect the system negatively. Actually, a true vegan doesn't wear leather or any kind of unnatural make up or clothes. All of it is pure and natural. They have special vegan make-up, shampoo, soap etc..They don't eat anything that comes from an animal. Period. No dairy or meat.

    A vegetarian will still eat dairy most of the time but won't eat meat, and I've seen a lot of them wear leather.

  • Vegans don't eat anything that is cooked.They only eat organic vegies and fruits.My baby brother is a vegan.His girlfriend is a vegitarian and she eats only organic fruits,vegies and nuts.They both do drink soy milk.They make their own juices.His girlfriend does eat cooked foods.
