I love the line about being obsessed with getting protein. First, just about everything has some protein. But more importantly, eat quinoa. Its yummy and pretty versatile.

For a vegetarian is OK to eat eggs and dairy the only thing off limits is Meat. If you don't eat any animal products then you are a vegan then it becomes more of a challenge when eating out

It takes 3 weeks for you to notice your body changing
8 weeks for your friends to notice and 12 weeks for the rest of the world to notice
Give it 12 weeks don’t quit

Hey, Joy. Here's something about easily getting enough protein in the vegan diet.

Here's a good article for you. Be sure and scroll to the bottom to see all the types. There are seven points to the article.

Here's another great one about different types. It has more variety.

Hi Marsha
I think you would call yourself a "flexatarian" because you really do not come under any one heading of vegetarian. You can put "types of vegetarians" in the search box at the top of the page and it will lead to a bunch of sites to help you answer your question. Take care and good luck.

Is there a website that tells the different ways of eating vegetarian? I eat veggies, fruits, some fish and chicken, and eggs. What would this be called? I am so confused.

Thanks so much.

Jealous of the RV, but I agree that stopping at the grocery store should help keep you on track.

The last time I was traveling cross country, I really had to make the effort to stop at grocery stores to stock up on veggies and other healthy foods, as opposed to going to the fast food restaurants (which were a childhood treat when my family would go on trips). Does your RV have a fridge? That might make it a little easier (again, if you can push past the cravings. There's just something about being on the road for a long distance that makes me want a McDonalds cheeseburger - which I haven't had in forever, but, again, road trips bring out my inner child!)

Thanks both of you. I love the suggestions. Birder, maybe when I get back home. I'll write you. I'm playing Snowbird right now. I have an RV. It's not easy staying on the diet traveling but I'll get there.

Hi Joy!

That's a great question. A vegetarian diet is centered around no meat, but you can eat dairy and egg based foods without worry! I, personally, avoid cheese and yogurt product (one of my 2014 healthy reaolutions is to not eat anything that is advertised for - which leaves out leading yogurt brands like Yoplait) but I'm lucky enough to live with chickens, so I eat eggs. I would also recommend switching from cow's milk to almond milk - it's just healthier for you in general! :) a vegan diet is also a lifestyle -- in addition to not eating meat they don't consume or use any animal products. This means no eggs, and no leather products. If you're interested in learning more about veganism check out Alicia Silverstone's Kind Diet! It's a book and website great read. Also, most Indian dishes are veg friendly (and if they are made with meat you can usually swap it out with mushrooms or tofu). I personally enjoy Medeteranian, Greek (swapping lamb for mushrooms or felafel), Thai, and Vietnamese food too, very veg friendly too. Hope that helps! Direct message me if you want to chat more or want any recipe suggestions. :D

Many vegetarians eat dairy products and eggs; strict vegetarians, also known as vegans, eat no animal products. The list you're looking at is probably for vegetarians. There was no link in your post.

plant based diet ---- I just read about good protein snacks. I am wondering why eggs and yogurt was on the list?
I'm fairly new at this.
