Vegetarian

A diet that includes vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and grains and is free from all animal products including dairy and eggs. Also used to describe a person who eats such a diet.

Common confusion: Often mistakenly used to describe those who do not eat flesh but do consume other animal products such as diary and eggs. Such a diet would be more accurately described by the term ovo-lacto vegetarian.
