Did you know that there are 3 main types of vegetarians:

Vegans eat only plant-based foods. They do not eat any meat or animal products, including dairy products or eggs.
Lacto-vegetarians eat dairy products along with plant-based foods. They do not eat eggs.
Lacto-ovo vegetarians eat eggs and dairy products, in addition to plant-based foods.
I didn't know that vegans was under the category of vegetarians. Or am I misunderstanding this? I thought it was vegetarians, and vegans, that's it.
