What does it mean to be a Vegetarian?
There are many reasons why some people choose vegetarian diet:
A vegetarian diet can be healthier than other diets.
Some people think it's wrong to use animals for food.
Some religions forbid eating meat.
A vegetarian diet can cost less than a diet that includes meat.
Eating less meat can be better for the environment, because most meat is commercially farmed.
Some people don't like the taste of meat.
