Not really. A vegetarian usually has come ideology or reasoning behind the eating. I do have some precepts that I try to cling to, but they are somewhat unrelated. For example I try not to eat food with ingredients. Things like vegetables, beans, eggs don't have a label with a list of ingredients. Things like dairy, pastries, prepared foods have labels and I steer clear of them. Sometimes I will buy a chicken, or fish, or even pork chops but I say away from processed meats like bacon, ham, or sausages. And that's just a tendency and I break with that tendency at will. Sometimes I will pick up a breakfast burrito at the market. But well over 90% of the time I eat at home and eat primary foods consisting mainly of vegetables, beans, and grains. Another factor is money. Simple foods are pretty cheap.You are a vegetarian? I, again, find your cooking and choice of ingredients very interesting. Hope you enjoy your dinner.
