So, what is Vegetarianism? It’s really a lifestyle and dietary approach avoiding the consumption of meat, poultry, fish and other animal products of your choosing. Vegetarians usually includes eggs, dairy products and honey into their diets.

Breakfast: Two scrambled eggs and spinach topped w/ crumbled feta cheese and one serving of oatmeal with mixed berries and a drizzle of maple
Morning Tea: A delicious oat milk latte
Lunch: Mexican style, with rice, beans, guacamole, bean tortilla chips and salsa for a ‘Nacho Bowl’
