There are different "kinds" of vegetarians. A vegan eats NO animal products or by-products. ie: nothing with chicken broth, beef broth, no gelatin (Jello), no marshmallows. There are alot of things with by products in it. I am lacto-
ovo vegetarian which means I do eat milk and eggs (and cheese). I've heard some people say they are vegetarian but they eat fish. ( ? ) Fresh fruit and veggies would be a good way to go. There are alot of sandwiches that are good that don't have any meat. Just google vegetarian recipies. Soups with no chicken or beef stock in them. Mmmm I love a good corn chowder ! Fettucine alfredo, eggplant parmigiana, veggie pizza, beans, cheese
enchiladas, bean tostados. (check the refried beans and be sure they have no lard or other animal fat for the vegans). That's just a few ideas. Good luck !
