Vegetarian food refers to meals that excludes all forms of animal meat, including eggs. The choice of becoming a vegetarian is a very personal one and the decision to do so range from religious influence to health reasons. In Asia, many Buddhists and Hindus are vegetarians following their religious beliefs.
Vegetarianism is a growing trend around the world as our society becomes more health, spiritually and environmentally conscious. Movements as such Meat Free Mondays advocated by stars such as ex-Beatle Paul McCartney continue to add to the growing numbers.
