Vegetarian is the new Vegan

I was surprised and delighted to click on the vegetarian diets link on the USDA's new "Choose My Plate" website, and see the basic standard for a vegetarian diet as one that does not include dairy and eggs. The website writers call people who eat everything except meat "lacto-ovo vegetarians," and consider those of us who eat only vegetables, grains, and nuts to be "vegetarians."

It makes me feel far less like a member of the "fridge fringe."
