Travelling the plant-based road

Definitions of diets

Any steps we can take to go towards being plant-based or vegan are good ones.

Plant-based or vegan

People who eat 100% plant-based or vegan foods avoid eating land animals (meat, dairy, eggs) and avoid eating water animals (fish, lobsters etc). Vegans also avoid cruelty to animals.


People who are vegetarian don’t eat meat or fish but do eat eggs and dairy.


This is a new term that means someone who is almost vegetarian.

Meat-reducers/meat avoiders

Over a billion people across the world now avoid meat to protect their health, animals, and our planet.
