India must be one of the easiest places to be vegetarian in the world.
But how many of us are?.....

Thumbs up

i used to eat mutton, chicken, eggs and fish. the yolk of eggs adds to your cholesterol, the doctors said - so out went eggs. another doctor said red meat has fat soluble in blood, avoid it. so, out went mutton.

you should have a voting option that can cater to others like me.

i am certain there will be many more in my category.

Not sure about your definition of vegetarian, as vegetarians do eat eggs!

I have used the classic no eggs equals veggie.
Eggs are like meat I think.
For the record I'm vegetarian, but my girlfriend eats meat.

Eating bovine however is not allowed.

Yeah, but in Kerala I was given fish chatni by mistake. I lived in one village, and had a woman cooking for me, but one day she was busy, and her husband was taking care about my dinner. And he gave me whatever he had. Oh well, I didn't taste much of it, as it was very spicy, but I didn't realise that it was made of fish before he told me. In few years, I forgot the taste of fish.
So the statement applies to North India more, and again except Muslims.

It was my surprise, that when I was last time in States, on one bisness meeting there was a German girl, who called her vegetarian, but she eats fish. And then in one Maimi restraunt where there was nothing veg to eat they asked me, how come that I am vegetarian, but I don't eat tune-sandwich.

It all depends on where,when,etc...

I learned to became a non vegitarian. Fish, Egg,Chicken & Mutton are OK.

By and large I'm a vegitarian More comfortable with veg food. But becouse of different reasons we've learned to have food with all kinds of eaters.

I'm scared of beef, pork etc.

Don't judge of them only of what is writing in books. I know one in North India, who has been pure vegetarian for his whole life, but he lives in cremation place, that has amazingly strong spiritual energy!

I'm the fussiest eater you can think of, haven't eaten fruit or veg since about 1992 (when I was 8) - it's nothing physical, it's just a mental block that I haven't been able to break yet. My hope is that while in India, I'll have to eat them, I won't have choice, so, please god, I'll be able to stomach them, and hopefully grow to love them.

Very true - plus it's accepted (even respected) there.
Although it's better than it was 20 years ago, it's still virtually unamerican to be veg in the U.S.
I aspire to veganism, but I just haven't found a way to make a decent cup of chai without milk :-)

I must admit, without meat I'd probably starve. I hate the taste of most green vegtables.
I went vegetarian

I went veggie in India for quite a while, but in the end the offer of 'Joey's Jumbo' breakfast sandwich at Joey's Pub in Darjeeling got the better of me. Great bacon sandwich, but I still snigger at the name now!

I have read enough and seen enough video to know i want no part of the meat/pork industry. Plus it is not good for you. I am a semi-practicing Hindu now due to my wife and in-laws....

Fish and occasional chicken/eggs. Always searching for legit free-range products.....anyone have any links to honest free range farms?

If you ate meat free indian food everyday, you wouldn't even realize you were a vegetarian, its soooo good!

You're quite right Jay, veggie food in India is fantastic.
I think here at home I'd have to live on plates of Brussels sprouts and carrots or do my own cooking!
