Quiz: What Do You Know About Vegetarianism?

Updated on May 27, 2013

Take My Vegetarian Quiz

I've been a vegetarian for almost 20 years and in that period of time I have heard many misconceptions that people have about vegetarianism. I have found many people to be uncomfortable around vegetarians, not having a clue what to feed one. I have also heard many people express interest in becoming a vegetarian if only they know how to go about it.

Often people expect vegetarians to be satisfied with salads consisting of mainly iceburg lettuce topped with a sprinkling of vegetables. The truth is a healthy vegetarian diet consists of eating dozens of colorful and dark green leafy veggies, plus fruits, nuts, seeds, nut and seed butters, all kinds of beans and whole grains, tofu, and sometimes even eggs and dairy products...the only thing we don't eat is meat!

There are several different types of vegetarian diets, some much stricter than others. Take the following quiz and find out how much you know about these diets and whether or not you might be cut out to be a vegetarian.

A healthy vegetarian diet consists of a wide range of live foods.

      I can't get the quizzes and polls to work today on Squidoo so I'll be back again to take them. Really LOL'd at your photo for the 'Where do you get your protein'

      Great quiz ... I should have done better since I've been a vegetarian for more than 20 years myself. My friends are generally perplexed about the protein thing, despite the fact that I enjoy better health than most of them.

      Great quiz! I was tricked on the raw food question b/c I chose all of the above, but you are right, not all raw foodists are vegan or even vegetarian.
