"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
A friend of mine asked me,
"Can I claim that I am on a plant-based diet if I'm not vegan? Is that against the rules? Because I'm a vegetarian for now, but that means that I am primarily getting my nutrients from plants."
This question threw me off a little. I consider my diet to be plant-based, because I only eat plants, but the word "based" means foundation or main ingredient, so one could argue that it includes vegetarianism. I did a web search to see what others thought and the answer was unclear.
