On a regular day, what are some things you other vegetarians/vegans eat?
Note:I try to eat as vegan as possible so the transition won't be as tough.
I'm vegetarian so I usually have;
A slice of watermelon
Some organic peanut butter on a piece of wheat bread
I drink lemonade:)
I snack on Cuties
and for dinner I grill a vegan Boca Burger.
What about you guys?

Vegetus makes more sense as its not a vegatable diet, its a diet made up of many foodstuffs.

"We don't know, and probably never will know, exactly how the word 'vegetarian' came about. There were many individuals scattered around the country following the 'vegetable diet', so the word could have simply arisen in several places as an obvious shortening of the term, or perhaps a journalist or other writer first used it in a long lost publication. However, it seems too much of a coincidence that, to the best of our knowledge, the word first appeared bewteen 1838-43 just when Ham/Alcott House was at its most enthusiastic revolutionary peak. It remains by far the most likely source.

There has been a long-standing claim that the word was derived from the latin 'vegetus' - apparently meaning 'whole, fresh, lively', but as far back as 1906 a writer in the Manchester-based Vegetarian Society's own magazine knew this was myth, and also suggested Alcott House as the probable real origin. In the early 1850s the magazine representing the Society had quite clearly defined it as: 'Vegetarian - one who lives on the products of the vegetable kingdom'."

Well they put out loads of books that claim vegetus was the origin and even on this web page they make that claim http://www.vegsoc.org/news/2000/canapes.html 4th paragraph. Seems like manchesters vegetarian society need to take it up with themselves and decide whats what before i take it up with them.

not to sound all dad on you, but because you're eating a restricted diet you're going to have to eat more varied or you're going to end up being very sick.

Thanks a lot, and it does seem, after being vegetarian, I have been tired and easliy attacked by viruses.I take Calcium pills and multi vitamins and they help sometimes.
Thanks for the advice,though, I will increase my vegetable intake.

I was searching to see if anyone already posted a book thread and this looked interesting, so I dug it up. :P

I use www.thedailyplate.com to keep track of my diet and exercise since I'm trying to lose weight. A typical menu consists of:

12 glasses of water
Vega protein shake made with Almond Breeze and blueberries or strawberries
apple or other seasonal fruit
either stirfry with seitan, bean and rice bowl, black bean burger or curry bowl (curried rice, garbanzo beans, and peas)
baby carrots with hummus
spinach salad with white beans

Exercise: lap swimming Tuesday & Thursday, walk 4 miles and yoga Monday, Wednesday, Friday, belly dance on Sundays.

i eat as much fruit as i can through the day (and yes, i mean also cucumbers, paprikas or eggplant), drink a lot of water. if it's weekend i cook some "one-pot-show" based on seitan or tofu mainly. if it's not i do some salads with pasta or just a bread with some "soy pate"... and when i have time i like to search some interesting recipe on the internet and try to cook that food (it usually needs some substitutions here)..

One pot/slow cooker recipes are the best.

Freakin' veg baked beans on sourdough toast is sooo awesome!

Hubby says that it sounds like hangover food, but I remind him that it's just British. ;)
