It's a meat in transition though, just like any other fetus. Just sayin'  :P :-D

Last time I checked, the eggs you get in the store are not fertilized and hence not a fetus. For that matter, it wouldn't be a fetus even if it was fertilized and fully formed in the shell. A fetus is nourished by it's mother while it develops and is born live.

Is there a such thing as a vegetarian cake? Just sayin'

Yeah, a pizza pie topped with Nutella, mascarpone, banana and nuts.

Not going to pretend to know the ingredients in nutella or mascarpone, but do they include eggs?  ;D

Seems mascarpone is a cheese so no eggs.

BUT, for many vegetarians, and most ALL veagans, they come from a living protein animal, thus not part of their diet. I would think the unfertilized sperm or ova/ovum or gametes/germ cells from animals would NOT be considered vegetarian and certainly not vegan, though some in the vegetarian group make exceptions

Just saying an egg from the grocery store is not a fetus - nothing more, nothing less.

There are many kinds of vegetarians (and vegans). See, for example:

I agree with that, just making a point on the VEE list, would not be considered a veggie  ;)

Either uneducated, or make the exceptions and many are off and on again. If I had a known vegan or vegetarian coming for a meal I would tell them. Like feeding a Jewish or Muslim person pork or shellfish in a dish, I would not hide that from them

Yup, and just two of the many reasons why vegetarian is a walk in the park compared to vegan.

Yeah that's about as inconsistent as you can get.  I'd imagine these folk to be in the minority - the veg/ans I know are quite consistent with what they do/don't eat and are well-informed about ingredient lists.

Having said that, I can admit a related personal fault here.  One ingredient I try to keep out of my diet is gelatine.  I know full well that gelatine is in a bunch of foods, and I generally succeed in avoiding them.  However gelatine creeps into all sorts of places, and recently I've discovered that the most popular sour creams in New Zealand, which never used to contain gelatine, now do.  Some sour creams, generally the boutique-y ones, are still gelatine free.    Anyway, this is my current challenge, to not fall into buying "store bought stuff" that contains gelatine.  Increasingly hard to do effectively, unless you demand a full ingredient list...

I'm often just requesting vegan dishes when I'm eating out these days, especially if it's a new place.  Not because I'm vegan, which I'm not, but because it's just a simpler way of knowing what's on my plate.

Aside from vegan (personally think there crazy, especially raw vegan)
That is my main reason for not taking it serious when i vegetarian confronts me. (they do) sorry dont take offense. It seems like alot of people that go vegetarian like to make it well known how much better it is then people who choose to follow instinct.

Ahhhhh......that's crowded place, been there a few times.Professing the benifits or not, pro or cons is all over the place with herbavore and carnivore thing, people eat and believe what they want, just can't go with the "other one" is wrong in their beliefs nor do I want some pushing on my beliefs. It's just about respecting the other persons habits, no fingers, but I would be as informed as possible to a persons dietary or other needs if they were a guest or if I was cooking their food profesionally upon request. Lotssss of slippery places.........
