    Eggs are not vegetarian.

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for your post. I don’t eat meat, but do eat eggs. Perhaps I should call myself a non-meat eater rather than a true vegetarian.

    I do understand that many vegetarians don’t eat eggs and I’ve got some great recipes on the site that I make using tofu as an alternative to eggs. I hope you give some of them a try and let me know what you think.

    Kind regards
    Julie
