Special Diets

Vegetarianism is the practice of not consuming meat or fish, with or without the use of dairy products or eggs. This includes products derived from animals, such as lard, tallow, gelatin, rennet and cochineal. Some vegetarians also choose to refrain from wearing clothing derived from animals, such as leather and fur. Veganism excludes all animal products from its diet and attire, whether or not this involves the actual death of an animal (dairy, eggs, honey, down feathers and silk). Still stricter is fruitarianism, which excludes all food but the fallen botanic fruits of plants. [more information]

Veganism is a philosophy and lifestyle which "seeks to exclude (as far as is possible and practical) all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment." In practice, this translates largely to the abstention from consumption or use of all animal products, including eggs and dairy products, as well as articles made of bone, leather, feathers, mother of pearl or other materials of animal origin. Vegans are also likely to avoid products that have been tested on animals. People who avoid eating all animal products, but who otherwise use animal byproducts (for example, by wearing leather shoes) are called "dietary vegans". [more information]

Gluten Free Diet
A gluten-free diet is a diet completely free of ingredients derived from gluten-containing cereals: wheat (including Kamut and spelt), barley, rye, oats, and triticale. The gluten-free diet must be strictly followed by sufferers of coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis. Some medical practitioners also believe the diet may be helpful for persons with multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune disorders, as well as autism spectrum disorders[1], ADHD, and some behaviourial problems, but this has not yet been conclusively proven through medical studies.

Raw Food Diet
A raw food diet consists of uncooked and unprocessed, and often organic foods. [more information]
