|katebrownell||Yes, some vegetarians do eat eggs and it's okay for them. According to the vegetarian definition, eggs are vegetarian because it does not contain any animal flesh. Lacto-ovo vegetarians eat eggs and dairy products but not any animal flesh. I even heard of vegetarian people eating fish :/|

|FredericLavender||I was a veggie for 33 years and now a vegan for 9 months. Eggs was life for me especially as I am a bodybuilder. I miss eating eggs but replicate scrambled eggs on toast with tofu. So just using tofu, scramble it with onions, peppers, salt and black pepper. Sometimes I add some chilli flakes|

This doesn't appear to be true. In 1944, the first newsletter of the Vegan Society (at that time, known as the "Non-Dairy Vegetarian" society) specifically states that its first focus was animal cruelty: https://ivu.org/history/europe20b/vegan_news_1.pdf

For example, I used to know someone who called himself vegan who hated animals. There are also people who go "vegan" for purely health reasons who still freely buy leather shoes.

It depends on who you ask. Vegans will say no, Krishna consciousness will say no (they only do cow's milk/cheese because they're influenced by the Hindu tradition and believe eggs are a potential living being), but many who identify as "vegetarian" eat eggs.
I would strongly recommend pasture-raised eggs only, cage free doesn't mean anything good.

protein dense food
Professional athletes that get their protein from plants:
If you need extra protean, eat legums.

Anyways, as far as eggs being vegetarian, they are. The focus of the vegetarian society is more a health focused group (that seems to ignore just how bad for you eggs are...) and not focused on ethics. This is why I find it odd that forums such as this one are for both vegetarians and vegans.
Fun fact: The vegan society was originally health focused as well, until Gandhi gave a speech to them about the ethics of not consuming animals and their "products".

I would personally LOVE to find a way to ditch Eggs but I haven't found anything like EGG WHITE so far as a protein dense food. It seem like every protein dense vegan food is also highly fat. It's not a bad thing per se but my fitness and workout background totaly sold me on the value of proteins.
I buy my egg localy and I feel okay about it. However, I know they are still hens periods.

|rrconfetti||I honestly cannot imagine being vegetarian and not eating eggs and dairy. If I could give those up, I'd easily go vegan! :P|

Just a fun fact for the day!

Eggs are eaten by vegetarians and the Vegetarian Society (UK) has never had a problem with this.
Perhaps Danil Shipak could let us know if he wants to hear the vegan (or a non-traditional vegetarian) perspective on eggs? In that case the thread would need moving from the Transitioning to Vegetarian sub-forum to a more appropriate area.

It's ovo-vegetarian. The accepted definition of vegetarian is one who does eat anything killed, so egg and dairy are accepted as they are taken from animals without them being directly killed.
Yes, most vegans will argue about their offspring being sent to slaughter, and the males chicks killed from offspring of laying hens (as only hens are needed for egg producers), however, eggs are dairy are for all purposes vegetarian
Eggs sold are not fertilized.
