What is a vegetarian diet?

Asked: What is a vegetarian diet?

The Vegetarian Society defines a vegetarian as: "Someone who lives on a diet of grains, pulses, nuts, seeds, vegetables and fruits with, or without, the use of dairy products and eggs. A vegetarian does not eat any meat, poultry, game, fish, shellfish or by-products of slaughter."

There are different types of vegetarian:

* Lacto-ovo-vegetarians eat both dairy products and eggs; this is the most common type of vegetarian diet.

* Lacto-vegetarians eat dairy products but avoid eggs.

* Vegans do not eat dairy products, eggs, or any other products which are derived from animals.

Eggs: Many lacto-ovo vegetarians will only eat free-range eggs. This is because of welfare objections to the intensive farming of hens. Through its Vegetarian Society Approved trade mark, the Vegetarian Society only endorses products containing free-range eggs.

Most soups used the same starter ingredients, onion, carrot and celery. Then you can add whatever else you want. And just about any vegetable can be used.

You can add pasta, barley, brown rice and/or lentils.

How much weight will I gain from eating Nutella?

Asked: How much weight will I gain from eating Nutella?

Usually I just eat it on toast or have a single tablespoon. I don't think I have gained any weight. I am about to be 14 years old and currently I am 5'5 and I weigh something around 109 or 112 pounds (the 109 was on an empty stomach and 112 was after eating a big dinner and it was measured on the same scale). As the summer comes up I am outside already a lot more and have been walking at least on the weekends (I am planning on doing it more often) and for 15-20 minutes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Once again I do not eat Nutella as often as some do (srsly I read that some guy ate like 2 jars in one day. wtf) but today I was bored and their wasn't much for snacks. No fruit or grab-able veggies or anything (and I drank a smoothie thing that had like 5 servings of fruit in it anyways). Also I have a good metabolism I used to eat tons of junk and never gain weight (I don't do that now and I am a vegetarian so I don't even know if my metabolism is as good but it's still good I never go on diets or anything). Will I gain weight from this?

This Woman: Was/Is Les/Bi?

Asked: This Woman: Was/Is Les/Bi?

This woman: was/is lesbian or bi?
As a first disclaimer, I'm not trying to generalize, just going on tendencies I've noticed in many lesbians/bi's. I have absolutely nothing against them; I'm bi myself.

Ok, on to the question. I've known this woman for over a year, and during that time we've gotten pretty close (not like what you're probably thinking; we're quite different in age and she's married besides). Anyway, I've wanted to ask her about it for a long time but I wanted to see if others thought there's a possibility that she's les/bi. So here are some factors, For is reasons for one to think she may be, against is reasons to think she isn't:

For:
*Wears bandanas frequently
*Wears boots all the time
*Vegetarian
*Muscular
*Deep voice
* Very masculine walk
*vague and mysterious past (very little info, even to those close to her)
*Uses rainbows/rainbow colors in her paintings
*Watches "masculine" shows/movies like Lonesome Dove, Django Unchained, etc.
* Competed until recently in events generally done by men (certain rodeo events)

Against:
*Married to man (but only for 3 years)
*Very occasionally wears skirts/dresses (literally no more than 3 times a year)

I don't know, For has more reasons and they are stronger reasons as well. It seems to me that she is/was les/bi, but what do you think?

-Again, no negative generalizations intended. Just pointing out some common characteristics she shares with some les/bi's.I understand many of these things will come across like that, but there was no other way for me to say it.-

Oh, and if you have any tips on how to ask her about it, please offer them. I really don't want our relationship to become awkward if she say's she isn't/wasn't. I'n thinking about coming out to her, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for any help you can offer!
