SAD stands for Standard American Diet. I couldn't figure this one out a
couple of years ago either!

A vegetarian doesn't eat any meat, fish, or poultry. But eats eggs and

A vegan doesn't eat any meat, fish, poultry, eggs or dairy. Some are
ethical vegans and won't use or buy leather or anything that's made by
abusing animals.

Then there's all different shades of vegetarians inbetween...laco-ovo
and a bunch of other ones! 

Welcome to the list! I hope you learn alot!
