Washington, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – One can be carnivorous, vegetarian, vegan or Pescatarian.

But the United States Depatment of Agriculture (USDA) has just released updated nutritional guidelies on what constitutes diets of Americans.

The new guidelines classify  people who eat beef or chicken as vegetarians.
