What Ever Happened to Herbivores?

What happened to the plain and simple terms of dinosaurs? They were either herbivores (eating only plants), carnivores (eating only meat), or omnivores who had their feet in both worlds!
 
In recent years I have been exposed to so many terms related to what people eat or don’t eat (or can and can’t eat), that it makes my head spin! When we started homeschooling 6 years ago, I started hearing people talk about being vegan and I was totally lost! I had no idea what they were referring to, although I knew it was food related and it seemed similar to a vegetarian which I was familiar with. As the years have gone on, terms like vegan have become more and more prevalent in our lives. Whether for health, principle, or other reasons, we have come in contact with more and more who are vegetarians, or are vegan.
 
The following definitions are taken from Wikipedia:
 
vegetarian encompasses the practice of following plant-based diets (fruits, vegetables, etc.), with or without the inclusion of dairy products or eggs, and with the exclusion of meat (red meat, poultry, and seafood)
 
veganism is the practice of eliminating the use of animal products (a term used to describe material taken from the body of a non-human animal. Examples are fat, flesh, blood, milk, eggs)
