I know that vegetarians don't eat meat, but what do they really eat? Surely it doesn't mean strictly vegetables?

I have several friends who are vegetarians and they have a very colorful and varied diet. They both eat an assortment of breads, grains, vegetables, pasta and many other items. I don't know why they call themselves vegetarians, I think non-meat eaters would be a better description.
