"Waffle House is my religion. There's nothing else like it. In what other chain restaurant do you get greeted – every time – with a big, hearty 'Good Morning'? Yeah, you sometimes get to see your cook's prison tatts. Yeah, you leave the place smelling like waffle oil. But you LOVE it." - Jenn

5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

If you live in Houston, Texas, chances are you've eaten some of Chef Bryan Caswell's food.

A native Houstonian, Caswell grew up in the same Gulf Coast region where he now owns REEF, Little Big's and Stella Stola.

Caswell was named one of Food & Wine Magazine's "Best New Chefs" in 2009, and was most recently nominated for a James Beard Award for "Best Chef: Southwest" in 2010.

It's obvious Caswell knows a thing or two about what makes a good chef - and where you find the foundation for a talented cook, according to him, may come as a surprise.

Clarified: Vegans, pescetarians, raw foodists and other dietary tribes

In cooking, the process of clarification entails straining out extraneous muck from liquids so that they might be pure, clear and ideal for consumption. With this series on the world's dietary tribes, we're attempting to do the same. Previously, we defined dietary restrictions of some of the world's major religions. Up next – gluten free, low-sugar and other medically necessary diets.

Today, we're delving into the do-not-eat lists of all stripes of vegetarians as well as fruitarians, raw foodists and other groups who observe self-imposed culinary restrictions. Reasons for adherence vary wildly from person to person - some for religious reasons, others out of environmental and ethical concerns and others for reasons of health and well being.

In future installments, we'll speak with the people who have chosen these paths, but today, here are the raw (dairy-free, meat-free...) facts.

Omnivore
While the term technically implies a creature who eats everything, in human terms, it means an equal-opportunity eater who consumes both animal and plant-based foods in varying ratios.
