Hmm question about this one. I wrote down, "Eu sou um vegetariano" which to me appears to be the correct translation, considering there is an 'a' in the sentence, and not just "I am vegetarian". Please explain

when we write about occupation/profession we don't usually translated 'a/an' (I am a doctor = sou médico)

Não necessariamente... eu posso dizer que eu sou UM médico/I can say with or without the article...

Only if you vegetarian for a short while like today. If it is a longterm thing/lifestyle use "Sou"

Philosophical point.... But shouldn't it be "estou vegetariano"?
