No food with a face?

I used to be amused by Phoebe, from "Friends" fame. Her declaration of vegetarianism was simplistic, but clear: "No food with a face". Did this mean that cheese and eggs were o.k.?

I stopped at a few farm stands on Sunday and liberated an eggplant. By Phoebe's standards, I'm not sure if I can eat it or not:

Cows and chickens have faces. Eggs and cheese came directly from their bodies but are not part of their bodies i.e. we are not eating flesh so I presume it is fine. I opt for Vegan cheese which is far more delicious than regular cow cheese. Eggs unfortunately there is no way around them so I just eat them for the protein.
