Category Archives: The Persnickety Pescatarian

Being a pescatarian is the new being the Kool Kid on the block. It is catching on (no pun intended) like you were fishing for compliments in your favorite LBD! Give this a try if you have been a vegetarian who loves fish and shell fish!

Try Salmon/Japanese

Oh, what to order at a Japanese restaurant??  Recently we ate at a fabulous Japanese restaurant called OKINAWA and I found tons of good things to have. Tempura vegetables were yummy. Hibachi veggies with fried brown rice-yes! And the best of all, teriaki salmon. Remember, we are pescatarians so salmon is a great source of Omega 3.

Pescatarian Life!

Yes, Pescatarian Life is easier than veggie or vegan. The addition is fish and shellfish. Just look at some of the fabulous stuff WE can eat!!

                                                          FRUITS

Apples, bananas, blue berries, cantaloupe, all varieties of oranges, pears, strawberries, raspberries, grapes, all melons, peaches, grapefruit, persimmons, kiwi, lemons, raisins, pineapple, and many others I have forgotten!

                                                          Vegetables

Artichoke, broccoli, Kale, eggplant, mushrooms, onions, cauliflower, carrots, celery, spinach, avocados, tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes ,lima beans, cucumber, zucchini, mushrooms, and many others have forgotten

                                                               Dairy

Milk-all types: soy, almond, Fairlife, Lactose free, etc., Cheeses and the variety is delicious and virtually endless, any and all types of ice creams and sorbets, cottage cheese with any and all of the additives (I like pineapple), my mainstay, yogurt and I use any and all types including soy yogurt, cream cheese, particularly on a bagel, and many others I have forgotten!

                                                              Fish and Shellfish

I could go on and on here, but I will mention my favorites: salmon prepared any and all ways including salad, patties, croquettes, and so on. Same for tuna. All fish is good. All shellfish is good too, but calamari is the highest in cholesterol remember.

So, in conclusion, remember with so much stuff out there to eat, who wants a candy bar??  Another mainstay for me is oatmeal by the way. I also eat quite a lot of Frosted Min-iWheats. If you read the label, it has most of your daily requirements when you add a half of a banana, a few blueberries, and some Fairlife milk. PS-Don’t forget to add a bit of protein powder to your smoothie!!

Vegetarians Versus Pescatarians

Vegetarians could and should eat a wide variety of food choices for good health and balanced vitamin and mineral intake. I have been a vegetarian for some 32 years and I have recently made a big conversion. Having spent a lot of time looking into and writing about (PINK Magazine) healthy lifestyle choices I have concluded that for me personally the selection of adding fish and shellfish to my diet can be not only healthy, but healthier!
