Introducing the New Pescatarian Meal Plan
Our team of expert nutritionists have come up with a new meal plan for anyone wishing to follow a pescatarian diet.
If you eat fish and vegetables, but not meat, this is a great meal plan option for you! Full of family friendly recipes with whole grains, nuts, legumes, fresh veggies and healthy fats, with seafood playing a key role as a main protein source, this meal plan would suit any pescatarian wanting a meal plan just for them!
What is a Pescatarian and what do they eat?
A pescatarian is someone who follows a vegetarian diet, i.e. doesn’t eat meat or chicken, but does eat fish and other types of seafood like prawns and shellfish. It consists of eating mainly plant-based food, like veggies, grains, nuts, legumes, with the extra protein coming from the fish and seafood. Many pescatarians also eat dairy and eggs.
Why do people follow a Pescatarian Diet?
There are many different reasons for someone wanting to follow this type of meal plan.
Most fish, particularly fatty fish is full of Omega 3 fatty acids which are great for heart health as well as brain function and mood. Studies have shown that people who eat fish have lower blood pressure, and a lower risk of abnormal heart rhythms.
Apart from the fish and seafood, this meal plan includes heaps of vegetables which can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. As well as being a lean protein, lots of different types of fish and seafood contain b12, zinc and selenium which can help boost memory, help metabolism and brain function.
Environmental and Ethical concerns
People have very different reasons for not wanting to eat meat, from concerns about the impact of raising livestock on the environment, to ethical reasons, to simply not liking the taste. Whatever your personal reasons, be it health, environment or ethics, it is good to know there are other meal plan and diet options available.
