Hello, my name is Sharon. Though I do not eat meat or poultry I do eat fish and seafood. My favorite seafood includes shrimp and lobster. I like haddock, tuna and cod. Each day I take a cod liver oil supplement to increase Omega 3's which help decrease inflammation. I generally eat fish or seafood once a week.

I believe the term for me is lacto ovo or vegetarian according to the dictionary. I do not eat ant meat, not even fish. But I do drink milk and eat cheese.

I am basically Pescaterian too. I've been doing mostly vegetarian meals for about 6 months, plus shrimp, salmon, tuna and tilapia (1-2x/week).

There are also some tools from the Monterey Bay Aquarium that help people make smarter seafood choices based on geography. I use the iPhone app every time I go to the store. They have printable pocket guides too:

Pescatarians! Great word :) That's what I was a few years ago when I considered myself vegetarian. Now, basically I just don't eat red meat. But I'm thinking about making another step...

I am a pescatarian also. I originally got the idea from "fish on Fridays" menus, that was a Catholic edict back in the day. Not that I am religious, but I liked that way of eating and I really don't care for meat and fowl, I have been eating this way since 1972. I also avoid eggs, but occasionally it's included in recipes I like. However, I do used vegan egg substitutes when I cook at home, but normally I don't even prepare recipes that call for eggs in the first place.

I don't usually prepare fish at home, but I do eat fish in restaurants and salad bars like baked salmon and fish and chips. I also like a Greek salad with anchovies. I like smoked fish on occasion, for example: smoked trout, salmon and white fish.

So happy that there are pescatarians here. Noone ever knows what I mean when I say that word. I typically explain by saying "I don't eat anything with feet".

Just to confirm Salmon should be wild.

Tilapia is the fifth most important fish in fish farming. According to research published in July 2008, farm raised Tilapia may be worse for the heart than eating bacon or a hamburger. The research suggests the nutritional value of farm raised Tilapia may be compromised by the amount of corn included in the feed. (Wikipedia)

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

I've been a pescetarian for about 10 years now - salmon and tilapia are my go-to fish. I don't do any shellfish or catfish - do some research on those, and you won't either! Anyway, I do lots of whole grains (quinoa, couscous, brown rice, etc.) along with legumes, LOTS of veggies, and meatless soy products from Morningstar Farms and Boca - WAY healthier than regular meat. Anyway, you are not alone! And I'm so glad to meet someone who knows the word pescetarian! ;-)

I think I am going to go this way as a stepping stone as you say to becoming full vegetarian. Vegan is way to strict for me also.

I think if anyone actuallly knew what went on in slaughter houses etc, nobody would eat meat, chicken or hogs. I have known people who have visited these places and they come back shocked. As long as all you see is a nice clean package in cellophane wrap in the grocery store, it is easy to distance yourself from what it actually is. I don't like hunting because I can't imagine taking a gun and killing a deer but if you really think about it, a deer has a far better life than a steer in a beef yard. Not to mention chickens and hogs raised so close together they can't move.... Ok, I am having Bocaburgers for dinner

I used to eat a lot of things till I became informed. The more informed I became the less I would eat. So now if someone tried to tell me something about fish...I am like STOP RIGHT THERE! Cus then I wouldn't eat that either.

Eat their poop? Ewww.

Some of those horrible videos have been on the news. Taken under cover. It is awful. I have heard that farm raised salmon is not good eithe because they are "caged" sort of and swim in each other's poop. I have not researched that. So wild caught, in a sustainable way is better. However, fishermen were killing sea lions so they wouldn't eat the salmon. I think they put a stop to that. It is hard to know what to do. I am not a vegetarian but in the last three months on SP, I am leaning more and more in that direction.

It is basically what this team is all about anyway. But when the team was created, it was done so with out the "official" term for how we eat.

See More About:

* pescatarian definition
* vegetarian defitnitions
* how to go vegetarian
* vegetarian nutrition

Definition: Occasionally used to describe those who abstain from eating all meat and animal flesh with the exception of fish. Although the word is not commonly used and a pescatarian is not technically a vegetarian, more and more people are adopting this kind of diet, usually for health reasons or as a stepping stone to a fully vegetarian diet. Pescetarians often believe that moderate consumption of fish or fish oils, which are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, is necessary for optimum health, although vegetarian alternatives, such as flax seed oil, are available.

So, I was looking at PETA's website the other day and I watched a video about how cruelly animals are treated. I almost cried. It was horrible. Please don't watch it if you are very sensitive about seeing strong images. Anway, I am pretty sure that I never want to eat chicken, pork, or beef again, but I just can't give up fish. I LOVE sushi, it's one of my great pleasures in life and salmon is a staple in my diet. Are there any pescatarians out there who have some good advice about the most sustainable, healthiest fish to eat? Thanks!!! emoticon
