Lately, you’ve been thinking about dipping your toes into plant-based eating. But going full-on vegetarian feels a little extreme (you love sushi) and vegan is out of the question (because, cheese). Well, here’s an idea: Why not try the pescatarian diet? Here’s what you need to know.
What is it? The pescatarian diet is basically a vegetarian diet that includes fish and other seafood. This means that all red meat and poultry is off the menu, but foods like salmon, tuna, shrimp and oysters are allowed.
But what about cheese? Most pescatarians (also spelled pescetarians) eat dairy and eggs, but there are some who don’t. Technically, the former are called lacto-ovo-pescatarians.
So, I can eat cheese? Yes, you can eat as much Cheddar as you like.
