Who's a pescetarian like me?

I eat a vegetarian based diet but I eat salmon for my omega-3’s and shrimp on my pizza.

I have a daughter who’s a pescetarian. She eats seafood and vegetables, but she won’t eat land animals. She doesn’t have problems finding plenty of things to eat. She loves the vegetarian equivalents of burgers and other meats, and she eats a ton of tofu.

I’m just a regular (lacto-ovo) vegetarian, but if you ever need any recipes, I’m your go-go gal : )

Yes. I’m almost exclusively vegetarian, but will eat fish once or twice a week—usually salmon, sometimes skipjack tuna, and mackerel. I’ll have haddock and chips once every few months.

I eat wild salmon once in a while and some albacore tuna occasionally. If I am out, I will succumb to broiled sea scallops also.

Vegan most of the time…I do get eggs from the nearby farm where I can chat with the chickens who are out pecking, and I will eat a little local cheese on pizza or pasta.

I am not but I am very particular about what non vegetarian food I do eat. I will only eat fish that is caught on a hand line, I don’t support mass fishing, too many non keepers die in the process of the netting. I eat only free range chicken and eggs, I must see them running loose in the fields. And the same goes with beef and pork, both must be grass fed and free range. I prefer home butchered but seems no longer possible. I think there is a food chain and humans are at the top so we eat what is below us as do most other creatures. I do not think we have the right to condemn sentient creatures to a life of hell on earth just for the privilege of gracing my table and enlarging my waistline. I think that is a good compromise for me. This is a pretty expensive way to eat so we only have fish or meat 3 or 4 times a week, the rest of the time it is beans or tofu for protein.

My wife ate like that for a number of years. I didn’t realize there was a name for it. I jokingly referred to her as a “selectatarian”.

Anywho, she’s back to eating beef and pork now as she was diagnosed with IBS and too many veggies kill her. Still no poultry.
