Frequently Asked Questions

The Sunbasket Pescatarian meal plan includes ingredients for a variety of vegetarian and seafood dishes every week, including organic fresh produce, killer house-made sauces, custom spice blends that pack a wallop, and the best in sustainable seafood––basically, everything you need to cook up an amazing array of globally-inspired recipes without having to leave your kitchen.
Because of the puns, of course! But seriously folks, a pescatarian diet takes advantage of all the health benefits of a vegetarian diet, which is full of nutrient- and fiber-rich plant-based foods, and adds a healthy dose of seafood. This is good because seafood is often rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Plus, you know, it's delicious.
Just a few letters! We kid, we kid. A pescatarian, unlike a strict vegetarian, will add healthy servings of fish and seafood into their diet, while a capital-V vegetarian avoids all meat, poultry, and seafood (but not necessarily eggs or dairy).
Have you ever seen those incredible seafood markets with the fish flying all over the place and the tunas as big as your body and the sparkling scallops and mouth-watering clams and and’s pretty much like that, in a box! We fill our meal-kits with wild-caught or sustainably raised seafood like salmon, shrimp, cod, and sole, with options to upgrade to halibut or scallops, plus organic, non-GMO tofu and more...and the best part: you don’t have to get up before dawn to brave those crazy fish market crowds. We got you.
It depends! The technical definition of a pescatarian does explicitly include animal products such as cheese and eggs, and the Sunbasket Pescatarian meal plan does include these products.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® is the leading authority on sustainable seafood. Based on extensive environmental research, the program publishes lists to better inform consumers on how to select the most environmentally sound seafood choices. Sunbasket only sources seafood that is listed as Best Choice or Good Alternative by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program.

Health Benefits of a Pescatarian Diet

There’s (nutritional) gold in them-there krills! Low in saturated fat and high in good minerals and essential omega-3 fatty acids, seafood is a nutrient-rich protein. Followers of a pescatarian diet reap the benefits of a plant-filled vegetarian diet with the added benefit of the nutrient powerhouses of the sea. It’s like a 2-for-1 (seafood) special. Studies have shown that those who consume vegetarian and pescatarian diets have a lowered incidence of chronic disease and live longer, healthier lives.

Building an Ideal Pescatarian Meal

Think of your plate like a pie chart (but hold the pie...nice try, you!): An ideal pescatarian meal starts with 50% of your plate composed of greens or vegetables, 25% seafood or plant protein, and the remaining 25% made up of whole grains or starchy vegetables for complex carbs. (Be sure to use good, plant-based fats for cooking, like olive, avocado, or nut oils.) Now that’s a pie that’s tasty and good for you!

Saving the Whales Isn’t Just for Hippies: The Importance of Sustainable Seafood

Sourcing and cooking with sustainable seafood isn’t some passing trend or activist cry: It’s essential for the health of our oceans and our planet. Overfishing and irresponsible fishery practices have led to significant collapses of major seafood populations globally. The decline of any marine species may cause other populations to skyrocket or plummet, depending on their place in the food chain. As a result, our ocean ecosystems can fail, driving down availability of viable seafood options. It’s hip to be fair!

How to Find Quality Seafood

We’ll be the first to admit it: Finding quality, sustainable seafood can be difficult. But arming yourself with knowledge as well as the right tools can make it a heck of a lot easier. We recommend following the seafood recommendations published by The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program. Responsibly sourced seafood will always taste better, be healthier, and benefit the environment. Nothing fishy about that!
