Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

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 which can be rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Plus, it's delicious.
A pescatarian, unlike a strict vegetarian, will add healthy servings of fish and seafood into their diet, while a true vegetarian avoids all meat, poultry, and seafood (but not necessarily eggs or dairy).

Health Benefits of a Pescatarian Diet

A pescatarian diet can encourage consumption of fish high in omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown that those who consume vegetarian and pescatarian diets have lower BMIs than meat eaters. Low in saturated fat (the bad kind) and high in 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.

Building an Ideal Pescatarian Meal

An ideal pescatarian meal starts with 50% of your plate composed of greens or vegetables, 25% seafood or plant protein, and the remaining 25% whole grains or starchy vegetables for complex carbs. Be sure to use good, plant-based fats for cooking, like olive, avocado, or nut oils.

The Importance of Sustainable Seafood

Sourcing and cooking with sustainable seafood is 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 others 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.

How to Find Quality Seafood

Finding quality, sustainable seafood can be difficult without the right tools. We recommend following the seafood recommendations published by The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program and buying wild-caught instead of farmed (except in cases where the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program recommends sustainable fish farms). Responsibly sourced seafood will always taste better, be healthier, and benefit the environment.
