Food update – Week 1 as a Pescetarian 

Hello everyone!

So here’s a post I never thought I would be writing. As you might have seen on my snapchat this past week I literally out of nowhere have tried eating following the pescetarian diet.

What the hell is a pescetarian?

It’s basically a vegetarian who eats fish. I’m not going to go into some big scientific notion around diets and why I’m cutting out meat (cause I don’t really know any) But lately I’ve noticed my diet changing for the better and I thought, If I set myself a bit of a challenge I might be onto a good thing here.

Why not become a vegetarian?

This for me is a little too unrealistic right now. I’m not cutting out meat necessarily for animal rights reasons (although yes to animal rights), I’m just kind of seeing if I can do without it.

My main reason for trying this is I just want to know what I’m eating. I don’t like the idea of processed meats. We’ve all heard the horror stories, what’s been pumped into some meat and not knowing how these chemicals can harm our bodies. All I want is to be healthy.

Is it going to be hard to do?

When I think about the amount of meat I eat it’s really only at dinner time. Breakfast is fine and working in KC Peaches makes lunch really easy. There’s so many salads and hot dishes that are vegan let alone vegetarian. I’m pretty sure I’m eating like a Vegan 70% of the time already!

Also, for the last year I’ve stopped drinking milk. I started to get really full and bloated after drinking a regular latte so now I drink soy milk, almond milk or coconut milk in my coffee and cereal/porridge. I’m still eating dairy right now just not straight up milk.
