10 Ways To Become A Successful Pescetarian

Posted Thu, 08/20/2009 - 11:35am by Liora Hess

Filed Under:

So you're convinced of the benefits of excluding all meat other than seafood from your diet but not quite sure where to begin? Here are some tips to help make your transition to pescetarianism a healthy and enjoyable one.

1. Have an adventurous spirit.

Contrary to popular belief, vegetarians and pescetarians have seemingly endless menu choices. Determine that you're going to be open to trying any food at least once. You're about to embark on a journey that will have you trying many new foods and recipes and discovering new things. Who knows where this path may lead? Go ahead and let yourself get excited!

2. Keep a journal.

What are your reasons for becoming a pescetarian? It's a good idea to start your journal by writing these out. Your list will be handy to refer to if you find your resolve waning. Also consider using your journal to record things you've tried, what you like and dislike, websites and cookbooks you've discovered, and more.

3. Ease into it.

While some have gone "cold turkey" on all meat but seafood, you may find it helpful to try to slowly reduce the meat you're eating. Perhaps eliminate red meat from your diet first. You could also designate a day of the week as vegetarian or seafood day, and then gradually increase the number of days you're eating no other meat.

4. Educate yourself.

Learn when various fruits and vegetables are in season so they will be at the height of their flavor as well as cost-effective. Read about nutrition for vegetarians and pescetarians to ensure you're consuming a balanced diet.

5. Try the meat substitutes.

There are now a myriad of great tasting faux meats available, from corn dogs and ground "beef" to "chicken" patties and barbecue "ribs." Soy is often a main ingredient in these foods and can be an excellent source of protein. If you're not expecting meat substitutes to taste exactly like real meat, you'll probably be more pleased with them. Faux meats are usually quite heavily processed, so not ideal for using as the basis of your diet, but they can help you transition to becoming a pescetarian. Some popular brands of meat substitutes are MorningStar, Boca, and Gardenburger.

6. Get some resources.

From educational sites to recipes databases, online resources for pescetarians abound. Vegetarian magazines include Vegetarian Times and Vegetarian Journal. An excellent line of cookbooks that include some seafood recipes are the Moosewood cookbooks. Experimenting with vegetarian meals that includes fish rather than a fish-based menu will also free you to try the many delicious vegetarian options available.

7. Grow some food.

Your recipes will taste better if they're made with fresh ingredients, and what could be fresher than a beautiful tomato just picked from your organic garden? Concerned about space? Nearly anyone can create a container garden on a porch or deck. Even without a porch or deck, you can grow some organic herbs on a windowsill. For more on container gardens, see ContainerGardeningTips.com and Vegetable Gardening in Containers.

8. Join a club.

Talking with other pescetarians and vegetarians will give you support. Search online for clubs, societies, and other organizations of like-minded individuals. Getting together with others face-to-face has its benefits, too. A popular site for local groups is Meetup.com. If you can't find a local group, consider starting your own. Undoubtedly others will want to join.

9. Visit local vegetarian- and pescetarian-friendly restaurants.

Search the Internet for local vegetarian or vegan restaurants, but also try pescetarian/vegetarian dishes at restaurants that also serve meat. Keeping a record of what places you've tried and the foods you've sampled at each will help make your journal a wonderful resource for you to refer to. HappyCow, Vegetarian-Restaurants.net, and and VegDining.com are all sites that you can use to search for vegetarian-friendly restaurants in your area.

10. Keep trying new things.

Any diet consisting of the same recipes is going to get boring. Make a commitment to yourself that you'll try a new recipe or a new food every now and then to keep things fresh. Flexibility is key when making any lifestyle change, and this is particularly true when changing your diet.

Concerned about the mercury content in fish? Stay tuned for more information on how to select the best fish for your health.
