    Pescetarian For My Own Benefit

    About 3 months ago, I watched Vegucated and decided to never eat meat again. However, it never really "clicked" with me to give up seafood. As soon as I watched Vegucated, I knew that I would never eat meat or poultry, and I always knew on the inside that I would give these up...

    Was A Vegetarian...

    For a long time (only a few years) I was a lacto-ovo vegetarian. I was very proud of myself. I started being vegetarian in 2006. In that same year, I cut out seafood.  Funny thing is cutting out meat was easy! Seafood wasn't!! After 3 years, I had to go back. My body wanted...

    @#$#ing Sushi!

    If you look at my experiences, you'll notice that there are a bunch that say I'm a vegetarian.  Truthfully, I kind of consider myself more of a vegetarian who can't step away from the sushi as opposed to a pescetarian.  I keep going back and forth.  I want to be a...

    Fishy Goodness.

    I have given up eating pretty much all animals except for fish, which is a large part of my diet along with pasta. Though I do hate having to defend my dinner from my cat.

    I Am A Pescatarian

    I am a pescatarian for ethical reasons. While I understand the circle of life concept and that no life is permanent, I also want to avoid harming any sentient being if it is at all within my control. Besides the killing of the animals, livestock often have a very low quality of...

    Steak!!!

    I love steak. A nice thick cut of meat marbled and grilled to perfection. Montreal seasoning or maybe just a little Worcestershire sauce and mashed potatoes. I grew up on and around farms so I guess I am not a bleeding hearted animal lover. When you grow up seeing animals used...

    I Don't Eat Goldfish.

    I am actually no longer Pescetarian, but I plan to be someday again! I was a Pescetarian a lot of my life. I currently have a "prescribed" diet to follow (no, not overweight, just digestive problems I was born with). I also have a family now that it is hard to cook individual...
