Pescetarian

Degrees of Vegetarianism

Pescetarian is another fairly new term. It refers to someone who eats seafood, but not any other kinds of meat. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the term joins the Italian word "pesce," which means fish, with our English "vegetarian."

People often choose pescetarianism as a kind of middle ground between eating a typical Western diet and a diet that excludes all meats. It is particularly appealling to those who find it challenging to get enough protein from a strictly vegetarian diet. Fish and shellfish is a good source of protein, healthy fats and essential minerals. Some macrobiotic diets may be considered pescetarian, because they are entirely plant-based, with the exception of some seafood.
