Hi everyone,

Im a recently turned Pescatarian(just recently gave up chicken), which from reading this website I hope ya'll wont condemn me right off of the bat. My diet is 90% organic fruits, vegetables, grains etc with about 2-3 servings a week of wild Salmon and other non farm-raised fish with monitored populations. I know many will consider me a hypocrite, but I believe eating Fish is healthier and more natural than eating farm raised food as I believe fishing to be "natural" compared to farming animals which is a human concept.

I use this site as reference when choosing, so if there are any other fish eaters here, its a good resource if you want to help ease the burden of over fishing: http://www.mbayaq.org/cr/SeafoodWatc..._regional.aspx

and another with a list of safe fish to eat and their mercury levels:

anyways I joined this forum because I am very open(even to giving up fish and going completely vegetarian or vegan, just right now I believe its not the healthiest way to go for my life style) and hope to discuss interesting topics and learn some good recipes from ya'll. And dont worry, i dont call myself anything, especially a Vegetarian(since im not) so hopefully ya'll will get your rep back at restaurants and it wont be such a ordeal when ordering food, :]

If you are sincere about considering going full vegetarian or vegan, then you are most welcome.


Please do keep in mind that this IS a vegetarian message board, and we would appreciate it if you would avoid making comments on this board about eating fish, unless you are discussing giving up eating it.

Welcome!
Glad to hear that you're interested in vegetarianism and veganism! I hope you find the resources and information you need in order to make the transition soon.


Welcome to you, too, ponypartner!
Good luck with your transition as well.
