The Reality of a Pescatarian
I entered the world as a vegetarian and leaving as a pescatarian. I’m sure of it.
Being the second born within my 2 parents they decided to become vegetarians together and raise a family full of em. I couldn’t eat meat nor did I ever. We did eat eggs though and nothing further. Sooner or later we dropped the eggs and stopped drinking cow milk, and only used cheese and veggie products. We still ate ice cream of course <3
Sometimes I felt left out though as I watched all my friends devour a piece of meat with their fingers full of grease. I would come home sometimes and do the same thing when I ate the meat substitutes because I thought it was a cool thing to eat that way. I laugh at it now cause it was in no way cool, looking back they looked like savages haha.
It was also so annoying being pressured to eat or taste meat. I just didn’t want to, I was told it was bad and to just dodge it. It was just so extra to keep telling people I can’t eat something and my friends leaving me out of meals because I can’t eat this or that.
Although that was all annoying things I’m still very grateful that I was born and raised in a family that believed eating meat was bad. I don’t eat meat nor will I ever.
Later on, my parents became more lenient on what we ate and we soon enough went back to eggs and became pescitarians. Although I’m a pescetarian, I hate tuna, or any fish that’s not salmon, I love shrimp, and I still eat eggs. I’m basically a sushi fan, so that’s usually when I eat seafood.
I also tried being vegan but it just didn’t work with my body, I ended up having lots of headaches. I also missed pizza, cake, and sushi. I would love to try becoming a vegan again but as of right now I’m just a pescatarian.
People ask me why I would never eat meat and my response always is, I wouldn’t want a graveyard as my tummy.
Would you ever try out veganism, vegetarianism, or pescetarianism? Why or why not?
Thank you for reading! <3
