A Pescatarian Diet and their Nutrients
Pescatarians are people who eat seafood but not meat. This means that their diet consists mainly of fish, shellfish, and other seafood items. While there are many healthy seafood options available, pescatarians should be sure to include a variety of seafood in their diet to get the most benefit. Pescatarians should also be aware of the potential health risks associated with consuming too much seafood, such as mercury contamination. However, when consumed in moderation, seafood can be a healthy and delicious part of a pescatarian diet.
Pescatarians enjoy many of the same nutrients as vegetarians, including fiber, vitamins C and E, folic acid, beta-carotene, and magnesium.
