Pescetarians + Tuna Sandwich Restaurant Recipe with Vegan version

A Pescetarian is an omnivore who excludes poultry, beef, and pork from their diet but includes fish (and usually other forms of seafood like shrimp, oysters, scallops, etc.). Because these people do choose to include meat in their diet they are not considered vegetarian as vegetarians do not consume meat.

I think Pescetarianism is a great choice if you want to make the change from a complete omnivore diet to  vegetarian one. I was a pescetarian too for over a year and I am now a vegetarian, but I must tell you that the change is not that easy. If you want to become a vegetarian and you don’t want it to be a radical change, then you can give up eating poultry, beef and pork and eat only fish and seafood. Of course, I recommend you to keep this going just for a while, to make a smooth transition to a full veg diet.


Foods that are hard to prepare don’t only consume time, but also impose exhaustion on anyone. With this, sandwiches are normally the best alternative for lunch during busy or lazy days. Most often, many consider eating at fast food chains such as Domino’s and Wendy’s but these seem to be costly and unhealthy.

As a food-lover, you are sure to enjoy making the most of lunchtime deals at your favorite diners, but as you probably know, eating out all the time isn’t very healthy. If you are trying to eat more healthily then opt for a salad when you visit your local Pizza Express or go for the Sprouting Broccoli salad at 100 Hoxton London if you’re visiting a pal in the UK. But if you want to save some money then it’s worth making your own salad or sandwich. There are recipes that are quick (and affordable) to prepare and cook. A tuna sandwich specifically, is an easy recipe in which does not require heavy cooking. It’s so easy to prepare that you only need to mix the ingredients and serve. This recipe should only take 5 minutes, giving you leeway to enjoy the rest of your free time.
