I have been an on again-off again pescetarian/vegetarian for the past five years, switching from no seafood to yes seafood. Currently I am in my ‘I will eat seafood again’ mindset. When people find out I don’t eat other meats many assume I am extremely health conscious and eat very well.
Well, to cut to the chase, I tend to gravitate toward A LOT of simple carbs, pasta, CHEESES, high calorie sandwiches (Pot Belly’s oil-dripping vegetarian, anyone?), dense salads with plenty of creamy dressings, burritos, veggie burgers, ice cream. And if I go out for sushi, I tend to get something deep fried… I’m not averse to any type of food, I just need food to be flavorful and filling.
Does anyone have any special vegetarian (or even pescetarian) meals they absolutely love, that’s low calorie yet filling? I feel like meals that fit that criteria are rare or too painstaking. Or does anyone have any special food tricks they’ve learned over the years from being vegetarian? I'm the heaviest I've ever been as a pesc/veg and need help!
