Raw Pescatarian Diet


Many studies have confirmed the importance of having a diet rich in raw, uncooked fruits and vegetables. Yet there are many variations of a raw food diet including "Raw Vegan", "Raw Vegetarian", "High Raw" and even "Raw Pescatarian".

A Raw Pescatarian Diet is basically a Raw Vegetarian Diet or a Raw Vegan Diet plus Omega 3 fish oil capsules (wild caught and cold-pressed). A raw pescatarian may or may not include additional fish. A "High Raw Pescatarian Diet" is a High Raw Diet that includes cooked fish.

People include fish or fish oil in their diet because fish is extremely rich in healthy Omega 3 oils as well as B12 and D vitamins - all of which are more difficult to find in plant sources. Yet it is possible to obtain Omega 3 from plant sources (such as algae and flaxseed oil) just as it is possible to obtain vitamin D from sunlight, eggs, milk and nutritional supplements. B12 is a different story as it is generally not found in plant sources - yet there are many B12 supplement options for vegans.
