Mix up your meal plan with some of these delicious, healthy pescetarian meal prep ideas. Many meal plans use a lot of chicken and beef, which can leave out many pescatarians. But don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of delicious pescatarian and vegetarian recipes to fill that void.
We like to keep meal prepping to a minimum because we know it can be tough to cook 3 to 4 days of food at once. So a lot of these recipes are easy and straightforward.
Is a Vegetarian Diet the Same as a Pescatarian Diet?
Pescatarian diets can sometimes be confused with vegetarian diets, which are a diet that contains no meat, fish, and seafood. A pescatarian diet, on the other hand, allows fish and seafood but doesn’t allow meat.
How Long Can I Meal Prep My Food?
This can depend on the specific recipe; most will last for 3 to 5 days as long as it’s been cooled quickly and stored in a compact airtight container in the refrigerator.
Most cooked fish will be safe for up to 3 days of storage. If you’re meal prepping for the whole week, we suggest using freezer-friendly fish recipes and taking them out of the freezer the day before you plan on eating them.
Seafood is one of the most hazardous foods for storage, and it can depend on the type of seafood you’re using. A good general guideline is not to store cooked seafood for more than 2 days.
