With fish or without fish?
How to justify the consumption of fish in a vegetarian diet? Perhaps ultimately, as a final goal, we must dispense with the fish in our diet, considering also that in current times there are severe pollution problems in the seas. Sadly, the sea has become a garbage dump that is really toxic. These toxins end up accumulating in the schools and that’s what we end up eating.
However, moderate consumption of fish is still advised. To answer this question is necessary to see it from different angles, to have a more complete answer.
To truly analyze a theory, it must first be understood that it is a theory, ´theo´ comes from God. So etymologically speaking a theory could be described as a vision of God. This means that a theory is neither correct nor incorrect, it is a point of view, and the more omniscient our point of observation is, the greater our perspective of reality. This way, we can see the subject of fish from different perspectives.
It is very difficult to make the jump from an eminently carnivorous diet to a vegetarian or vegan, because it may represent a step too steep to climb.
It may be more effective to make gradual changes in our diet first. In spite of the contamination of the seas, it is necessary to know that the fish is evolutionarily quite rudimentary when compared with the mammals. His cold blood places him in a position between vegetable and mammal.
It is important to remember that life arose first with unicellular organisms; then phytoplankton, zooplankton, fish, amphibians, reptiles, rodents, quadrupeds mammals, primates and apes erected like us, the human being, being the sea from which all life comes.
It is fish that provides the most amount of essential fats. The consumption of fish fats promotes arterial health, while the saturated fats of all terrestrial animals grease the organs and clog the arteries.
Fish is, in fact, a food that contains benefits for the diet, many more any other animal of regular consumption.
If you eat fish you need to know which is better in terms of quality and quantity. The main difference between blue fish and white fish is the fat content of the fish, being in the former more than 10% and in the latter, less than 5%. However, this is not the only distinction between the two, but blue fish also offers more protein than white fish.
Therefore, in examples such as bonito, mackerel, tuna, salmon, anchovies or anchovies, we not only find more good fats among which omega 3 stands out, but also, more quality proteins, as we showed earlier, blue fish generally exceed 20% of protein.
White fish, on the other hand, not only offer few fats in general, but most of them do not reach 19 grams of protein per 100 grams, so if you are looking for a nutritious alternative, rich in quality proteins and good fats for the body, blue fish is always better alternative to white or less fatty fish.
