Sorry for the tangent @MilkyMama, welcome!
I used to call myself pescatarian too, but everyone (or those who don't know basic Latin, perhaps) was like "WHAAAT?!" so I changed the term to something I read somewhere... Exactly same thing anyway 😊
Yeah, I'm not really hierarchical or anything about it, I just believe everybody knows what their own body needs and everyone is really so different! But I've been this way pretty much my whole life - I'll never give up seafood or eggs, but I don't eat much dairy.

I know someone who describes herself as vegaquarium. Makes me laugh! Interesting to see there's quite a few of us pescatarians around.
