Are you looking to add more variety to your diet? Adding more pescatarian meals is a great way to go.

Not only is seafood yummy, but it’s also pretty nutritious. Seafood is an excellent source of lean protein which keeps you full.

And seafood is often rich in heart-healthy omega-3s. So pile on the seafood.

As an added bonus, it takes less time to cook than proteins such as beef and chicken. This makes it perfect for meal prep.

So today, I’m sharing multiple pescatarian meal prep Ideas. They’ll not only free up your time, but they also taste delicious too.

And to prevent all that seafood yumminess from going bad, it’s essential to store your meals in high-quality food storage containers.

These glass containers are an excellent option because they are very durable and don’t leak toxic chemicals. On the other hand, if glass containers aren’t quite your thing, these BPA-free plastic containers are an excellent alternative.

Do you have a sweet tooth? Then give this Sweet Chili Salmon Meal Prep a try.

The salmon is flaky, tender. And the sweetness of the honey is complemented by the heat of the red chili flakes.

Meanwhile, the soy sauce adds umami flavors balanced by the garlicky butter sauce’s savory- don’t be surprised if you want seconds.

And the salmon is accompanied by a bed of veggies; corn, edamame, and carrots. So, you’re getting even more nutrition.

Want to prevent overcooking your salmon? Keep a good eye on it and only cook it until it reaches an internal temperature of 125 to 135 degrees Fahrenheit.

I recommend this meat thermometer here because it’s exact and easy to read.

I love sushi, as I’m sure many of you do too. But I’m not a fan of making them myself.

Rolling your sushi ingredients can be so messy. And it can be pretty time-consuming too.

With these California Sushi Roll Bowls, you get all the yumminess of sushi- without all the fuss.

That’s because the Bowls are just deconstructed versions of sushi. You’ve got creamy avocado, delicious crab meat, crispy nori, and crunchy cucumbers.

All topped with sesame seeds and creamy, spicy Sriracha mayonnaise. Yum!

To keep it light, you’ll be using cauliflower rice instead of rice. Not only is cauliflower rice low in calories, but it is also low in carbs.

It is also very nutritious. It is an excellent source of Vitamin C which promotes a healthy immune system.

And it contains folate, which is vital for making DNA. So, eat up that cauliflower rice!

To save time, you can use pre-packaged cauliflower rice, which you can get here. Or if you want it fresher, you can make it from scratch.

Making it from scratch doesn’t take long. Start by chopping up your cauliflower.

Then place all of your cauliflower pieces in a food processor. Process until you get rice-like grains. This food processor here is very versatile. You can use it to slice, shred, mix, chop and puree.

On top of it, they have magnesium which is vital for strong bones. They also contain antioxidants which have health benefits.

Zucchini noodles are also easy to make. To make them, start by cutting the ends off your zucchini.

Then place your zucchini in a spiralizer and spiralize. This spiralizer here works well for even hard veggies such as turnips.

Eating seafood is good and all. But if you’re on a budget, eating seafood is easier said than done.

Not only is it cheaper, but it’s also convenient too.

This tuna salad is not only good for your wallet, but it’s also good for your tastebuds too.

The red onions add sweetness, while the pickle relish adds tanginess. The Dijon mustard and pepper add some heat.

And the celeries add a nice crunch. Meanwhile, the lemon juice makes the tuna taste fresher- who knew tuna salad could taste so good?

Besides being tasty, this tuna salad is also low in carbs. And it’s rich in fat which boosts your ketosis.
