Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

Fresh Seafood Combo Meals are a Great Money Saver

By Shannon Linnen

When you don't live right on the coast, it can be difficult to find good fresh seafood. Most of what you'll find at your local grocery store is frozen and over priced, and what they have that's 'fresh' is old and so expensive, you couldn't buy it anyway. Do you with that you were able to make a fresh cod fillet, or fry up some delicious fresh bay scallops, but feel like you're never going to find them? Well think again. Looking online for a fresh seafood combo meal will help you to find just what you're looking for, at a great low price.

When you love fresh fish, you're likely to love all kinds of it. That's why a fresh seafood combo meal is such a great deal. You'll be able to either get two, three, four or five or your favorite types of seafood, or try something totally new. It's a great way to share your love of cooking seafood with friends and family, without breaking your budget. You'll also know that all of the seafood that you're getting is guaranteed fresh, which means you'll also know that it will have the best flavor and texture available.

Seafood in a restaurant is usually way too expensive, and often over cooked. Who wants to pay 40 dollars for a tuna steak that's over done? No one does, which is why it makes sense to make it for yourself. But finding a quality tuna steak far away from the coasts can be a daunting task. That's where a seafood combo meal comes in. You're able to get a fresh, flavorful tuna steak, and pair it with another luxury fish, like lobster tails, making it the perfect dinner party combo.

You can also try many new things when you're cooking at home. Have you ever thought about cooking fish on the grill? It may seem like a crazy idea, but with a tuna steak, you can throw it right on their, searing it just right so that it's still raw on the inside, but has the great grill flavor on the outside. For other types of fish, try wrapping them in a tin foil steaming packet with some fresh vegetables for a great low calorie meal.

If you love to cook for your kids, and want them to try lots of new types of fish, a fresh seafood combo meal is a great way to introduce them. You can try flaking off some pieces of each type of fish to make exciting fish sticks, much better than that processed stuff. Either lightly bread and pan fry, or bake for more of a healthy option. If your kids are more adventurous, try baked fish chunk skewers.

Fresh seafood combo meals are a great way to introduce your family to new types of fish. It's also a great way to add some great protein to your diet without breaking the bank!
