Seafish have launched their new Think Seagan campaign, a programme that aims to combine the plant-based diet of veganism with the healthy protein of seafood. Tying in to their “2 a Week” campaign that aims to increase British fish consumption back to the recommended 2 portions a week, Think Seagan presents an exciting new way of combining the health benefits of a plant-based diet and of seafood.
The UK is now home to more vegan restaurants than any other country, with veganism undergoing significant growth in the last few years. On the other hand, seafood consumption continues to decline. Seafish see the Seagan campaign as a great opportunity to tie seafood in with the growing plant-based market and boost the role of fish in the diet once again.
Here is what Seafish have to say about their new campaign:
What is a Seagan diet?
A Seagan diet isn’t a brand new concept. The term showed up way back in 2007. However, you can bet that there were people who ate a plant-based diet, that also included seafood even before this.
How is Seaganism different from pescatarian?
Pescatarians consume a vegetarian diet including dairy and eggs, with the addition of fish. Whilst the Seagan diet does not contain any diary or eggs, so is perfect for a dairy free diet too.
Why do we love the Seagan diet?
In a nutshell… there are lots of health benefits to a plant–based diet and by adding seafood, the diet becomes even more nutritious. The Seagan diet ensures you get enough protein which can sometimes be difficult to achieve with a purely, plant–based diet alone.
A Seagan diet is perfect for those interested in wellbeing as it provides several brain boosting nutrients and is perfect for fitness fans building up muscle. It can also work wonders for whittling your waist, fighting fatigue and having healthy looking skin and hair.
