  • Alternatives to Fish?

    Hello everyone!

    I really don't like fish that much. Are there any alternatives to fish that I can eat, and get similar health benefits?

    Sure. Eat cows.

      For the o3? Here are some suggestions, though the links aren't paleo, so they include some things you might not choose:

      omega-3 fatty acids

      Foods highest in Total Omega-3 fatty acids

      B*tch-lite

      Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

          And here I was thinking, "Yay, more fish for me!"

            a cow is hardly the nutritional equivalent of a fish, lol.

            eat a variety of good quality ruminants and keep going til you find fish or shellfish that you like. it's like saying "i don't like fruit," when there are literally hundreds of varieties -- not just apples and bananas.
            As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

              Fish are nice because they come from a wild food chain (nibbling hundreds of species instead of 2-3). Without them I'd look into more foraged plants or semi-game meats (pheasant, rabbit, etc)

                Have you tried all the fish? How about fresh trout caught from a cool stream, sauteed in an iron skillet over a campfire with plenty of butter for breakfast? Or atlantic scallops on the Connecticut or Jersey shore seared in bacon fat with a nice chardonnay? Or striped bass just out of the surf grilled with a crab and Hollandaise garnish? Or oysters, briny and cold with a dry, mineral French chablis? Or a pile of steamed crabs on some backwater creek on a hot, humid August day with pitchers of really cold cheap beer?

                Lots of fish to try before you don't like fish.

                  There are no ideal alternatives to fish. Can you be more specific what it is about fish you dislike? Taste? Texture? Digestive? Someone probably can address the specific dislike.

                    Agree, also Lamb!

                      Neither beef nor lamb will provide the O-3s to be derived from oily cold water fish. A DHA supplement with a decent iodine source like seaweed or supplement is an option but not ideal.

                        Agreed but the OP is looking for alternatives for fish and didn't specifically mention O-3 so if one cannot or wishes not to eat fish then the next logical choice would be ruminants would it not? Maybe shellfish would be an alternative as I wouldn't lump them in with fish but maybe the OP has.

                          Hi Mainer. I would agree that the emphasis on O3 was my specification and not the OPs. The OP used the phrase "with similar benefit" which to me is the truly unique benefit of fish, including shell fish. Otherwise, I agree that beef and lamb are wonderful options.

                            Figured as much, all good.

                              Sorry everyone, I should have mentioned that I live on a college campus and usually the only fish that's offered is salmon, and the fish that they use in sushi (whatever it is).

                              I should also mention that we usually do have flax seeds. Would a spoonful of that in my mix of vegetables help?
