Stephanie Harris-Uyidi, national TV personality, producer and host of The Posh Pescatarian, a popular travel-adventure cooking TV series airing in more than 15 countries on the Z Living network, was recently at Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery to film an episode for the second season of the show. As an authoritative voice on the pescatarian lifestyle, she promotes a plant-based diet that is supplemented with seafood.

She put out her first book, The Posh Life Plan: Eat Well & Get Fit Pescatarian Style, which is a lifestyle guide created for people looking to transition into a healthy, active, meat-free way of living. She is currently working on her second book, while filming season two of the show.

She started her pescatarian journey for health reasons more than 15 years ago after a bout with stomach trouble. She discovered that a plant-based diet supplemented by seafood worked best for her. “The pescatarian lifestyle has helped me maintain my health and fitness, while allowing for the occasional indulgence,” she says.

At the time, information about pescatarian eating was scarce. She knew if she was struggling with the transition, there were others facing the same challenge. She decided to start a show about the pescatarian diet on YouTube. One year into the project, Food Network came calling, but, instead of signing with the network, she decided to produce and host her own show. “Beyond nutrition, my definition of the pescatarian lifestyle revolves around daily physical activity; practicing mindfulness; eating fresh, local whole foods, plus the occasional treat meal; meal prepping; and travel and adventure,” she says.

“Be sure to catch The Posh Pescatarian episodes (there are two) at the end of this year on Z Living Network,” says Maria Muro, publisher of New Orleans Living and founder of LiveWell Louisiana. “It will give you a few more reasons to indulge in Louisiana’s bounty of fresh seafood.”
