Even if our ancestors hadn't adapted to a wet environment in the same way as aquatic mammals, it seems they would still have evolved to eat a lot of seafood due to settling near water. Perhaps it would have been easier for them to catch and cook... (more)

Ocean fish are the best source of iodine (cod, tuna, perch, etc) Ocean Shrimp and other crustaceans are good too. Typically you will get about half of your daily value (for whatever that is worth other than comparison) from a fresh (not... (more)

I often eat shrimp with the shells and tails on. A friend who owns a fish market turned me on to it... Lots of great flavor there and its a common practice in several cultures. Anybody have any idea what nutritional benefit they add vs shelled? ... (more)

I know the shells/tails contain astaxanthin, a powerful antioxident. it is what gives them the pink color and is part of why some of us pay a little more for krill oil instead of fish oil.

Sounds like you had an allergic reaction. I'd stay away from imitation (anything) since they are full of additives.

This looks pretty sustainable. I don't know if you'll be able to see the recipe I ran on NutritionData. It's only seriously lacking in riboflavin, vitamin K, A, C and E. No worse than a lot of paleo diets I'd say and easily fixable. (more)

If you happen to live near saltwater, let them dry and put them back out. Young oysters most readily attach themselves to spent oyster shells, helping to propagate the species. We dump them out near our dock to create a little oyster reef - it... (more)
