Lobster: the Nutritional Powerhouse

Lobster: the Nutritional Powerhouse

lobster - a mood boosting food and nutritional powerhouseDid  you know that Maine lobster is awesomely nutritious for you?!  It is!

Very low in calories, (142 in a cup of lobster meat) and very high in selenium, Vitamin B12, potassium, zinc…. this is a major mood booster food.

Straight-up steamed lobster (sans butter, which for a lobster-lover like me is practically unthinkable), is super-low in fat; it’s almost fat-free.  If you’re really avoiding fats, try cider vinegar with it — that’s what got me started on this post, reading a friend’s comment on Facebook that that’s what he’s going to do tonight.  I’ve never tried it, and seriously can’t imagine it, so if you do, or have, please leave a message in the comments section below telling us what you think of it.

So, the next time you’re feeling a little down-in-the-dumps, improve your mood and your waistline with a delicious steamed lobster.

Caveat emptor: lobsters collect mercury and other heavy metals in their bodies, especially in the tamale, the green stuff.  Don’t eat the green stuff, ever.  Also best to buy a larger number of smaller lobsters, because they have smaller amounts of toxins.  But still don’t eat the green stuff.

Lobster-Buying Tip: This lobster afficionado prefers soft-shell lobsters to hard-shell.  They’re easier to get the meat out of, they’re sweeter, and more tender.  Enjoy!
