Seafood - Margherita : All about food


Thursday, October 25, 2018


Seafood, such as fish and oysters, are among the best choices for fat-free proteins - as long as you do not soak or drown in butter!.

Fish and oysters are a great source of lean protein. Protein helps you fill and makes you feel good, which in turn helps you achieve your weight loss goals by making you less likely to eat high-calorie junk food. Protein also helps maintain consistent blood sugar levels, which improves mood and protects against type 2 diabetes.

Some fish and oysters are rich in vitamins and minerals such as selenium, vitamin B12, niacin, iron and zinc. Selenium in seafood is an antioxidant that can help in the treatment of arthritis and maintain healthy skin, while vitamin B-12 may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and slow decline in memory. Niacin is a vitamin B that may help prevent white water. Oysters, hot, rich-iron shrimp can help keep hair healthy. Zinc in oysters and lobster can also contribute to healthy hair and beautiful skin, while reducing the risk of macular degeneration.

Some oysters are high in cholesterol and therefore should be moderately ingested by individuals with high LDL cholesterol (if you have high cholesterol, talk to your doctor about the amount to be taken).

Fish that are cured, smoked, packaged or pickled are usually high in sodium and should be avoided by people with high blood pressure. If you have migraines, be aware that these types of fish, including anchovies, caviar, almonds, pickled herring, and sardines are also potential migraines.
