Seafood Benefits for Health Conscious Holidays
The holidays always feel like a time to cut loose from the diet for a bit and feast like we’re never going to see tomorrow. However, sometimes it’s also better to stick to the diet and maintain your goals, even if it’s inconvenient.
Too bad there’s no way to have the best of both worlds. Or is there? Maine Lobster is not usually described as a healthy food. But the reality is that our iconic crustaceans are filled with nutrients and often low in fat, making Maine Lobster arguably the best food you can imagine for those that want to reach their wellness goals.
So, in today’s blog, we’ll be exploring just how healthy seafood, and especially Maine lobster, can be so that you can have the best of both worlds this holiday season!
Delicious & Nutritious
As previously stated, seafood is packed with nutrients, particularly those that aren’t commonly found in more “land-based” diets. For example, vitamin D, which many Americans are usually deficient in these days, is frequently found in Salmon and Tuna. Vitamin D is a vital nutrient for the body, aiding Calcium absorption, immune function and contributes to our mental and emotional well-being.
Above all, however, is the high levels of quality protein found in most wild-caught fish. When combined with their low-fat levels, most fish make the perfect food for those looking to up their gym gains or lose a bit of the winter weight.
Omega-3 For the Heart
Omega-3 fatty acids are commonly listed as something most seafood excels in delivering to the body, with salmon and cod being especially rich. Omega-3 helps the body lower dangerous cholesterol and, by extension, reduces the symptoms of chronic hypertension.
Furthermore, Omega-3 fatty acids work wonders when lowering levels of harmful triglycerides, reducing your risk of suffering a stroke or heart attack!
What About Maine Lobsters?
This is the fun part, Maine Lobster is arguably one of the healthiest plates of seafood you can eat!
Lobster is rich in zinc, Vitamin B12, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Omega-3 fatty acids. At the same time, lobster also has a low amount of fat and contains fewer calories than lean beef, chicken, and pork!
But, what does this all do, you ask?
Well, this means that not only is Maine lobster some of the leanest meat around, it also means it gives a massive host of benefits, with some studies noting incredible potential benefits such as :
- Reduced inflammation in the joints
- Lower risk of cardiac arrest, strokes
- Reduced symptoms of hypertension and lower cholesterol
- More restful sleep and increased energy
Yeah, if you thought lobsters were lacking in the health department, then you couldn’t be more wrong. So grab yourself a bundle today from our holiday package collection and have the healthiest holiday feast out there!
