The healthy food movement is in full force as more and more individuals are becoming increasingly aware of what they are consuming. Live Maine lobster delivery service, GetMaineLobster.com, is excited about the opportunity to present healthy lobster recipes and is educating seafood lovers on the health benefits of lobster.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, lobster is a low-calorie meal with only one gram of non-saturated fat and one gram of carbohydrates in a 100-gram serving.
By comparison, lobster contains 98 calories in a 100-gram serving compared to 149 calories in a whole egg and 216 calories in chicken. Lobster also ranks lower in fat and cholesterol content when compared to lean beef, eggs and chicken. Furthermore, lobster packs a punch with 19 grams of protein and high levels of vitamins A, B2, B3, B6 and B12 with sources of potassium, zinc, iron, magnesium and essential amino acids.
According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the omega-3 fatty acids, low fat content and high protein found in lobster and other seafood may contribute to brain health over one’s lifetime.
