Eat Your Lobster

About a month or so ago, I was contacted by the guys at Get Maine Lobster.  They asked if I’d be interested in trying a sample of their products and if I liked them, spreading the word.

(Oh, twist my arm.  Give me free lobster.)

Of course, I happily accepted.

In addition to it’s absolutely to-die-for taste, lobster is one of the best sources of protein (at 28 grams per serving) and offers many health benefits to book, including: 

  • Significant amounts of B vitamins, including 17 percent of the recommended dietary allowance of niacin, 13 percent of the RDA of vitamin B-6 and 9 percent of the RDA of vitamin B-12 (which play vital roles in metabolism, neurological function, healthy skin maintenance and red blood cell formation)
  • Vitamin E, which is crucial to vitamin A and C absorption and the prevention of damage to cell membranes. Vitamin E is also a powerful antioxidant.
  • Large amounts of phosphorous, magnesium, potassium and zinc, offering 21 percent, 15 percent, 7 percent and 5 percent of the RDA, respectively. These minerals aid in bone health, cell function, glucose regulation, energy production and neurological health. Lobster also offers small amounts of other minerals.

How to prepare?   Being the fan of simply prepared, Paleo cuisine that I am, I opt to simply steam it.  Rather than douse it in butter or (gasp) make it into a lobster mac and cheese, just enjoy the flavor of the meat itself.
