And if so is not getting adequate seafood causing harm? And if so what harm is it causing? I was just reading up on the aquatic ape theory and they seem to think that humans evolving in an aquatic environment would account for a lot of our... (more)
I often eat shrimp with the shells and tails on. A friend who owns a fish market turned me on to it... Lots of great flavor there and its a common practice in several cultures. Anybody have any idea what nutritional benefit they add vs shelled? ... (more)
Good source of glucosamine/chondroitin. Good for joints. Shells and tails are often used in stock, like bones of other animals. I imagine a good source of calcium and other unspoken minerals, but don't quote me on that.
I can only eat canned tuna, and canned clams/bottled clam juice, as far as seafood goes. It's the only allergy I've had my whole life. I've never tried canned salmon. I basically vomit after any fish or seafood, always, and I have had... (more)
We know grass-fed beef is better than grain-fed, wild fish is better than farmed fish, ... But I personally know nothing at all about shellfish? How do you know if oysters are high-quality or not? The only ones I can get online are the ones on... (more)
I don't eat any kind of shellfish. shrimps, oysters, clams, crabs, scallops, lobsters... I used to, but stopped all together about two years ago. I cut it out initially as a part of my elimination diet and I just never added it back. I'm... (more)
I have taken elimination diet to the extreme, out of necessity. My current plan is white rice and scallops and water, and literally nothing else. The aquatic ape theory and my self-experiments suggest that this is indefinitely sustainable. I'm... (more)
Well, you're looking down the barrel of a case of scurvy, but other than that, you'll get most other vitamins and minerals in sufficient amounts, assuming you eat enough food in general. One thing you may also become deficient in is enjoyment, but... (more)
Hi, just wondering what the protocol on Slug-eating is? There are many huge ones crawling around my property and I might avail myself of them(raw or cooked) if they are edible. I realize there are many types of slugs so maybe a description can... (more)
I don't mean to be a slug-eating party pooper, but it would be irresponsible to simply advocate chomping them down because they are wild, local, and arguably "slow" food. Case in point, this Australian man who contracted meningitis and almost... (more)
I've been doing hardcore elimination diets for a year or two, experimenting. I was never able to stick to ketosis because of the carb cravings. It took tremendous willpower and I could only do a couple of months without cheating. Recently I... (more)
I do think micronutrients matter, particularly in ketosis. The iodine in the scallops can help support the thyroid, which is important since there is some evidence that low-carb can lead to low-thyroid issues (which may actually be more about... (more)
Having eaten several raw oysters, I find myself sitting on several large shells. Can I make stock from them? Dry and grind them down to a mineral powder? Anyone ever do anything with oyster shells besides tossing them?
I was having a good discussion with a close friend of mine who is on an elimination-reintroduction trial and having excellent results. As such, he was open to some of my paleo arguments. The catch is, he's been a vegan or near-vegan for a while... (more)
The first meat I ate again post-vegetarian was bivalves. I think that's probably pretty common... for me it was the beginning of the end, eating bivalves gave me the push I needed to reconsider my dietary habits, maybe that's how it is for him,... (more)
Scientific American had a cool story in the August issue about the near extinction of the human race during an iceage explaining the very similar genetic makeup of the majority of the human genome. One key part of the survival was hunter gathers... (more)
Hey all, I'm an avid free diver and like to bring home some abs and rockfish when i can, but the only tried and true way of cooking abs I know is either breaded and cooked in grape seed oil or put in a ceviche. Does anyone know how I can cook up... (more)
I'm starting a new relationship and just found out he has a shellfish allergy! I am a shrimp and crab lover! Can I eat she'll fish at all? Does anyone know how long it could stay in my system? Help!!!!
Hi Everyone - I'm allergic to shellfish, but the worst one is shrimp. Perhaps asking a naive question, is there anything I can do to eat them? I would love to be able to eat Shrimp and Lobster, not only for the taste, but the protein and variety.... (more)
I had ceviche made with imitation crab and fish, and I notice that maybe an hour later my current acne started to itch. Can crab or fish cause acne or make it worst? Also, I don???t know if its coincidence, but my face started to clear up, only... (more)
So I've been doing my version of paleo for a couple of months now, and have been adding stuff to my diet that I never ate before either because I didn't like it or thought it was unhealthy. I now really like steak, eggs, good bacon, etc. I'd... (more)
I think the easiest shellfish are scallops seared in ghee an sprinkled with some fresh parsley or tarragon. Sweet and taste like the ocean. Get them fresh not frozen if you don't want a fishy taste.
I was just awarded $50 gift card from our local food store for commenting on several things they could do better. At this time, I cant eat red meat because of what it does to me....Keeping that in mind....(no i am not ready to try grassfed beef... (more)
lately i've been noticing a contingent of paleo that recommends eating at least half of daily protein as seafood, either fish or shellfish. also sisson recently did those articles on wild & farmed seafood. i haven't eaten seafood in a long... (more)
