Oysters, tasty morsels

Imagine if Oysters created something other then pearls. I can bet that people would be scrambling to catch oysters even more if they made diamonds. Or perhaps they could make opals, emeralds or rubies. Yes that would be amazing, but what is even more amazing is that they provide low calorie proteins that are an excellent source of zinc, vitamin B-12, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Gulf oysters are consumed by many and most often in great quantities. There are some precautions that should be taken.
There is a new site call BeOysterAware.com that has all sorts of information regarding how to make sure the oysters you eat are safe. They just want to point out all the safety points when it comes to consuming those tasty mollusks.

Like did you know if you are in an at risk category such as if you have liver disease, diabetes, cancer, or stomach disorders you should avoid raw oysters and make sure the oysters you do consume have been post harvest processed and for the highest amount of protection consume them properly cooked.

also has some great recipes like grilled oysters, oysters alfredo, oyster cakes, Oyster Cornbread Dressing, Oyster Dip, & Chicago-Style Oyster Pizza.

So if you are a veteran to eating oysters or maybe you are thinking about trying, make sure you are Oyster Aware.
