Do shrimp scare you?

What about butter? In other words, are you scared of certain types of food because you think they’re really bad for your cholesterol? Most of us have heard advice to avoid “this” or cut back on “that”. And most of us follow that advice blindly. In some cases the experts admit (usually a long time later) that they might have been wrong.

How can the average person really know what’s safe to eat and what is bad for them? One way is to keep up to date with the latest news. That can be confusing though. Another is to take a balanced view and do a little bit of thinking. Research on the web is fast and easy. There’s no reason not to consider multiple sources of information.

Take shrimp, for example. Many people are scared to eat it because it’s said to be high in cholesterol. Same with eggs. Research recently has suggested that eggs may not be that bad for you, after all. Then you have the whole debate about whether dietary cholesterol is actually as dangerous as people are led to believe.

So I regularly scour the web for new and updated information. Today I found an article that is thought provoking to say the least. You can read a shrimp recipe by clicking here – and also read why it may not be as bad for you as you imagined.

Quite a thought provoking piece. The gist of it is that the benefits of shrimp might outweigh any possible bad effects. That’s something to keep in mind with all foods. Sometimes there is a trade-off between the good and “bad” effects. Food is essential to life, obviously. So if you’re going to have to eat anyway, why not choose meals that are delicious and seem to have a natural protective quality, overall?

All it takes is a little time spent researching for new recipes, with detailed information. The recipe I’ve mentioned gives a lot of background information why it’s good for you. Take a few minutes to read it and you might be surprised at what you learn.

The only thing I would say is that the photo is not very appetizing! I like to see my shrimp after they’ve been cooked. The pink color is much more pleasant to my eyes than the raw color!
