Happy seafood choices for the holidays

Beyond the hams and the turkeys, people will be eating lots of salmon and shrimp during the holidays. But don’t eat THAT shrimp! It’s just too naughty.

The dining concept combines friendship, food, and healthy living.
Feel good about the food your share.

Be nice to yourself and your planet’s health by making good, sustainable seafood choice. Here in one easy web page are all the resources you need: http://www.seafoodwatch.org/businesses-and-organizations/tools. Give thanks to Seafood Watch!

If you’re too busy to think, buy strictly local seafood.

Here are a few other simple rules to follow:

  1. avoid shrimp, grouper, and shark
  2. if you must have shrimp, spend extra on U.S. wild caught
  3. don’t trust names. The majority of sushi is a different species than advertised.
  4. Trust a local fisher or fish monger.

People in the Miami area can attend the Taste of the Sea event this Thursday evening, December 4.

You are what you eat, and you don’t want to be a stinky, dying fish. Choose the nicest, healthiest fish from the sea.

  • Why needlessly cause any animals to be killed, expose yourself to the hazards of animal-sourced seafood, and support environmental destruction? The humane, healthful, environmentally responsible alternative is to opt for plant-sourced food, including vegan seafood! It’s convenient, affordable, and delicious!
