Get ready for National Lobster Day this upcoming September 25th!
Did you know that in the old days, in Boston, you could buy canned lobster for 11 cents per pound? Yes, there was a time when lobster was so over-saturated in New England that you could get it dirt cheap, and they even used it to feed prisoners. It only became expensive when folks around the rest of the country got a taste of it, fell in love with it, and skyrocketed the demand. Nowadays, it’s much scarcer and seafood aficionados have a much greater appreciation for it.
As we get older, taking care of our hearts becomes increasingly important. A contributing factor to sustaining a healthy heart is what we put in our bodies.

One of the easiest and best ways to help your cardiovascular system is by consuming one of the most popular forms of protein, fish.
According to the American Heart Association, two servings of fish a week are beneficial. Fish such as salmon, sardine, cod, and trout have an abundance of Omega 3’s which the heart needs to promote healthy blood flow and lowers the body’s inflammatory responses.
