Get The Best Lobster at PJ Lobster House
Lobster is a beloved shellfish option that is widely versatile. It’s most often boiled or steamed and can be eaten all on its own or combined with ingredients to create delectable entrees, sandwiches, pasta, dips, and more. It isn’t always diners’ first choice as it is on the more expensive side, but it is a very nutritious option that should be enjoyed when possible! PJ Lobster House is the place to get lobster! We’re here to tell you all the health benefits of lobster and share some of our favorite lobster dishes.
Though lobster is on the pricier side today, it didn’t start out that way. Believe it or not, lobster used to be a symbol of poverty! In the 17th century, colonists in Massachusetts only served lobster to their workers and employees. Even more impressive, it used to be canned and only cost 11 cents per pound back in the 1940s.
Lobster is a great food if you’re looking for a shellfish high in protein and low in calories and fat. It’s high in omega-3 fatty acids as well, which are important for heart health. Many worry about the cholesterol levels in lobster, but unless you are vulnerable to heart disease, it won’t negatively affect your health. When it comes to vitamins and minerals, lobster is high in both copper and selenium. Copper helps in producing energy and DNA and selenium can aid in reducing cancer risk. It boosts your immune system and can prevent thyroid diseases. Calcium, choline, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc, selenium, and vitamin E can all be found in lobster and are vital to keep your body running healthily and happily!
