Being a born beach bum, I am always fascinated with the countless seashells strewn all over the sandy beach especially during low tide.
As a kid, I spent my early mornings chasing hermit crabs and picking up sea shells on the seashore that I find beautiful and unique. In fact to this day, I still have a modest collection of several varieties of seashells that come in various shapes, colors and sizes. I even have a large cornocopia that as a kid, I stick it up in my ear whenever I want to hear the enchanting splashing of the waves before I go to bed at night. Do do you believe that? LOL! Yes, that’s how my fertile imagination was like as a child.
How about you? Do you like sea shells?
Aside from my hobby of collecting beautiful seashells by the seashore, I also have a penchant for cooking and eating edible seashells.
Clam soup for example, is an ideal dish that is delectable and has medicinal properties as well. Clams are rich in iodine and is a preventive cure for goiter.

There are several ways of cooking other varieties of seashells. Mind you, they are all very nutritious!
Have you ever tried eating seashell dishes?
I love eating fish. If people who loves eating veggies are called vegetarians, then call me a “pescetarian”.
Yes, I prefer eating fish in all its culinary forms than eating pork or beef. Do you know that fish is considered a brain food?
Fish also reduces the risk of heart ailments, stroke, obesity, arthritis, high blood pressure and cancer.
Pork, chicken and beef are usually prepared with chemicals or preservatives that may prove harmful to our health. Moreso, for canned sausages, liver spreads, corned beef and hotdogs.

Fish is likewise an iron builder thus lowering the risk of developing anemia. Mind you, most vegetarians may succumb to anemic deficiencies.
So, don’t you wish you were a “pescetarian” like me?
