Today's Tip: Don't be shellfish.
I know. Believe me, I know.
I have given up shellfish. The clams and oysters are no problem. I never liked them anyway. But the crabs! And the shrimp, oh, the shrimp. And the crab stuffed shrimp! I grew up on the Gulf coast. This is more than dinner, it is a way of life. But I have walked away from it.
Shellfish are scavengers. They are very handy to have on the planet as the ocean doesn't have a sewage system. They clean up what others leave behind. And as tasty as they are, I don't want to eat what they have been eating so I don't eat them. It is all part of trying to be less toxic and living healthier.
Again, I'm sorry. While I don't keep kosher, they are not on God's list. I try to listen to what He says. He designed the machine, so He should know how to take care of it.
(I always say that, but I think of Mrs. Fulgham every time I do. I must change my ways.)
