Oysters

Aww shucks! The word oyster is used as a common name for a number of different families of saltwater clams. Oysters can be eaten cooked or raw, the latter being a delicacy. They are high in protein and zinc, and can help contribute to a healthy diet when eaten sparingly, as they do have a few nutritional drawbacks. For example, consuming too much zinc can be detrimental to your immune system and can make it more difficult to absorb other essential minerals.
