Today was my first time trying oysters (ie "salty jelly that's still alive" as described by someone I know) thanks to @bytowneofest @thewhalesbone_sustainable & @buchipop… verdict: 10/10 would eat again! Oysters are actually very healthy. They deliver 16 grams of protein per 6-ounce serving; they're rich in vitamins C and B-12; and they're loaded with zinc, selenium, and iron. I added each of the sauces from @thewhalesbone as well as lemon juice and horseradish. I want more! #oysterfest #oysters #ottawa #myottawa #igersottawa #ottcity #health #healthy #healthyfood #seafood #healthychoices #healthyliving #healthyeating #fitness #getfit #fitspo #fitfam #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation
