Nutrition
is at the core of
everything your body
does for you.

From health to sickness,
from energy to lethargy,
from happiness to depression –
the necessary nutrients your cells
receive or do not receive affect
everything about you. If only one cell
in your body is deprived, it slowly affects
the rest of you.

How should you
clean your teeth?
Let me count the ways!
When I was a kid
going to the dentist,
my dentist always told me
I had to brush harder.
What did that mean?
When my family moved to another city,
my new dentist told me totally different
things about brushing my teeth.

My Favorite Paleo Recipes:
Crispy Oysters

        Alvin H. Danenberg, DDS       September 21, 2015

 

evolution rOysters are very healthy and nutrient-dense. When you eat an oyster, you are eating “the whole animal from head to tail”.

 

Oysters from the East Coast are more nutrient-dense than those from the West Coast. For example, 100 grams of East Coast oysters contain the following nutrients along with their Recommended Percent Daily Value (%): B12 (324%), Zinc (605%), Copper (223%), Selenium (91%), Omega 3:Omega 6 (629mg:27mg). In contrast, 100 grams of West Coast oysters contain the following nutrients and their Recommended Daily Value (%): B12 (267%), Zinc (111%), Copper (79%), Selenium (110%), Omega 3:Omega 6 (740mg:32mg). Either way, oysters are delicious and very Paleo healthy.

 

Here in Charleston, SC, oysters are readily available in season (those months with an “r” in them). I usually eat them raw. But, here is my way of making them crispy.

 

Paleo Crispy Oysters

 

Ingredients:

 

1 Pint container of shucked raw oysters
2 Eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 C coconut flour
1/4 C almond flour
1 Tbs Old Bay Seasoning
1 Tsp sea salt
2-3 Tbs coconut oil or lard

 

Preparation:

 

  • Drain the oysters, and spread them on a paper towel to absorb most of the liquid
  • Place beaten eggs in a bowl, and set aside.
  • Mix almond flour, coconut flour, Old Bay, and salt together in separate bowl.
  • Dip the oysters in the egg, then in the flour mixture to coat thoroughly.
  • Set breaded oysters on a plate, and then place them in the refrigerator to chill and allow breading to adhere.
  • Heat the coconut oil in a pan on medium high heat.
  • Fry coated oysters on each side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve with dipping sauce – homemade mayo, tomato paste, and Old Bay seasoning.
