A solitary zero isn’t always the most welcome number. Places you do not want to see a zero include but are not limited to checking accounts, scoreboards, and thermometers.
There are, however, loads of places where zero is a thrill. In the deep of winter, this sometimes season of restrictions, we get a little giddy to see zeros incorporated into healthy seafood recipes. Our winter seafood options are packed with beneficial things like iron, calcium, and micronutrients, and low in stuff you don’t want collecting in your body like saturated fat. Check out this US FDA Seafood Nutrient Composition Chart for more information.
This is a great time of year for North Carolina seafood with several seasons that opened January 1st (triggerfish, vermilion snapper, and more). On top of that, we’ve got some exciting events in the pipeline.
Recap: Healthy products, neat events, and folks who care about bringing those things + the best NC seafood to the Triangle every week. Reasons to keep up with Locals Seafood > 0
