Cholesterol

Are oysters high in cholesterol?

Previously oysters were thought to contain high amounts of cholesterol but now, since new methods of calculating cholesterol levels are more accurate, oysters have been removed from the restricted list. Oysters are naturally low in fat, sodium, and calories. They are also a very good source of high quality protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and iron. A three ounce cooked portion of oysters contains only 93 milligrams of cholesterol

Oysters are not only delicious, but they're also one of the most nutritionally well balanced of foods, containing protein, carbohydrates and lipids. The National Heart and Lung Institute suggest oysters as an ideal food for inclusion in low-cholesterol diets. Oysters are an excellent source of vitamins A, B1(thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), C (ascorbic acid) and D (calciferol). Four or five medium size oysters supply the recommended daily allowance of iron, copper, iodine, magnesium, calcium, zinc, manganese and phosphorus.

Where did the saying happy as a clam come from?

This saying originated in the early 1800s in the northeast United States, where they eat a lot of clams. At first blush, the phrase seems kind of weird—what could clams possibly have to be happy about?

Turns out our modern idiom is missing some key context. The original phrase was actually “happy as a clam at high tide” or “at high water.” Clams can only be harvested at low tide, so they’re safe and therefore presumably happy at high tide. It’s not completely clear how or why the phrase got shortened, but the meaning has remained pretty much the same.
