Scallops might be small in size, but they have big health benefits. In fact, some experts say that scallops are one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Among their many benefits, scallops are 80% protein and a great source of antioxidants. In some cultures, they’ve even been used to treat conditions like diabetes, indigestion and help protect against cancer.

Like scallops, oysters are also considered a superfood. Full of minerals such as vitamin D, copper, zinc, manganese and calcium, oysters are known to support bone health, especially for women at risk of osteoporosis.
