This is definitely a fertility meal. Because Scott and I are planning on getting knocked up in the not so distant future, I’ve been trying to create more nutrient dense meals. Seafood is obviously one of the most nutritious foods. The mussels especially, they contain several B vitamins, namely B12. They’re also rich in selenium and zinc – not to mention that they’re a great and environmentally sound protein source.
