The Green-lipped Mussel From Da-Peng Bay Lagoon In Taiwan

in travel •  last year 

 Green-lipped Mussels Are Prized For Their Health Benefits And Their Beauty

These spectacular Green-lipped mussels are only able to grow in small isolated environments that have the correct and extremely unique marine conditions needed for their growth. Da-Peng Bay Lagoon in Taiwan and certain areas in New Zealand, are the main two places known to fit these unique conditions. The people living in these areas include them as a main part of their local diet. 

These extremely rare mussels are beautiful to look at and even better to eat. They are prized for their plump and juicy bodies. The Shells, even, are gorgeous.  The Green-lipped Mussels are another example of the many treasures and delicacies coming out of Taiwan.

Researchers in recent years have began to study the indigenous peoples that have stayed true to their native diet  to see if there are any differences between the same tribe that has moved inland. The only difference in the two groups was that those living by the sea, had kept their diet as it had always been. They eat a lot of Green-lipped Mussels. The main difference in their health was simply fewer joint pains and less arthritis.  

When you are traveling in Taiwan, take time to discover Da-Peng Bay Lagoon. Not only is the lagoon beautiful, but it is filled with more of Taiwan's treasures from the sea. Pack your back pack, and grab your your passport. It is time for the adventure of a lifetime.

They are very delicious @reatimtim.

Oh, that's what you call them - green-lipped mussels! Had these when I was in New Zealand. We just simply call it Coromandel mussels (because Coromandel is where they harvest these). They are very rich, chewy and delicious! Best way to cook these is to saute or in a soup.

Thanks for sharing this @exploretraveler. Never knew mussels are more nutrient-rich that I thought.

Yes, there are only a few places where you can find these @everydayart.

Hmmmmmmp yummy, one of my favorite seafoods

i love this but im always hesitant specially when you dont know if there is red tide.

Ohh i love mussels. I love it baked, grilled or steamed. I knew it has lots of benefits aside from being delicious. We call it "tahong" in the Phils. And it is abundant in here. Upvoted, commented, resteemed by rubelynmacion

I would love to go to Taiwan and to eat these mussels. I love a shellfish and those look great! They have high airfare from Bangkok though. I would only go for long term - not a holiday :)

You are part of this week’s Sunday Resteeming Project by Sharon @fitinfun. I use this day to take all of the @kryptonia resteem offers and showcase them.

I normally do not take offers that require resteeming, but I decided to do a trial of it on Sundays for a few weeks to see how it goes. So far, it’s been great!

I have almost 4000 steemit followers, so maybe this will help your visibility :)
