I think just about anything that is fresh and natural is better than anything concocted in a lab. I made the shrimp thing^^^ once and just out of curiosity, measured the butter before and after dipping a pound of shrimp in. I'd actually only consumed 1 tbsp of butter which is 102 calories. And the shrimp is heart healthy protein.
After my husband's open-heart bypass surgery he went to a cardiologist, we had never met before.
And the doctor started lecturing about healthy eating habits. He argued for a vegetarian diet, even Vegan. My husband told him he's not not a lesbian who eats tofu. That stopped that approach.
But the doctor said the key was not to eat anything with a "face", meaning having a mouth and eyes. And I asked him if that meant fish wasn't allowed, that I thought were healthy. No, he insisted, only vegetables.
I could see my husband was getting disturbed, and frankly I didn't like the condescending attitude. Just say "eat vegetarian", rather than "nothing with a face". We're not pre-schoolers.
So I asked: "Well, if Xxxxxx can't eat anything with a face, what if I put a paper bag over my head"? They were both stunned. Good. I HATE pushy authority figures, and I'm never intimidated by them.
Turns out this is an excellent doctor. My husband is still with him, years later. I think he now understands we're not to be treated like children. Sometimes you have to send them a signal, a message, that you're not senile yet, and expect respectful mature treatment. Now we get it.
