Although lobster is considered to be a type of seafood, it does in fact have meat in it, both the meat that is in the body and that which is in the claws. You will find that even though lobster can be very expensive to purchase at the supermarket or order in a restaurant, it is packed with vitamins, minerals, and various nutrients which are important for the body to have. Lobster is very low in unhealthy fat and high in things like potassium as well as iron and protein.
It has omega-3 fats which are the good types of fats that the body needs in order to function properly. Those who consider themselves vegetarians often times do not eat lobster, though there are still some that do. Vegans on the other hand do not eat any animals or animal by-products, including lobster.
