I have practiced the seafood diet for as long as I can remember. So far, the diet has been quite easy. I mean, I just see food, and I eat it. I think it’s the kind of diet which suits many people, especially considering that it’s easily applicable. Sounds fishy? I hope not! When you’re on a seafood diet, you have got to know where to get the best. I’ll keep the post shrimp-le and get to the point!
Myseafood mart is the first and only full-fledged online seafood store that sells the freshest produce to deliver right to your doorstep. With more than 20 years of experience in the fishing industry, you’ve got nothing to doubt them about. They have five fishing trawler boats and even a special farm dedicated just to rear Dragon Grouper.
All of the seafood you see on their website is from their daily catch in Pulau Ketam. In fact, they were probably still swimming the morning of your order. The seafood wouldn’t even know what a freezer was because they have never touched it.
