I know that seafood wise, scallops are easier to digest than shrimp.  But where to crawfish fall in the scale?
 
I know that they do a spicy blend and a not so spicy blend (hooray!).  There will always be potatoes too.
 
Everyone is expecting me to eat this.  Which I do want to try.  I'm a northerner and they've been waiting months for this!  And when I say they're excited for me to try this, I mean it.  It's almost weird.
 
It's an all day affair - the stuff yourself kind (which I know I can't do) - so moderation and chewing well will be key.
 
Any advice?

EAT!!! I drive a truck and every time I get the chance, I eat them. I never have had a problem. Even when in a flare, I would eat them.

Go slow. If for a second you think they are not agreeing with you...stop. You health and well-being is mor important than wether or not they want you to eat them.

I live in Louisiana and love crawfish.  I have been lucky though and have not really needed to adjust my diet. tongue    So, thet have never been a problem for me.  Definately do what is best for you.  I hope you enjoy them if you decide to try them.  Down here, we suck the heads.

Crawfish are actually most closely related to lobster. They're low in fat, and the spices they're cooked in don't really get into the meat much because of the shell. Should be fine to eat, as long as you don't drench them in butter or fiery sauce. And they're absolutely delicious! I'd suggest you don't suck the heads, though, as the purpose of doing that is to get the flavorful fat that's stored there. Since fat doesn't always agree with us....

Like others have said, food that you've never ever had before can be risky. Take it slow and if you think for a second that things might not go good.... get a big paper towel to hide the food and make your friends happy! :p

Thanks for the info! Definitely makes me less anxious.

Good to know about the heads - don't need the extra fat, these guts wouldn't like that even in remission!

sodbuster - if fiery hot wings don't do you in, I don't know that there's anything that could! I'm craving wings - so next week, so mild tenders from a place where the breading is really gentle are on my to-do list. That is if this weekend sits well...
