Seafood? Yes please! Protein? Of course! Usually when I am creating a salad, I use the ingredients that I crave, or that are looking great at the supermarket. What I like about seafood, is the nutritional benefits. Crab is packed with protein, in fact most of the calories is all protein. This low calorie meat also contains zinc, iron, vitamins A, C and the B vitamins including B12. Many fish are at the higher end of the food chain of containing great amounts of mercury, but great news, crab is a low risk of mercury! But pairing the crab with some cucumber, adds fiber, antioxidants and potassium to this salad. And as for the celery, eat more celery because not only is it so good, it protects your liver and boosts digestion.
So start incorporating some crab into your diet! It's filling and great for your health. This quick cucumber crab salad is a great way to start eating crab.
