    Is Crab a healthy Meat?

    If you’re sick of the same old chicken every night and want to spice things up a bit, you might be thinking of different proteins to try instead! I’m such a fan of seafood because of its health benefits, tender and flaky texture and amazing flavor, so why not give it a whirl? Crab, in particular, has a variety of health benefits and you’re going to love love LOVE it in this crab and avocado salad. Here’s what makes it so nutritious:

    • Healthy Bones and Teeth: Crab contains phosphorous which is vital in the maintenance of bones and teeth.
    • Heart Healthy: Full of omega 3 fatty acids, crab can help balance cholesterol and is also anti-inflammatory.
    • Detoxify your Body: Skip the detox supplements and replace them with a healthy helping of crab meat! The phosphorous will improve kidney function which helps eliminate toxins from your body.
