Why crab, you ask? Uhh, more like why not crab? Shellfish allergies aside, if you’re not eating crab, you’re missing out!

The juicy lean meat of a crab is full of protein (without the saturated fats) plus it’s a great source of anti-inflammatory EPA and DHA. It’s also got high levels of immune-system-supporting copper, zinc, and selenium.

Whether you’re eating crab on salads, avocados, crostini, or eggs, you’re going to love the rich, buttery texture and incredible (not fishy!) taste.
