It’s a new year, some of us are back to work, back to school and back to eating with a little more purpose.
From the start of hunting season through the holiday season, my snacking spiraled out of control. It started with the occasional snack here and there and eventually led to large meals followed by more snacking and decedent desserts. But starting this week, I’m officially breaking that cycle of overindulging on high-calorie, low-nutrient foods, and I couldn’t be more excited about getting back on track and feeling like my best self again!
Knowing what’s in our food and where it comes from is always a great place to start when eating with purpose, and there’s no better lean, nutrient-dense protein to start with than our very own Dungeness crab. Newport is after all, “The Dungeness Crab Capital of the World,” and with crabbing season in full swing, there’s no reason to not take full advantage of that beautiful crab meat that’s rich in vitamins and minerals, high in protein, low in fat and contains Omega-3 polyunsaturated acids.
Crab is one of the best possible dietary sources of protein available, so how lucky are we that we’re right here on the central Oregon coast where it’s so abundant.
So to kick off eating with a purpose, here’s a low carb recipe that’s just as high in protein as it is flavor!
