Getting tired of the typical chicken or fish rotation day in and day out? Try mixing up your protein with Trader Joe’s Wild Caught Frozen Crab Meat. Crab is a great lean source of protein (just 45 calories and 11g protein for 2 oz) and is a good source of many vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin B12 and the antioxidant mineral selenium. Crab is also a decent source of heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids (about 350 mg per 3 oz serving) and taste great on top of a big salad. Crab is notorious for being pricey, but TJ’s offers this tasty crustacean for just $7.99 for ½ pound. When choosing crab meat always go for the real thing- imitation crab is just white fish that has been highly processed with salt and sugar added. Other fun recipe ideas: try tossing with black beans, green chilies, diced tomatoes and taco seasoning for a quick crab taco or make a tasty crab cake using ground oats instead of bread crumbs! Happy grocery shopping!
