One of the best parts of vacationing on the coast (in my opinion) is the seafood. I FREAKING love seafood. I eat it at home all of the time....but there is nothing like FRESH, right out of the water seafood. My personal FAVE being crab legs. Snow crab, king crab...I don't care...as long as there is butter for dipping. As Eric and I were leaving dinner two nights ago, I was explaining how much I love the challenge of eating crab legs. It is insanely rewarding to get a big and juicy piece of crab meat out of the shell. Anyone else agree? Anyway, Minus the sodium and of course butter dip-age, crab is a pretty healthy choice. I had never really thought about it before, but I figured it had to be an awesome source of protein. Here are the facts peeps....and it is def a protein-packed dinner choice.
There are 73 calories in 1 snow crab, body section with 3 legs, cooked, shell removed of Baked or Broiled Crab.Calorie breakdown: 42% fat, 0% carbs, 57% protein.
Not too shabby for vacation-dining. Eat up. YUMMY.
