Real Food on a plate. Crabmeat, Eggs, Cottage cheese, and Mayo. Spinach and avocado. Because a keto dinner doesn’t have to be complicated. Crabmeat & egg plate is a brilliant combo! All the ingredients used here are high on good fats and low on carbs and provide various health benefits.
Crabmeat is a delicious protein option rich in B vitamins, phosphorus, selenium, copper, and omega-3’s. One thing to be cautious of when shopping for crab meat is the imitation stuff. Always opt for real crab as imitation is a highly processed food that can contain all kinds of starches, sugar, and even MSG. It’s actually made of white fish and wheat as well.
This is especially useful information for keto-dieters because of all the added starches a single serving of imitation crab meat can contain up to 20g of carbs. Another ingredient used in this recipe, Cottage Cheese is a great source of healthy fats—and, with only 3.5 grams of carbs per 100 grams, it makes for a perfect low-carb, high-fat food for your ketogenic lifestyle.
Whereas, Eggs are one of the healthiest and most versatile foods on the planet and are a great source of protein and can be used in various cuisines. Avocado and spinach are purely keto-friendly vegetables and you can incorporate them in various meals too.
Good fats and proteins are vital in every meal of the day when you are following a low carb or keto diet to provide you various health benefits and weight loss results as well. This recipe is fully packed with good macronutrients required by your body and the best meal option for non-vegetarian keto dieters. An easy yet fancy family brunch for you!
