Crab Salad With Artichoke Hearts & Boiled Eggs

Crab Salad With Artichoke Hearts & Boiled Eggs
Indulge in a different kind of protein for tastier gains.

Chicken breasts, canned tuna, and egg whites are the preferred protein choices of physique-conscious folk everywhere, but they’re not the only smart options. Shellfish is an often-overlooked but exceptional protein food that can add variety and flavor to your diet. Crabmeat in particular is high in B vitamins and omega-3 fats, and, unlike tuna, it has very low mercury levels. At the same time, it’s as easy to prepare as a tuna salad sandwich. This crabmeat salad tastes like something you might order at a nice seaside tavern, and with 42 grams of protein and very low carbs, it won’t add an ounce of fat to your frame.

Mix all ingredients below into a large bowl: 

1 six oz. can lump crabmeat
4 tbsp low-fat mayo or mayo substitute (such as Vegenaise)
1 cup artichoke hearts
4 hard-boiled eggs
1/4 cup fresh basil
Old Bay or Cajun seasoning to taste
