With the summer in full swing we are in the height of beach season. While many might want to shed a few pounds in order to gain that perfect beach body, which could mean sacrificing your favorite snacks and guilty pleasures, you don’t have to suffer! There is a healthy and delicious alternative meal that not only will keep you fit but also deny those cravings, and that’s crab cakes. Low in fat, high in protein and rich in omega-3 fatty acids, seafood is a healthy alternative to meat and poultry, and many of us would do well to eat more of it. Plus, according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the fatty acids found in fish and shellfish may help promote brain health.
The beauty of the cucumber is its water content: 95%, phenomenal in and of itself and not found in any other food. Seeing as it has such a high water content, this makes it a very hydrating food to consume containing large amounts of antioxidants. Cucumbers are in fact actually a fruit, and they are full of nutrients. Our bodies need minerals and vitamins for them to act properly. One cucumber has your bodies’ daily dose of vitamins. Some of the vitamins found in cucumbers include vitamin A, C, K, iron, calcium and potassium, which boosts immunity, gives you energy, and keeps you radiant.
Cooking with Cucumbers
Not only nutritious, cucumber is also a very diverse food, as it can go with nearly any dish while still retaining its nutrients and tastes. With its refreshing taste and of course being in summer season, it can make for a delicious and cooling soup. Cold cucumber soup can be bliss on hot summer nights. Many recipes play off this basic formula, including cucumber sauce for your crabs! Chop and peel a couple of cucumbers and toss them in a blender with some yogurt and seasonings of your choice. Add fresh lemon zest and chopped fresh dill, and it’s the lightest, brightest, most summer-perfect thing you can imagine drizzled over your Maryland crab cakes!
