Eat- The- Bowl Summer Salad
This high- protein, low- cal combo is a snap to make and a treat to eat
This high- protein, low- cal crabavocado combo is a snap to make and a treat to eat.
Every so often Chef Jeannette comes up with ideas to put some of my favorite foods together in a way I’d never think of doing— and the sheer magic of the result blows my mind. And this recipe is definitely one of those times.
If you’ve seen the cover of my book Smart Fat, you already know what I think of avocados. They’re one of the greatest foods on the planet. Most people know that avocados are rich in healthy monounsaturated fat, but you might not know that they’ re also fiber heavyweights (9 grams in a single California avocado, and a whopping 15 grams in a cup of purée).
The fresh crabmeat in this lovely “Crabacado” summer salad recipe is high- protein and low- calorie. It’s further enhanced by the addition of creamy avocado and Greek yogurt, not to mention a pinch of fresh herbs— try tarragon, dill, or cilantro. It’s an all- around winning combo! — Dr. Jonny
