Crabs

Maybe being crabby is a good thing! Crabs are classified as Crustaceans, and come in a number of varieties, including Alaskan King, Blue, Snow, Soft-shell and Stone. For a minimal amount of calories, plan, steamed crab meat offers lots of protein, a multitude of minerals and several B vitamins. Be careful about which varieties you choose though; some types are much higher in sodium and cholesterol than others, which can be detrimental to those already at risk for heart disease.
