We adore seafood recipes. We love getting protein from different sources because having a balanced, varied diet helps us stay healthy and strong. March 9 is National Crab Meat Day. That one of those weird holidays that is sort of pointless yet really fun to celebrate. With 1.5 million tons of crab eaten worldwide every year, it’s safe to say that it’s a pretty popular dish. But, many of us default to just enjoying it with butter.

In our opinion, if there is one absolute best way to enjoy crab, it’s in the form of a crab cake. But, the bread crumbs can make them very high in carbs.

The name of this recipe is a fib. While it will thrill anyone at your dinner table and is great for serving company, it’s not mac and cheese. The trick to this low-carb mac and cheese is that there is no mac. It’s a cauliflower dish. It’s a creamy, savory and wonderfully cheesy meal that we enjoy immensely. The combination of crab and cheese is terrific! But calling it mac and cheese seems a bit silly. A serving has 163 calories, five grams of carbs and two grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
We might be done with winter, but in many areas of the country, it’s not done with us! That’s where this perfect soup comes in! This is wonderful for a warming lunch or cozy, satisfying dinner.

Using the cauliflower stalk rather than the florets gives you nice chunks with a solid texture that can stand in for potatoes.
