chilli crab courgetti

This is such a fresh tasting dish and it literally takes minutes to cook.

It is low on carbs, making a perfect dish for low-carb diets too.

Crab meat has many health benefits, as the Omega 3 fatty acids, copper and selenium can reduce inflammation and selenium has been directly linked to stimulating immune system.

Eating a sugar heavy diet causes inflammation in the body and also reduced the immune system by up to 50% and for up to 5 hours after eating.

You can read about more of the health benefits of cutting sugar out of your diet in my blog post here 17 Amazing Things That Happen When You Stop Eating Sugar.

So why not give this meal a go - as well as being good for you, the tangy, fragrant and spicy flavours compliment the meatiness of the crab perfectly and the courgetti makes for a simple substitute for pasta too.
