Fancy, yet simple, crab cakes are a fun treat for family and friends. These Paleo Crab Cakes are easy to make without bread crumbs!
When Dr. Weston Price studied traditional cultures, he found that the healthiest were the ones who had access to seafood. I make it a point to eat plenty of seafood all week.
When you are gluten or grain free, it’s best to make patties at home so you know there are no bread crumbs or other additives in them.
I used to be intimidated by crab cake recipes, but have found that they are actually just as easy as making a burger patty. This recipe uses crab from the can, but feel free to use fresh crabmeat if you have it.
The white sweet potato adds body and helps bind the crab cakes together. I love these white sweet potatoes (Japanese sweet potato) – they are really sweet.
Crabmeat is a good source of folate and potassium, and a very good source of protein, phosphorus, zinc, copper and selenium. It’s also high in cholesterol which, according to new official guidelines, is just fine, because they have finally acknowledged that dietary cholesterol has nothing to do with blood levels of cholesterol.
Now, conventional health officials just have to acknowledge that blood levels of cholesterol have nothing to do with heart disease. That will be a long time coming because they are so invested in the failed cholesterol/heart disease model and push from Big Pharma to prescribe statins to everyone they can, when we know that inflammation is behind heart disease.
