Calories and Blue Crab Cakes

Saturday, September 17, 2011

Before you start cooking up our delicious blue crab cakes, which are really the best crab cakes,  you might want to consider if you are wanting to be more healthy or not.  Like we had mentioned in a past blog about 3 oz. of blue crab cakes meat (which ours have a little filler added to keep them intact) is equal to about 87 calories.  The way you prepare the blue crab cakes will change the calorie count of them.  So if you are one who is conscious about how many calories you take in that is something to think about.  We know you are super excited about eating the best crab cakes.  But before you get started on cooking the blue crab cakes here is some information on calories that you might not know (or you might know but still love us anyway).

 

  1. A calorie is considered a burst of energy.  Hence you need calories to function in life because they are like fuel for the body (Ready to cook up the best crab cakes to make fuel?).

 

  1. There are 3500 calories in a pound of stored body fat (That would be a lot of blue crab cakes.).

 

  1. With that in mind if you are looking to burn extra calories you would probably need to burn about 3500 calories to loose a pound.  To burn about 500 calories could take about an hour of hard core working out.  Another way to help with calories is eating healthy lighter calorie foods (Did we mention blue crab meat is low in calories and that is what blue crab cakes are made from?).

 

So there you have it, a little “food” for thought on calories.  Now you are ready to really decide on how you are going to cook up the best crab cakes.  Are you thinking healthy or maybe more like comfort food when you make the blue crab cakes.  That is what is fun when it comes to cooking, there are so many options.   Have fun cooking up the best crab cakes.   A quick side note, our blue crab cakes do have a minimum amount of filler to keep the cakes intact so that will change the calorie count from if it was just straight meat.
