“A Fit, Healthy Body—that is the best fashion statement” –Jess C Scot

UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Deputy Director-General Maria Helena Semedo called the 2020 “International Year of Plant Health” a key initiative highlighting the importance of plant health to enhance food security, protect the environment and biodiversity, and boost economic development. 

Reasons why crawfish are good for you:

Crazy-low calories: Ounce for ounce, boiled crawfish tails have nearly half the calories of roasted, skinless chicken breast.

A not-so-guilty pleasure: Not only are they low in calories, they’re also low in carbs and high in protein. And although they’re high in cholesterol (a 6-ounce serving of tails has 232 milligrams), saturated and trans fats actually have more of an impact on our cholesterol levels and crawfish tails have less than one gram of total fat and zero saturated fat.

Surprisingly nutrient-rich: A 6-ounce serving of crawfish tails (about what you get from three pounds, unpeeled) provides nearly a day’s worth of vitamin B12 and more than 80 percent of our daily requirement for the antioxidant selenium.

In addition to the environmental benefits, consuming less meat has been proven to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes, helps to curb obesity, and improves the nutritional quality of your diet. Since 2003, Meatless Monday has become a global movement.

Pizza Hut used to be the biggest purchaser of kale in the US, until the kale craze took off in 2012.
