Hi, friends!

As you probably remember, I’m a tad obsessed with rice bowls lately. They’re easy to make, delicious, and totally customizeable, which means I add all sorts of nutritious (and fun!) ingredients to them, so I’m never bored with the same old, same old.

However, now that I’m consuming less meat in my diet, I’m always trying to find new and exciting ways to add protein to my rice bowls. I typically rely on beans, edamame, nuts, and more beans, so I was really happy when Louis Kemp reached out to me about their Louis Kemp Crab Delights® products.

As soon as I checked out the nutritional info on their Crab Delights Flake Style, I knew it would be a perfect (and super easy) addition to my beloved rice bowls. One serving has 70 calories and 6 grams of protein. It’s also high in omega-3s. Awesome.

All of the Crab Delights products (there’s even a Sriracha flavor!) are made with premium wild Alaska pollock. They’re packaged as an easy, ready-to-eat alternative to crabmeat and other shellfish, so I quickly realized that I could turn my favorite salads, sandwiches, and pasta into special seafood dishes. Yay! I loved this new protein option, so it wasn’t long until the Rainbow Rice Bowl was born!

  1. I’m a vegetarian, so I’m always adding beans or tempeh to my dishes for a quick and healthy dose of protein. I voted for your rice dish. Good luck!

  2. My favorite way to add protein to my meals is to throw in a handful of chunked or shredded chicken to anything (salads, bowls, dips, sauces, etc.). I make a bunch in my crock pot at the beginning of the week (by just cooking the chicken in the broth until it’s soft and moist) and then I have it available all week. So easy!

  3. oh man. As pretty as this dish is, I SO object to fake crab!! Growing up in the Pacific Northwest we would go crabbing and eat the fresh crabs that same day. I’m insulted on the behalf of real crabs whenever I see imitation crab meat.

  4. I love imitation crab! I make Crab salad all the time and toast it on an English muffin. A little Mayo, olives, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, dill and a little cheddar cheese. It’s amazing and so filling! Go Crab! Cheese adds a little protein too!

  5. We love to make an easy fried rice with leftover roasted chicken and eggs! Of course I’m a fan of nut butters too! Voted on fb 😀

  6. I voted for your recipe on FB (Amy Masters Leach)
    I like to use turkey Italian sausage to add flavorful protein to meals. I add it to pasta sauce and use it in place of ground beef in lasagna, meatloaf, casseroles.

  7. Can’t wait to try this! Looks so delicious! I used to get extra protein by eating more peanut butter now I am adding quinoa.

  8. I love adding edamame and almonds to salads, as well as hard boiled eggs! I’ve been making the peanut butter balls you posted not too long ago and those have become a go-to snack for both me and my almost 2-year-old!! Thanks!

  9. Do you know if Louis Kemp has any frozen products? My body can’t handle the histamine in hermetically sealed and canned meats. boo! But voted for your recipe and will definitely try it, looks yummy! The soup didn’t look too shabby either!

    Good ole fresh meat is my preferred protein choice! I’m thinking I need to give lentils another try considering all the prior posts….

  10. Looks like your recipe is killing it in the challenge on FB! My favorite way to add protein is to add a hard boiled egg to my salad. Makes it a little creamy so I don’t have to use as much salad dressing plus has 17 grams of protein!

  11. I usually eat “zone” so when I’m desperate to get the right amount of protein, I just go with a string cheese or cottage cheese!

  12. I like to use beans to add protein to my meals. My husband and I cook a batch of dried mixed beans in the rice cooker each week and then we add them to salads, tacos, eggs, etc.

  13. I love adding beans to my meals. Salads, rice bowls, soups, as a side, etc. Since you love Trader Joe’s so much you should try this soup recipe with their ingredients: (recipe from Trader Joe’s originally)
    1 box Latin Style Black Bean Soup
    2 cans of Cuban style black beans(or regular, I just like the spice)
    1 can kidney beans
    1 can garbanzo beans
    1 cup frozen corn

    Heat in pot on stove until warm and serve with dollop of sour cream and handful of chopped cilantro. Can use any bean combo you prefer, I usually use what I have on hand.
    Enjoy!

  14. Voted for your recipe!

    Its sad but I tend to add peanut butter when in need of protein. Not the best option but my work has free PB containers (1 Tbsp serving) and I can’t stop myself sometimes.

  15. In rice bowls, especially, I like to ward a fresh egg — scrambled or over easy. Going to try this recipe as a fried rice dish. Thanks for the flavorful idea!

  16. Good source of protein and omega-3 are nuts. Certainly walnuts are the best. 100g of walnuts provides 9g of omega-3. It meat that we need to eat 16,5g walnuts to cover our daily requirement for omega-3. Isn’t that marvellous?
