Baked Stuffed Calamari Recipe

A staple on many appetizer menus, calamari, which is made by frying sliced or whole squid that’s been breaded, can fit into a balanced and healthful diet. It offers some nutritional value, boosting your intake of minerals and vitamins, as well as macro nutrients needed for energy. However, calamari also contains relatively large amounts of sodium and cholesterol, so you should monitor your portion size and consume it only as an occasional treat. Calamari contains a moderate number of calories — each 6-ounce portion offers 298 calories, which is 15 percent of the daily intake on a 2,000-calorie diet. These calories come from a mix of 30.5 grams of protein, 12.7 grams of fat and 13.2 grams of carbohydrates. Your body uses carbs and fat for energy by converting them to usable fuel to support your cellular metabolism. The protein in calamari nourishes several tissues, including your hair, skin and muscles. Source: Livestrong
