Making this Spicy Shrimp Avocado Salad recipe has never been more satisfying because I knew what the end result will be and I just couldn’t wait to dive in. It was so filling and tasty.

Is Shrimp good for weight loss

Shrimp is considered good for weight loss because they are high in protein and low in calories. An ounce of shrimp, which is about 4 large shrimps has about 6g of protein with 30 calories and very minimal fat. Shrimps are also a good source of vitamin D, selenium and energy-boosting B vitamins.

Can I eat shrimp if I have high cholesterol

For the longest time, I heard my family members with high cholesterol issues mention how they cant eat shrimps or eat too many shrimps. There is a large misconception about this idea. It was thought that consuming shrimps will increase levels of LDL which is also known as bad cholesterol. It has now been proven that this is not the case and that shrimps actually increases the levels of HDL which is the “good cholesterol” which in turn is good for supporting heart health! Yay. The more reason to make my Shrimp Avocado Salad Recipe? Just kidding. Not really kidding.
