Holiday Shrimp Cocktail

Great Appetizer for the Holidays that Friends and Family will love!

Don't let the cholesterol in shrimp fool you. When it comes to heart health, saturated fat is more important than cholesterol - and shrimp is very low in saturated fat. Shrimp is a source of good fat - in the form of omega-3's which helps to reduce triglyceride levels and lower the risk of a heart attack. Although eating shrimp too frequently could slightly raise LDL cholesterol levels, it also increases levels of HDL - the good cholesterol which improves the ratio of good cholesterol to bad cholesterol which is a positive for heart health. The omega-3's found in shrimp also have anti-inflammatory effects which are not only good for the heart, but may reduce the symptoms of diseases such as arthritis.

Health Benefits of Shrimp Cocktail: its Waistline Friendly- Shrimp is remarkably low in calories - with four large shrimp having only twenty-two total. Plus, the protein content of shrimp (almost eighteen grams in four of them) is great for building lean body mass when combined with an exercise program. Foods that are high in protein such as shrimp are also more satisfying - so there's less risk of overeating. Shrimp is clean eating at its best.
