If you're looking for a tasty way to power up on protein and incorporate a healthy serving of omega-3s into your diet, consider delicious, nutritious shrimp.
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans released by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) encourage everyone, including pregnant and breastfeeding women, to eat seafood at least twice each week for heart and brain benefits.
"Studies have shown eating seafood twice a week can reduce the risk for the top cause of death among both women and men—heart disease—by more than 30 per cent," said Jennifer McGuire, MS, RD, National Fisheries Institute.
Shrimp is already the nation's favorite seafood because of its great taste, mild and slightly sweet flavor.
This incredibly versatile protein can be served piping hot or refreshingly cold and incorporated into a variety of cuisines from Mediterranean to Mexican. With a price per pound that rivals cuts of beef, chicken and pork, and at only 83 calories per 3 ounces, shrimp is a smart choice for dishes such as BBQ Shrimp Quesadillas, which are a natural for a weekday dinner on the go or a special occasion celebration.
