Salad of the day

Today’s salad recipe is a grilled shrimp and corn salad. What is healthy about this salad? Everything! But I’ll focus on shrimp’s healthy attributes today. Shrimp is anything but small when it comes to nutrient density. Shrimp qualifies as an excellent source of selenium and unusually low-fat, low-calorie protein–a four-ounce serving of shrimp supplies 23.7 grams of protein (that’s 47.4% of the daily value for protein) for a mere 112 calories and less than a gram of fat. Shrimp are also a very good source of vitamin D and vitamin B12.
