Shrimp is a great source of protein, but also includes a healthy dose selenium, which has been increased with improved heart health. Snow peas, in the meantime, are a great source of anti-oxidants, and provide anti-inflammatory benefits. As if that wasn’t enough, the fiber content in peas is pretty impressive, and they boast a healthy amount of omega 3 content to boot! Pairing these foods with bean sprouts also gives you a great dose of vitamin C, exactly what you need to keep your cells strong and growing!
