WHY SHRIMP IS GREAT FOR WEIGHT WATCHERS
Shrimp is a great food for Weight Watchers. Shrimp is very low in calories. One medium shrimp is only around 7 calories.
I can eat a lot of shrimp and rack up very few calories.
Shrimp are packed with protein. Three ounces of cooked shrimp has about 20 grams of protein.
There are also a lot of nutrients packed in these little shrimp. They have vitamin B12, phosphorus, choline, copper, and iodine. Shrimp is also a good source of antioxidants.
I personally love how versatile shrimp can be and how many different easy ways there are to prepare them.
