💚WHY Healthy?💚

Shrimp is known as a food with high cholesterol, so many people may think that it is better to avoid eating it. Today I would like to introduce you to shrimp cholesterol! 

First, there are two types of cholesterol. According to Mayo Clinic, LDL, called bad cholesterol, can eventually build up in the walls of blood vessels and narrow passages. On the other hand, HDL, called good cholesterol, picks up excess cholesterol in your blood and takes it back to your liver where it's broken down and removed from your body. Shrimp is high in the latter, HDL, and Mayo Clinic also says when it comes to HDL cholesterol, higher numbers are better. 

In addition, shrimp is quite low in calories but full of nutrition, including what isn't abundant in many other foods, such as iodine. The article of healthline.com says that shrimp is one of the best food sources of iodine, an important mineral that many people are deficient in. Iodine is required for proper thyroid function and brain health.  

Although we need to be careful not to overeat, please enjoy shrimps with this recipe!
