SHRIMP AND MANGO TROPICAL SALAD

Shrimp Tropicsl Salad (1)

Is it a salad or a salsa?  Well, that depends on your mood!  I have been craving Mangoes for a while and they are in season right now.  They are fresh, sweet and have a unique flavor.  You can seriously make anything with Mangoes, salads, smoothies, fresh mango water, baby puree, sushi, anything!  It is a very versatile fruit.

Mangoes Health Benefits:

  • Rich in Fiber.
    • Helps with Digestion due to its high fiber content and enzyme properties.
  • Excellent source of Vitamin A, B6, C and E.
  • Excellent source of Potassium.  100 g provides 156 mg of Potassium.
  • Antioxidant properties to help your body get rid of toxins
  • Lowers Cholesterol due to its high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C.
  • Helps with Diabetes by helping normalize insulin levels in blood due to its low glycemic index (41-60).
  • Immune System booster due to its Vitamin C and A content.

– Always consult with your doctor if you have Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol or other medical illness.
