What’s good for you:

v Shrimp is an excellent source of selenium, which is believed to help with cancer protection. Shrimp is an unusually low-fat, low-calorie protein; it is also a very good source of vitamins D and B12. Though it has a high cholesterol content, it raises good cholesterol (HDL) levels more than the bad cholesterol (LDL) levels.

v Coconut milk contains oils that have been found to be very powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal agents. The milk contains no cholesterol, and is low in sodium and high in manganese. Most importantly, research shows that the saturated fat content is made up of medium-chain fatty acids, which means they do not have a negative effect on cholesterol and help to protect against heart disease.

v Coriander aids in digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties, and contains phytonutrients that are protective against cancer; it is a good source of iron, magnesium, and manganese.
