Dr. Schmidt tips: Shrimp is a great source of protein and vitamin B 12. Quality matters with shrimp, avoid farm raised shrimp as any farm raised seafood is not great for your health. I love cruciferous veggies, for even more a nutrient packed punch try adding raw broccoli!
Health fact: Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable and therefore loaded vitamins and nutrients. Cabbage is full of fiber, B vitamins, Vitamin K, and calcium and magnesium.
Fun fact: According to Whalefacts.org: “shrimp often develop mutually beneficial relationships with sea cucumbers or sea slugs in order to remove any ectoparasites.”
