Dinner: October, 16

Can I just say; yum!

Bulgur and Shrimp Salad:

45g whole grain bulgur

45g shrimps (yes they’re there, somewhere under all the veggies!)

60g shredded zucchini

75g red bell pepper

23g red onion

85g grape tomatoes

Served with a marinade my mother made, white wine vinegar, mustard, a bit of sweetener, garlic

*Bulgur is high in fiber and protein, and low in fat and calories. This type of whole wheat serves to offer bulk and nutritiens to fill you up without adding pound. A thing to keep in mind: one cup of bulgur has fewer calories, less fat and more than twice the fiber of brown rice!

*Shrimps are low in calories and saturated fat and therefore they make a healthier alternative to meat proteins. Shrimps is a very good source of vitamin D. This vitamin regulates the absorption of calicium and phosphorus, which is essential for streng teeth and bones. Furthermore shrimps are also a great source of vitamin B12, which is important for proper brain function and essential for the formation and maturation of blood cells.
