There are many more types of seafood than just fish that can be good for us. Prawns in particular are a very lean source of protein, as well as a source of omega-3s, iron, iodine, zinc and B vitamins.

The dif­fer­ent colours of each veg­etable indi­cate a dif­fer­ent spec­trum of health-pro­mot­ing com­pounds know as phy­to­chem­i­cals. Con­sum­ing plen­ty of veg­eta­bles each day and achiev­ing a good vari­ety is an impor­tant part of long-term heart health.
