Pritikin Cinco de Mayo Ceviche
The Pritikin Eating Plan recommends and incorporates the healthiest animal food choices — omega-3-rich fish such as salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, and trout. Most other fish, plus shelled mollusks like clams and scallops, are healthy choices, too. With Cinco de Mayo coming up, its customary to serve our favorite Latin American dishes. Unfortunately, the most popular dishes can include cheesy, fatty appetizers, often high in fat. Enjoy this fresh shrimp dish instead!.
