Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients in this Valentine’s breakfast in bed avocado shrimp wrap.

Avocados:
As the main ingredient in this heart health avocado smoothie, they are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, and other healthy fats that are great for the heart. Avocados are also packed with antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory properties.

Eggs:
Eggs are an amazing source of protein and one of breakfast’s healthiest and most delicious staples. Make sure they are organic, pasture-raised, and cage-free.

Limes:
New research shows that limes may have potent heart health benefits. The study showed that lime juice slowed down the process of plaque buildup on artery walls.

Olive oil:
This oil has been recognized for many years as a healthy oil, full of important health benefits, healthy fats, and for good reason. It is full of healthy fats, provides anti-inflammatory benefits, and has shown benefits in the area of cancer prevention.

Shrimp:
Like fish, shrimp are also great sources of protein. They are also high in important nutrients like selenium, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and choline.

Tomatoes:
They are excellent foods for our heart health mostly due to lycopene, which is what gives tomatoes their red color. The lycopene helps protect the fats in our bloodstream from being damaged by oxygen. Tomatoes are also packed with vitamin E and C, which are believed to be great for overall heart health.
