Nutritional values

Here you can get useful nutrients in a mega-pack: unsaturated fatty acids from avocados are good for cholesterol levels and the brain; vitamin C from lemons boosts the immune system and the iodine from shrimps supports the thyroid gland. The couscous ensures satiation and a portion of fibre.

If you prefer vegetarian food: Leave out the prawns and take a whole avocado. But then the amount of fat and calories will increase slightly!
