About those fillings: Shrimp are low in calories, rich in protein and high in selenium and vitamin B-12. Meanwhile, mango is juicy and naturally sweet, not to mention it’s packed with fiber and vitamin A. And last but not least, the beloved avocado is high in good-for-you monounsaturated fats, which promote heart health.

At 232 calories and 14 grams fat per spring roll, you can eat more than a couple of these for lunch or dinner and still feel great about your life decisions. And if you’re craving a sweet-and-spicy sauce to dip your spring rolls into, try this one featuring lime, avocado and cilantro.
