I'm not sure about you, but when I am in one of my "I'm going to eat healthier" kicks, the main reason I stop being really good about it is that I run out of healthy dinner options. The five healthy "got to" dinners get old real quick. But I am determined to stay on the right track this time....for good! So I am branching out and finding some really good, really healthy meals.
I got this recipe out of the Lean and Green cook book from Medifast.
Shane loves shrimp more than I do. I prefer it deep fat fried. I prefer everything to be deep fat fried. Or at the very least, covered in a cream sauce. But I was surprised how much I liked this. Shane LOVED it. It makes 3 servings so guess who gets the leftovers :)
The spice blend was awesome! I use to flavor and cook everything with butter. But I have slowly been learning over the last few years to use spices instead of adding unnecessary fat.
I didn't taste the lime at all so I added a little more. I quite liked the "noodles" which surprised me since I am such a pasta girl. They were so long! Next time I am going to try and cut them or something. But I guess it is a personal preference kind of thing.
I didn't have fresh tomatoes on hand so I used canned. It was fine but I think fresh would taste better.
This is definitely a meal we will be making again!
