When it comes to making a quick and healthy meal, stir fried vegetables and shrimp top my list.
I used to relegate this particular shellfish to special occasions. I thought it was too expensive to put in my cart, but that wasn’t true.
Our local grocery store, and Costco sell affordable (and sustainable) shrimps, and when I toss them into a pan with colorful veggies, I don’t need quite as many per person. This definitely makes them pocketbook and calorie friendly.
My shrimps shared the pan with kale, mandarin oranges, an easy Asian orange sauce, and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds. But if you prefer a Greek theme for your meal, you might like this Greek Inspired Summer Squash Sauté just as well.
Either way, you’ll be eating a healthy and affordable meal.
Shake It Up!
No shrimp in the house? Try chunks of cod, or chicken. Pork would be great too. No kale? Spinach works, but take care not to over cook, or you'll have a slimy mess.
