Shrimp Tacos

Hello all!! My husband and I are back on the weightloss wagon. He is down 10lbs and I am down almost 5, I have lost an entire 1.5 inch off my waist!

We are mainly focusing on our diet, “abs are made in the kitchen” and I am doing some strength training at least 5 days a week.

We are doing a low carb, not a no carb diet. We have had A LOT of salmon and broccoli these last 4 weeks! So I have been looking for something new to try and I found…. SHRIMP TACOS!!!

In total this meal is less than 350 calories

You get 4 of these bad boys!

So I started with a large bag of raw shrimp

I took this picture in the freezer… cloudy

I made homemade taco seasoning with salt, pepper, chili powder, paprika, cumin, onion powder and garlic powder. For a kick we added this habanero lime seasoning

It’s got a bite!

I diced up half a head of green and purple cabbage and I covered them in fresh lime juice. It was a salsa of sorts. For the sauce my husband mixed up mayo and sriracha. We only had miracle whip, I would not recommend it… it tasted weird and watery; but spicy!

You get 4 of these!!

Now just piece them together! Some salsa, 4 shrimp and sauce on each tortilla. It is a delicious, easy and filling meal.

I hope you like the recipe! Do you have any that you love???

Food Prep

I made a total of 11 meals…and it took about 3 hours to get everything done

I was recently at a meal prep party… let that sink in… a meal prep PARTY.

Basically you pay $120 and someone else shops for you and then you come together with other people and bag the food in freezer bags (these are meals for the crockpot).

I was actually pretty excited about the idea because life has been hectic and not having to think about dinner is actually a HUGE relief. These meals were supposed to be 4 servings each. They were not, most of the bags really only had about 2 servings in them.

So I decided to do host my own meal prep party… meaning I plan the meals, go food shopping, prep the fresh ingredients and fill the bags myself by myself (which is my favorite part).

I hit Pinterest hard and created a list of meals and of items that I needed to buy

I broke the ingredients down into sections and did my shopping with my bum wrist and littlest man. I think I spent less than $100 on everything, so then it was onto the next step.

My partner and I were chopping and bagging different things

I made a total of 11 meals that will feed at least 3 people and it took about 3 hours to get everything done, but I did have to take a break to put the baby down for a nap and I made a meatloaf for my son to eat over the week.

I will say if you want to do something like this and want/need advice I would love to direct you. Also, there are plenty of canned and prepackaged items in these meals so I wasn’t necessarily prepping for health, just convenience.

There were a lot of cans, your trash will look like this.
