PB2 Thai Peanut Sauce and Shrimp

Catholics all over the world abstain from eating meat on Fridays (and Ash Wednesday) for all of Lent. Something so simple stresses me out EVERY year!! I know…just order Pizza, right?? Yes, yes we do eat a lot of Pizza, but we also really enjoy fish too.

Today, like every first Friday in Lent, I forgot the no meat thing and needed a lunch. I remembered my brain was working a few weeks ago when I bought some frozen shrimp to use during Lent (thank you Trader Joes!). So I found (and of course changed a bit) the yummiest shrimp recipe. Trust me, incorporate this recipe into your lent menu!! PB2 Thai Peanut Shrimp over Salad!!!🍤⤵️

PB2 Thai Peanut Sauce

2 Tbs PB2 (or any powdered peanut butter)
2 Tbs Soy Sauce
1 Tbs Water
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Ground Pepper
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (more or less depending on spice preference)
2 tsp Stevia
1/2 tsp Sesame oil
2 tsp olive oil

*Additional ingredients:

-1 pound of Shrimp
-Himalayan Pink Salt
-Salad of choice (mixed greens, spinach, kale, etc.)

Mix all ingredients for sauce together in a bowl.

Cook Shrimp however you choose. I took a little bit of extra virgin olive oil and cooked in a deep pan over a medium flame. Once the shrimps were just about cooked I threw in the Peanut Sauce and lowered heat. I mixed shrimps and sauce for a a couple of minutes to warm sauce and cover shrimps.

Put desired amount shrimps on salad. I used warmed Peanut Sauce as dressing over salad. Sprinkle with some Himalayan Pink Salt and ENJOY!

Hummus Chicken

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/af7/71684035/files/2014/12/img_0309.png
I eat a lot of chicken….I mean a lot. I’m trying to get creative, but I find myself eating grilled chicken many nights. So I started researching some easy and healthy chicken recipes that my family could enjoy. I came across another Beachbody coach’s blog and she had a yummy recipe for hummus chicken. Let me say, it was delicious as well as super easy to make!

WARNING: If you don’t like hummus, you WON’T like this recipe. 😜

Ingredients:

4 boneless skinnless chicken breast
salt and pepper
1 cup of hummus (any flavor…I used plain but plan on using a roasted pepper hummus)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp paprika
Salt and Pepper
*optional 2 lemons

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees and prep one large baking dish with a little bit of olive oil (you can use cooking spray, but I try to stay away from those).

Step 1: Put chicken breast on the baking dish and spread hummus over the top of the chicken.
Optional: squeeze the juice of the lemons on top.

Step 2: Sprinkle with paprika and some salt and pepper.

Step 3: Bake for 25-30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

I roasted some sweet potatoes for a healthy carb.
