AHHHHH..... Summer break is upon us and after a bit of a crazy spring I am back to the blog :) This past winter/spring I have not only been attending to my cooking and educating duties but I have also been on the track to a healthier self. So far on my journey I am down 50+ pounds and almost 60 inches! I have found that with my success that others have found inspiration in my story and I have chosen to help others in their journey to health. :) 

So far my "summer" here in Iowa has seem A LOT of rain and this gal wants to hotness and sunshine!!! To keep me in the summery mood I decided to make something filling and yet lighter for lunch. I have always been a seafood fan and just love the ease of using shrimp. It is fast, tasty and easy!!!


1 pkg frozen shrimp (mine was deveined, shelled and tail-off.... not precooked)
1 can beans, rinsed and drained (I used light red as it was what I had on hand)
1 cup frozen corn
1 can Rotel, juice drained
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon dried onion (no fresh on hand)
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
Juice of one lime
4 Radishes, chopped
pepper to taste

In a large skillet saute frozen shrimp with dried onions, lime, garlic powder and pepper. Once shrimp start to turn pink add in beans, corn and Rotel. When everything is heated through and the shrimp are fully cooked stir in cilantro. Garnish with radishes for a nice, fresh crunch :)  Enjoy!

It is honestly that easy to enjoy a healthy, quick tasty meal!! This easily makes enough for four and comes in at 270 calories and 3 grams of fat per serving!
