Meal Prep in a flash: Healthy Options for Grilled Garlic Shrimp & Vegetable Fried Rice
If you love fried rice but were always afraid it would ruin your diet, fear not my friends. Trader Joe’s makes a really great pre-made frozen version for when you are in a pinch or need to whip up some vegetable fried rice in a hurry!
1 cup of this rice is 200 calories (compared to take out places is not bad at all)
I then grabbed some recently thawed out raw shrimp and cooked them until pink in a skillet with extra virgin olive oil and garlic. Put those two together and voila, a very quick meal with protein and not too high in calories!
I do a lot of my shopping lately at Trader Joe’s since the prices are good and the produce is always fresh. They offer some great organic products and healthy brands that I usually can’t find in my local Shop Rite or Stop & Shop.
