We know that many people have switched to the ‘no red meat’ diets and we want to help you with some tasty meals that fit into this healthy lifestyle of yours! Change can be hard but we want to help make this transition easier for you so that you can stick with it for the long run! If you’re not enjoying what you’re eating- you won’t be able to keep up with it.
Shrimp with Broccoli & Cauliflower
From personal experience, this recipe is delicious! When cooking with shrimp, it’s important to remember to keep the cook times in mind. Some shrimp comes pre-cooked so the cook times will vary if you’re getting that. It doesn’t matter either way what you get, but you definitely don’t want to end up with under/over cooked shrimp!
What You Need:
-1 pound of shrimp (peeled & deveined is easiest)
-2 tbsp of olive oil
-2 minced garlic cloves
-1 tsp Italian Seasoning (you can use more if you’d like!)
-Salt to taste
-Black Pepper to taste
-6 cups chopped cauliflower
-6 cups chopped broccoli
-3 tbsp Parmesan cheese
-2 tbsp fresh parsley
-2 tbsp toasted pine nuts
How To Make:
1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and layer a large sheet pan with foil and then spray it.
2. Rinse off and dry your shrimp and put into a bowl. Add 2 tsp of olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix all ingredients.
3. Dice up the broccoli and cauliflower until bite sized pieces and toss in the remaining olive oil. Add salt and pepper for taste and toss together. For those who like Italian seasoning a lot, sprinkle some in here and toss.
4. Lay the veggies onto your prepared tray roast for 10 minutes. Take them out and flip/toss and then roast for an additional 10 minutes.
5. Take the veggies out and add your shrimp to the tray, spread out among the veggies. Put back in the oven and cook for another 8 or so minutes until cooked. If you got precooked shrimp, they will only need a few minutes to heat up.
6. Once removed from the oven, toss with Parmesan cheese, parsley, pine nuts, and lemon juice.

Fish/Shrimp Lettuce Wraps
These are hands down one of my favorite healthy meals! There are so many different variations to these so you can never really get tired of them (okay maybe eventually). It's nice because you can switch between fish or shrimp so it doesn't get too boring! We are going to give you the basic idea for these but then you can determine how to finish them!
What You Need:
-1 lb fish or shrimp
-1 head of Boston lettuce
-Salt & Pepper
-1/2 cucumber cut into small strips
-1 carrot cut into small strips
-Thai Chili Sauce
-2 cloves of garlic, cilantro, 1 tsp. chili powder, 2 tsp. cumin, & 1 Lime
How to Make:
1 .Preheat a pan on medium-high.
-If doing the add on with garlic and lime you will want to combine all ingredients in a bowl with the fish/shrimp and marinate for about 10 minutes. Otherwise toss shrimp with salt and pepper.
2. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan and then add shrimp to the pan. Rotate the fish/shrimp until fully cooked.
3. Cut your cucumber, carrot, and avocado and place into your lettuce wraps.
4. Place about 4 oz of fish or shrimp into the wraps.
-If you’re adding any of the sauces, you can add it now to the wraps.
For this recipe, you can really get creative with how you marinate your fish or shrimp and what types of sauces you add. These are just a few ideas with sauces that you can easily buy pre-made!
