Today I’m sharing a recipe from my brand new cookbook, The Everything Diet Macro Cookbook! By the way, you can snag a FREE Everything Macro Companion Guide when you preorder my new book. This comprehensive, 150-page macro bundle will help you implement the recipes in the cookbook and lose weight while never cutting out the foods you love.
Growing up, I ate the typical TV dinner diet (mac and cheese, Ramen noodles, etc). Meals were thrown together quickly, and nutrition certainly did not matter. I’m still horrified we ate food out of microwaved plastic – eek! But that was the 80s and that’s how people ate – my family included.
It’s funny, this way of eating has stuck with me in a sense, except nowadays I’m much more health conscious. I am always looking for shortcuts in the kitchen (hello, air fryer obsession!) and ways to speed up getting food on the table!
This Shrimp Chili Lime Taco Salad is the ultimate lazy summer dinner when I don’t want to cook; it’s quick to whip up and an easy way to get in quality protein (28 grams per servings in fact!). Not only that, but it’s light, fresh, and bursting with spicy chili lime flavor.
Shrimp is a versatile and quick-cooking protein source, so it’s an easy way to increase your intake without adding a lot of fat to your daily macro goals. Marinate the shrimp the night before for a stronger flavor.
