Black Bean Shrimp Salad
You’re trying to get on track, stay on track, or just find the track. Wherever you are in your health journey we have the recipe for your success:
Planning is truly the key to making progress on your health goals. Without a plan, you’ll be caught hungry with nothing but vending machine food, a drive-thru, or those greasy grilled cheeses from the cafeteria. If you think through through your week ahead of time, you’ll be in control. This Black Bean and Shrimp Salad is planning at its best. Simple, tasty, and oh-so-convenient for a work week lunch.
In addition to planning, you need to make wise food choices. Choices that will fill you up. No plain iceburge lettuce here. Instead, think of eating a balanced meal with whole grains, produce, protein, healthy fats, and low fat dairy. Sound complicated? You’re overthinking it. This Black Bean and Shrimp Salad has plenty of protein from the beans and shrimp and good fats from the lime vinaigrette. If you throw it over some greens, you’ll also be getting an extra dose of veggies. Round out your meal with some whole grain bread and low fat milk, yogurt, or cheese. That wasn’t so bad, was it? You’ll be so full of goodness when you are done eating, you might not even notice those stale doughnuts in the breakroom that were calling your name all morning.
Ah. Success is sweet. Scratch that. Success is zesty.
The Zesty One.
