Opt For White Meat…..

Overall, white meats have less amount of undesirable fat and are, in fact, easier to prepare. So, you have no excuse not to go for the healthy option. If you’re going for chicken, remove the skin. In contrast, fish can be a good source of nutrients which are good for the heart.

Leftover Stew…..

When you make a stew or soup, refrigerate leftovers and skim off the fat with a spoon before reheating and serving. Thicken sauces with evaporated fat-free milk instead of whole milk.

The Right Measuring Cup…..


Make sure to use a liquid measuring cup for all your liquid ingredients and dry measuring cups for all your dry ingredients. A liquid measuring cup does not allow you to fill and sweep your dry ingredients correctly. This introduces too much of the dry ingredient to the recipe. If that dry ingredient happens to be coconut flour, even a tablespoon extra is too much and will significantly impact the final moisture level.

Conversely, the dry measuring cups are exacting to the very brim but make it difficult to fill to the top without spilling. This usually leads to lower liquid ingredients being introduced to the recipe.

Super Quick Low-Carb Shrimp Scampi
This low-calorie and low-carb shrimp scampi feels like a restaurant dish, but it is actually very easy to make. There is just enough buttery sauce to coat the shrimp. The trick is to not over-reduce the sauce when cooking it. It’s better to make it a little more saucy then dry. If you want to bulk up this entrée, you could add peas or thinly sliced carrots, or serve it over your favorite low-carb pasta substitute like spaghetti squash……

Grilled Blackened Shrimp Tacos
Give juicy shrimp tacos a Cajun flavor spin with spices and a quick sear on a hot grill. An easy avocado mash adds creaminess to cool off the spicy kick……

Sheet-Pan Chicken and Shrimp
This Creole-inspired variation of a shrimp boil can be made in the oven on just one baking sheet. A medley of spices gives this healthy dish of chicken, sausage and veggies a rich, complex flavor. Bonus: This easy sheet-pan dinner requires just 20 minutes of active prep time……

What should you look for when buying shrimp…..

Avoid shrimp that smell like ammonia (an easy way to tell that they’re bad) or have shells that feel soft or slimy (again, not a good sign). If you can’t be sure, or know they’ve been thawed, head to the freezer. The frozen shrimp will taste better, cook better, and feel better.
