What I Ate Wednesday – Honey Walnut Shrimp

Happy Wednesday friends! I hope you enjoyed your holiday with family! I definitely enjoyed Christmas dinner but am more than ready to move on from all of the the turkey and ham. If you’re ready to ring in the New Year with something light, fresh and fast. Keep reading! Try this lightened version of Honey Walnut Shrimp for dinner!

But first, let’t take a quick peek at some of my favorite eats from last week!

Breakfast

blueberry-waffle

Quinoa Pumpkin waffles drizzled with Walden’s Farm blueberry syrup. This combination always delivers a crispy and flavorful waffle!

Morning Snack

White Chocolate Cookie Carb Killa  has a generous white chocolate coating that tastes like a Milky Way bar with crunchy chocolate cookie crispy bits. Definitely a great bar with solid macros: 215 cal, 15 g carb, 22 g protein 8 g fat with 6 g fiber. This and the Caramel Chaos are my two favorites!

Lunch

Repeat offender! This was definitely one of my more eclectic lunches! Trader Joe’s Egg White Salad on a sandwich thin. What’s a meal without dessert? The Quest Lab’s Cravings 2.0 Peanut Butter cups are too die for!

 

Skip the takeout and try this Honey Walnut Shrimp for dinner!

So much better than take out, this is one of the best shrimp recipes that you will make! You are seriously going to love every single bite! Enjoy the recipe!

Why choose when you can have both! Our neighbor brought over cheesecake for our wine and cheese party! My favorite was the chocolate even though the strawberry was pretty amazing too!

  1. LOVE your healthy takeout recipe! Honey & walnuts = divine flavor combination for sweet or savory, for sure. Your meals, the cheesecakes, and the protein bar snack (still haven’t tried that brand) look awesome, as always. Plans for NYE = watching the Times Square ball drop on my home theater projector screen with my folks and dog. It’s like being there in person with the giant screen, without the grossness of being in Times Square in person on New Year’s Eeve (did that one year – will NEVER do that again. Ugh, yuck. Gimme my family & warm, germ-free home, HAHAHA 😀 ). Can you believe 2017 is almost here?!?!?!

    • Happy Wednesday Liz! Thank you!! This has always been a favorite dish of mine that has traditionally been fried in oil. Definitely check out Grenade Bars, you can actually order single ones on Muscle and Strength- which is where I ordered mine from. I plan to have a quiet NYE as well; home with some seafood and in my pj’s! xo
