Week of Healthy Meal Prep: April 8-12
Monday: 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 (we recommend spaghetti squash).
Tuesday: Penne With Asparagus, Pistachios, and Mint
Sauté the white parts of the green onions first to mellow their onion flavor. Stir the green parts in last for freshness.
Wednesday: Curried Chicken Thighs With Pomegranate-Mint Sauce
Talk about a company-worthy meal without much effort or a hefty price tag. Serve this easy and elegant entrée with a side of rice to round out your meal.
Thursday: Fresh Tomato, Sausage, and Pecorino Pasta
Ripe, late-summer tomatoes are juicy and delicious in this entrée, with no seeding or peeling necessary.
Friday: Seared Halibut Fish Tacos With Cilantro Slaw
Halibut—a tender, sweet-tasting whitefish—is a great option for fish tacos, especially when paired with crunchy slaw, zippy pico de gallo, and a salty cheese. We promise you’ll want these more often than just on Taco Tuesdays. Serve them with a side of black beans or yellow rice to round out your meal.
Treat Yourself: Sparkling Rosemary-Peach Cocktails
A heady punch of woodsy rosemary creates an herbaceous riff on the classic Bellini.
