Cook Time –10 minutes
Servings – 1
1 bag of Trader Joes’ Shrimp Stir Fry (if you don’t have a Trader Joes near you, you’ll need raw shrimp, broccoli, peppers, watercress, onions, and sugar snap peas. You can of course customize this to your liking, veggies are all fair game.)
1 tbsp. curry powder — a strong antioxidant that fights cancer, disease, aging, and inflammation
1. Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray (PAM) and turn the stove to high heat.
2. Dump the Trader Joes Shrimp Stir Fry into the pan. Throw away the included seasoning packet — it’s all sodium, and quite frankly, it tastes pretty horrible. If you don’t have access to a Trader Joes, you can customize your own version with raw shrimp, broccoli, peppers, watercress, onions, and sugar snap peas.
3. Add 1 tbsp. of curry powder, and a few shakes of salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly. Continue to stir until cooked through.
4. Once the shrimp turns white (after about 5 minutes) add 2 tbsp of PB2 powdered peanut butter. Stir until the powder becomes creamy and thoroughly coats the shrimp and veggies.
5. Remove from the pan and allow to cool for 3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of Fiber One – Enjoy!
