Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings — 1

 

Main Benefits:

 

Ingredients —
  • 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.)
  • 1/4 cup of Fiber One
  • 2 tbsp PB2 original
  • Cooking spray
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp. curry powder — a strong antioxidant that fights cancer, disease, aging, and inflammation

 

Directions —

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! leanitup, lean it up

    I have to cook for a family of four and would love to make this.  Can you send me a recalculated recipe. Sounds delicious.

    •  @OTAUNIA This recipe serves one for a rather large meal. Depending on how much your family eats, multiply everything by 3-4 to adequately feed everyone.
       
      Hope you like it, it’s delicious and ridiculously healthy!
