  • Low Carb Shrimp & Grits Recipe Meal Prep

    Growing up one of my favorite foods, and still today, is shrimp & grits or fried fish and grits.

    If you’re not familiar with grain bowls, these are arguably one of my favorite meals! A friend used to call them “man bowls” because she said it’s typically of how we like to eat our food – put everything into a bowl and mix it up.  Pretty much! But, it’s actually more than that –

If you’ve never had tamarind before, you’ll thank me later for introducing you to it.  Tamarind is pretty much nature’s “sweet & sour candy.”  It’s part of the legume family but with a much more interesting flavor profile. At first “bite” it is very sour, like a piece of
