Healthy Lunch: Shrimp Avocado Boat

Yum



"Help me lose weight!"

... is probably one of the most common phrases you hear in January. I walked into the gym two weeks ago, and could barely find a free locker.

And traffic for my clean eating and weight loss websites? Shooting off the roof!

While I'm happy everyone's asking for weight loss help, and has health and fitness on their minds...

I must stress that weight loss--and especially doing it through a clean eating diet--isn't a traditional process that deprives of certain food groups and cutting calories. Instead, proper weight loss (through clean eating diet) requires daily eat clean habits and exercise--and continuing both for a life time.


A clean eating diet, despite its ability to help with weight loss, is not a diet but a life style change.

And hence this little website's purpose to provide free daily clean eating and weight loss meal plans, with easy and healthy meal ideas, as well as constant reminders that aid in your weight loss journey.

One of the improvements I'd like to make to the Clean Eating and Meal Plan site, in 2015, is to add more healthy weight loss recipes.

Meal plans are good; links to other sites are great. However, I also feel that providing healthy recipes right here adds variety and therefore improves visitors' overall experience.

Without further a due, here's today's Healthy Lunch Recipe--Shrimp Avocado Boat.

I served this to family and friends during Christmas, and everyone loved it. I think you'll like it too, especially if you're an avocado-lover.




Healthy Lunch: Shrimp Avocado Boat

Ingredients:

- 11/2 to 2 cups of cooked shrimp, diced
- 1 table spoon of fresh organic chives, diced
- 1 Haas avocado
- 2 leaves of basil, broken into small pieces
- 1/2 table spoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 dash of sea salt
- 1 dash of fresh ground black pepper
- 1 tea spoon of organic balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup of organ cream cheese
- 1/2 cup of nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tea spoons of dry dill

Directions:

1. Cut avocado into two halves, and take out core. Lay on plate and set aside.
2. Heat frying pan on high. Add olive oil.
3. When olive oil heats up, add chives and shrimp. Stir for 30 seconds.
4. Add sea salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Stir and cook for about 1 min.
5. Turn off heat. Transfer cooked shrimp into a bowl. Set aside.
6. In a mixing bowl, add cream cheese, yogurt and dill. Mix well.
7. Add cooked shrimp into the mixing bowl. Mix again.
8. Scoop mixture evenly into each avocado halve (or boat).
9. Top with broken basil leaves.

Serve and enjoy!




I think I'll make this healthy lunch again tomorrow.

Just looking at the Shrimp Avocado Boats makes me drool. Hope you like it too.
