Low Carb Lunch Recipe: Spicy Shrimp Quinoa
Hi friends, welcome to another episode on Beauty Box TV this Thursday! I thought it would be fun to do a cooking vlog since I love making food. I’m also an incurable carboholic but I try to limit my carb intake, because let’s face it — eating too much just makes it all go to your waistline.
To satisfy my need for grains, I always turn to quinoa (or millet) but the great thing is that it’s not a carb, it’s a seed! It’s full of fat and protein. Though having said that, you should not overeat quinoa either because it’s highly caloric. I know this is a bit ironic that I’m eating something high in fat/protein to prevent myself from consuming too many carb calories — but here me out, it satisfies you like a carb but it feels lighter on your digestion and you don’t need a huge amount to feel satiated.
1/2 white onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves
2 cups vegetable stock
1 zucchini, chopped
3 small tomatoes, diced
2 cups quinoa (increases in volume when cooked; 4 cups cooked)
2 cups shrimp
1 tbs smoked paprika powder
1/2 tsp cayenne powder
2 tsp curry powder
