Fitness is a way of life.
This blog chronicles my journey towards competing in my first bikini/fitness competition. Additionally, I will post Motivational Mondays, Workout Wednesdays and Fitness Fact Fridays; as well as articles, stories, and recipes.
The simplest actions are of the greatest benefit.
Tasty Tuesdays: Spicy Shrimp + Brown Rice Stew
So I posted a picture of my dinner from last week and I got several requests for the recipe. As most of you know, I am new in the kitchen since I have started training, so I do not claim to be a chef by any means. I only know what I like and make attempts to serve myself a healthy creation.
Due to this fact, I am also not one to have an actual recipe, I just go with the flow and make enough for my husband and me... so please excuse the lack of correct measurements.
Make to your liking. I hope you enjoy my Spicy Shrimp & Rice Stew!
2 Bullion Cubes (Chicken)
2 Cups of Water
1. Make the broth by simply boiling the 2 cups of water and dropping in the the two bullion cubes (one cube for each cup of water used)
1/2 teaspoon of Crushed Red Pepper
1/2 teaspoon of Black Pepper
1 lb of Shrimp
1. Season the shrimp with the pepper blend. Sauté the shrimp in a skillet with vegetables of your choice. I used:
Half of a Red Bell Pepper (diced)
1 Serrano Pepper (sliced)
1 Can of Spicy Diced Tomatoes
1 cup of Dice Onions
Mix all ingredients from the shrimp mixture into the chicken broth. Simmer and serve over brown rice.
