This shrimp banh mi recipe is a regular item on my weekly summer menu. It’s high in protein, low in calories, and all around delicious! If you have never made a banh mi before, don’t be turned off by the scary-sounding name. I promise that this will be a quick and easy dinner! In fact, since the shrimp cook so quickly, most of the work involves chopping the vegetables. But, let’s back up a second. What’s a banh mi? It’s a Vietnamese-style sandwich that is served up on French baguettes. Originally, the sandwich was nothing more than chicken liver pate and pickled vegetables. Over the years, people have branched out, and today this sandwich is made with all kinds of toppings. It’s pretty popular to make banh mi with sausage, beef, pork, or chicken. My personal favorite, though, involves seafood.

Of course, while quinoa is now a staple ingredient in tons of different meals from breakfast to dessert, many of us Day-1 quinoa fans first fell in love with the grain as a rice substitute. Whether it’s a side or a main ingredient, a zesty rice is an important part of any Mexican meal. As usual, quinoa is an excellent substitute for your favorite spicy rice mixes. I’ve started whipping up an easy and tasty batch of this Mexican quinoa with every meal that would usually send me reaching for a box of pre-packaged Spanish rice.

Move over potato chips – there’s a new snack in town! Vending machine chips had a good run, but they’re filled with saturated fat and other unpronounceable ingredients. Even though I know they’re bad for me, I still reach for those processed chips all too often. They seemed to be the only thing that satisfies my urge for a crispy, crunchy snack. Luckily, we figured out a way for you to have your cake and eat it, too. These oven baked zucchini chips are low in fat and calories, and they’re best described with one, simple word: yummy. There’s a good reason that zucchini is one of our favorite vegetables. It grows in abundance in the summertime and it’s super easy to cook with. You can eat it raw as zoodles, sauté it as a stir-fry, slice it and toss it on the grill, or roast it in the oven. It’s full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. In fact, did you know that dark green zucchini boasts high levels of beta-carotene? That helps boost your immune system and promote healthy vision, too.
