I shared this recipe a few weeks ago when I meal prepped it for one of my meals for the week, but I want to share it again because it’s that’s good! It’s completely inspired by @FitGirlMoves version that she shared on one her vlogs as a recipe to eat during cut. Anyways, this recipe turned not only is great for a macro-friendly meal when you’re low on carbs for the day, but also perfect for humid, hot summer days which Minnesota seems to not be able to get rid of. Turning the stove or oven during the heat of summer is a little counter productive with what your AC is trying to do. The best option is to not turn it on at all and still to salads, in my opinion.

what you’ll need
- 85g shrimp, frozen, fully cooked, tail-off
- 85g cauliflower crumbles
- 85g broccoli slaw
- red bell pepper, chopped
- 1T. soy sauce
- 1T. sesame ginger salad dressing
Thaw the shrimp either overnight in the fridge or at room temperature for about two hours. Microwave the cauliflower crumbles for about three minutes to make it more a rice texture. While the cauliflower is warming up, weigh and measure the rest of the ingredients and set aside. When the cauliflower is done you can add some seasoning if you like – this is totally optional. Put the cauliflower into a medium serving bowl, and on top add the broccoli slaw, red bell pepper, and shrimp. For dressing I used soy sauce and a little of sesame ginger salad dressing.
Calories and macros on this meal: 115 calories, 14g carbs, 22g protein, 2g fat. The first time I made this I used only the soy sauce, but I really feel like the sesame ginger dressing adds a little something more. I used the Newman’s Own Sesame Ginger dressing which was lower in calories and fat compared to most other salad dressings I’ve bought in the past.
Try this recipe out if you like salads with a good crunch! It’s a nice change from the usual green spinach salads – gotta mix it up. Thanks to Fit Girls Moves for the idea. Thanks for reading!
