In the kitchen…..

in Nutrition by Coach Amanda

In the summer I just lose my appetite...unless it's cold...like ice cream!
I know, regardless of what I'm craving, it is important to refuel your body.
I was looking for some cooking inspiration and came across this simple dish from Paleomg.com

Shrimp and guacamole...light. Refreshing. Cool.
Check it out!

Ingredients
For the shrimp
1 pound raw peeled and deveined shrimp
2 tablespoon olive oil (or other fat)
½ tablespoon garlic powder
salt, to taste
For the avocado mash
2 avocados, mashed
1 tablespoon hot sauce of choice (I used Frank’s Red Hot Sauce)
juice of 1 lime
juice of ½ a lemon
1 garlic clove, minced
½ small red onion, minced
handful of cilantro, roughly chopped (about ½ cup)
lots of salt
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with foil for easy clean up. Place shrimp on baking sheet, toss shrimp in olive oil then lay flat on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and garlic powder. Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes or until pink with a little browning color to them.
While shrimp bake, mix together all ingredients for avocado mash.
Eat shrimp with avocado mash. Boom. Summer is served
