This week shrimp were on sale at my local market so I decided to stock up. Normally during pure protein days or the Attack Phase I love to have shrimp around to eat plain since they are low in calories and high in protein. However during Vegetable and Protein Days, this is probably my favorite way to eat shrimp. I usually serve mine up with some cauliflower rice or wrapped in lettuce or cabbage.
