Lemon Vegetable Rice with Shrimp - 37.9g Carbs, 4.

Gloria Gabrysch


Most of what I throw together I do so with a bit of this and a bit of that sometimes just clearing out the fridge or using what I have on hand. With the attractiveness of the vegetables when cooking one knows it will be healthy and the lemon just brings it all together. Grilled chicken could be used for those who prefer not to use shrimp. I only use brown rice since it is so much more beneficial nutritionally. This was so well received it will be a regular here!
