HAPPY FRIDAY YA'LL!  We made it :)  I'm super happy the weekend is here so I'm going to delight you with not one, but TWO of my favs.  Ok, first one... so yesterday for my mid-day snack I did a little planning.  I knew I wanted to try this, but I also knew it would require a little prep time. After lunch yesterday I decided to make my mid-day snack so that it would be ready around 4pm which is usually when my mid-day hunger pains start.  Usually my mid-day snack is a Shakeology and this time I wanted to "shake" things up a bit so I mixed my cup of skim milk, one scoop of Chocolate Shakeology and 1 tbsp of crunchy natural peanutbutter in a blender.  Once thoroughly blended I poured it into a bowl and popped that baby in the freezer.  So about 4pm I go get my choco-concoction out of the freezer and frozen it was!  I chopped up some apple slices and perfectly placed them in the pudding-like mixture and TADA!  Choco-Apple Nutter Delight! It was soooooo delicious, a great snack and totally healthly!  I packed the punch of all my daily nutrients in this dessert-like masterpiece :)  Will definitely be doing this one again very soon!

Now, on to dinner..... This is one of my favorite dinners, it's called Spicy Shrimp and Bok Choy Stir-Fry, a South Beach classic.  See cliff's notes recipe below:

What you'll need:
1 1/2 lb large shrimp, peeled & deveined
4 scallions, white & green parts sliced and separate
2 garlic cloves
2 tsp of veg. oil
2 lbs bok choy (or romaine lettuce will work)
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce (I use hot sauce and sprinkle in the powered garlic)

In a large bowl combine shrimp, scallion whites and garlic.
In a wok or large pan, heat oil and add shrimp mixture, and cook through, about 3-4 minutes, then transfer to a large mixing bowl.
Add bok choy or lettuce to wok, medium/high heat, cover and stir occasionally for 3-4 minutes, or until crisp/tender.  Add to large bowl with shrimp mixture.
Add soy sauce and chili garlic sauce to pan, stir to combine and bring to a boil.  Add shrimp mixture and toss until coated.  Stir in scallion greens and serve warm!  I added a small sided salad to my meal and also a serving of quinoa that I topped with my yummy stir fry.  So so good!  Have a great weekend everyone, I know I will :)


Mmm! Love the 'ice cream' idea! Def planning to do that. :)
