Shrimply the Best Avocado Grain Bowl
This bowl has the perfect combo of protein, healthy fat, and carbs! It's also very filling; as a lunch or dinner option, you will stay full for hours! What makes it delicious is the seasoning! Be sure not to cook the shrimp for too long, a few minutes on each side is enough to cook it all the way through but still be juicy! Your shrimp will be done when the flesh changes from grey/translucent to white with hints of pink. Enjoy!
