I am declaring this month, Skinny January.
Are you on a diet? It seems like nearly everyone wants to lose some weight in January. Maybe it’s from the seemingly endless Christmas goodies?? Who can say
If you are among those wanting to shed a few extra pounds, or if you just want some mouth watering recipes that wont weigh you down – you are in the right place!
This pasta is unreal. My whole family devoured it in no time flat. It takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish and if you make the pasta ahead of time and buy precooked shrimp you can be eating dinner in less than 10 minutes.
Not only is this meal low in calories, but it is high in nutritional value! Use whole wheat or whole grain pasta for extra fiber – you really can’t taste much difference and it’s much better for you.
I hope you give this a try and enjoy it as much as we do! Come back often throughout the month for more skinny recipes and keep up with the latest from Back For Seconds via:
