My favorite meal is any meal that doesn’t require a lot of effort to make or dirty dishes to clean up afterwards. So I guess you could say this Asparagus Shrimp Stir-Fry is probably my all-time favorite meal. Aside from the oil to cook it in, it’s got only five ingredients and is ready in about fifteen minutes from start to finish. Never mind that it’s a delicious autoimmune protocol-friendly dish! Now, I’ve had a somewhat rocky relationship with shrimp in the past, but this simple lemon-garlic sauce perfectly masks or complements its flavor depending on how you feel about it. Add a couple handfuls of spinach or diced sweet potato if you want to make this a complete meal on its own, or serve it up with an easy side like cauliflower rice or mashed sweet potatoes! It’s also tasty with a garnish of bacon if you don’t mind cooking up some of that first (it’s okay, you can use the same pan).
Looking for high-quality meat?
The great nutrition conundrum of our times is how to make a healthy diet sustainable, not just for us and our families, but for future generations. It’s no secret that factory farming has been disastrous for the environment, never mind the welfare of us or our food. So I try to prioritize ethically-harvested, sustainably-raised, grass-fed or pastured proteins. US Wellness Meats not only fits the bill, but they also have a huge variety of other products: Seafood, game meats, jerky, bone broth, sausage, tallow, pork rinds… there’s a lot to love. Free shipping combined with bi-weekly deals from their newsletter can make them more affordable than your local supermarket for meat that’s antibiotic-free, humanely-raised, and really, really good.
