rice bowl recipe & my workout schedule

I just made this rice bowl, and I'm excited to share the simple recipe!


Adapted from this shrimp and avocado rice bowl recipe from Fitness Magazine. Not only does it contain many of my favorite foods, but it's considered a flat belly dinner. YES!

Shrimp-and-Avocado Rice Bowl 
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Makes: 4 servings 
Ingredients 
16 medium cleaned, shelled, tail-on shrimp (about 3/4 pound), thawed if frozen
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
Small pinch cayenne pepper
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 cup shelled edamame, steamed
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
1 1/4 cups short-grain brown rice, cooked according to package directions
1 ripe avocado, sliced 
Directions 
1. Preheat the broiler. In a medium ovenproof pan, toss the shrimp with 1 teaspoon each of the sesame oil and the honey. Add the cayenne.
2. Lay the shrimp flat. Broil for 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
3. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the remaining teaspoon of sesame oil. Pour in the eggs. Cook undisturbed until set, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until just set on the second side, 1 more minute. Transfer to a board and cut into strips.
4. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce and rice wine vinegar with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon honey.
5. Fold the edamame and sesame seeds into the rice. Serve the rice in bowls topped with the egg strips, shrimp, and avocado. Place the soy-vinegar mixture in a small bowl and use at the table for drizzling.

My changes:
  • I loosely halved the recipe and saved the other half for later. 
  • My oven is temperamental, so I cooked the shrimp on a skillet.
  • I forgot to use rice wine vinegar and honey for the rice! Oops...
  • Omitted soy-vinegar mixture.

I also had some Tazo calm tea on the side :)

I've also figured out my workout schedule for the summer! 
Mon - pilates
Tue - cycle
Wed - abs & pilates
Thur - abs, buns and thighs
Fri - power vinyasa yoga
Sat/Sun - bike trail ~or~ weight lifting

I hope you try this recipe! Looking forward to making it again in the future.
