Meal Prep: My Go-To At Home Lunch Recipe

Meal Prep: My Go-To At Home Lunch Recipe
The 3 Musts: Easy, Healthy, Yummy!

I shared a picture of My Go-To At-Home Lunch a few weeks back on my Instagram stories, and I had several of you message me requesting a blog post recipe for easy reference! I started making it at the beginning of quarantine, and now it’s my lunch meal 5/5 work days every week. It hits all the must-haves: it’s easy (and inexpensive) to make, it’s healthy, and it’s SO good! It also covers all your major macronutrients: protein (shrimp/egg), carbohydrate (rice), and healthy fat (egg/avocado). It’s packed with flavor and can also be tweaked to your liking based on your preferred choice of protein/toppings!

MY GO-TO LUNCH SHRIMP & RICE BOWLS

Meal Prep: My Go-To At Home Lunch Recipe
Again, always remember that you can trade out the shrimp for any choice of protein (ground turkey, chicken, steak, fish, etc.)! The calorie/macro count is reliant on what ingredients you choose to use, however, for the purpose of this post I’m using the following ingredients: 65g Shrimp, 50g Jasmine Rice, 1 Egg, 5g White Onion, 25g Avocado.
Prep Time: <5 minutes || Cook Time: 5 minutes || Total Time: <10 minutes || Servings: 1

Calories (per serving): 290 Calories || Protein: 23 grams || Fat: 11 grams || Carbs: 24 grams

THE INGREDIENTS

Meal Prep: My Go-To At Home Lunch Recipe
  • 8-10 Cooked Shrimps (remove tail before cooking)
  • Seasoning(s) of Choice (I use Black Pepper, Garlic Powder, & Cayenne)
  • Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice – Jasmine (this is the BEST rice – it’s kind of sticky and sushi-like)
  • 1 Egg
  • White Onion (diced)
  • 1 Avocado
  • Optional Toppings: Sriracha or Chili Garlic Sauce for spice!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Spray a small pan with PAM, and place on stove-top over medium-high heat.
  2. Season shrimp with seasonings of choice.
  3. Add seasoned shrimp + diced onion to pan. Cook until browned.
  4. While shrimp/onion is cooking, “cook” rice in microwave. This type of rice takes 90 seconds.
  5. When shrimp/onion is about 60 seconds from being done, move the mixture to one side of the pan and add your egg to the other side. Lightly scramble egg with a fork.
  6. Add preferred serving of rice to a bowl.
  7. Once shrimp/onion/egg are all cooked through, pour mixture over rice.
  8. Add avocado chunks + optional toppings.
  9. ENJOY!

Bon Appétit!
