It makes a great family dinner or one to impress your friends on the weekends. Packed with Superfoods; spinach, avocado, chia seeds, garlic and pistachios it is a gluten free choice as well.
The shrimp would make for a great appetizer on its own and the salad would be a great side.
I am the youngest of four children, my closest sibling my brother, is 11 years older than me. No, I wasn’t a mistake, but I was a tag along. Having two brothers and a sister that were so much older than me, made me one tough little girl. I wanted to be a boy so bad, I would do everything to be faster, stronger and tough enough so I could impress my cooler older brothers. I told my husband the story the other day about how when I was six years old I would practice running across our one acre lot to the neighbors tree line. Then as soon as my brother got home from work, I would challenge him to a race. He never let me win. Which you might think was mean, but it taught me to keep trying. As I went through school, I played every sport I could. Softball, Volleyball, Basketball, Track and Tennis. I loved them all and playing sports definitely shaped me into the person that I am today. I learned to practice to achieve my goals and to be competitive as a team player not an individual, traits that you use through every aspect of your life personal and professional to find success and happiness. So this post is a shout out to my two rotten brothers who never let me win unless I deserved it.
