Whole30 + Keto + Paleo Chili Lime Shrimp Power Bowls
Protein and veggie bowls have become a new obsession of mine. During the summer, I love quick and easy meals straight off the grill that aren’t too heavy on my stomach. This Chili Lime Shrimp Power Bowl fills me up without making me feel miserable. It is light, flavorful and is the perfect summertime lunch or dinner.
During the summer months I love cooking outside on my grill so I don’t heat my kitchen up with the turning on the stove and oven. I like incorporating grilled seasonal veggies that help brighten up any protein option. There is something so special about veggies straight of the grill, drizzle with some olive oil, season with salt and pepper and you have a great side item to any protein. I love supporting my local Farmer’s Market during the summer and trying all the different veggies that are available. It makes grilling season more fun and delicious.
Adding the grilled sweet mini pepper, red cabbage and zucchini brings this power bowl to life and gives it such pretty color. In addition to the grilled veggies, I throw some large shrimp, covered in lime juice on that grill that pairs nicely with the cooked cauliflower rice. To finish, I cover the entire bowl with my new Chili Lime sauce that is so good you will want to drizzle on all of your meals.
If you are not a shrimp fan, feel free to design your power bowl with whatever protein and veggies you would like. Both chicken and steak go amazing with this chili lime sauce. Get creative and head to your local farmers market and pick out some seasonal veggies that are colorful and get to grilling.
Why are power bowls so good?
I love power bowls because it has just enough protein and veggies along with healthy fats. I love doing this bowl with many different combinations. I always keep my main base the cauliflower rice then I will build it with a variety of different veggies and alternate my proteins. One week I may use chicken the other I may use shrimp, scallops or steak. I always try changing it up so it doesn’t get boring. Also, adding any of my homemade sauces can bring any of these bowls to life. Be sure to check them out here.
