Tasty & Easy 30 Min Cauliflower Shrimp Bowl

As some of you know, Payton is pretty deep into the Keto diet so making meals that we both want to eat can be a bit of a struggle. I love rice, hash browns, bread and lets face it….CARBS.

I have been using cauliflower rice in multiple ways to make meals that work for us. And in the summer, I am not a big fan of heavy meals or meals that take a long time to make (ok, time is a factor no matter the season). I wanted to do an all in one type of meal that was quick and easy, so I thought, why not throw shrimp and cauliflower rice together? It came out so amazing and delicious! Absolutely on the top of my summer go to list!

I used foods that I had sitting around the house which made it even easier. I am not a huge fan of any extra grocery store trips than actually needed! Thank goodness for a deep freezer, right?

What all did I use/have laying around? 
  • Large pre cooked shrimp
  • Frozen diced cauliflower
  • Tomatoes
  • Onion
  • Lime
  • Avocado
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Butter
  • Olive Oil
  • Small Jalapeno
Cooking it was pretty simple! I got out 2 medium skillets and a cutting board and got to work. I put a tablespoon of olive oil in each pan and put the shrimp and riced cauliflower in frozen. I cooked everything and prepared the pico. Once everything was done, I threw it all in the bowl and enjoyed! AND Payton and Kenz loved it as much as I did!

Published by Not Ur Average Mom Of 5

Most importantly, I am a mother of 5. I don't have your typical happily ever after family. I am divorced (one of those nasty messy ones), I have way too many bills (don't we all) and I really don't have any interesting hobbies (wasn't always that way, I grew up riding horses) I am in a relationship with the love of my life and my happily ever after. He is the most amazing and loving person I have ever met. Payton deals with my crazy life and family and embraces is with so much love and support. He is the BEST dad and father figure I know). He is an Engineer for our local fire department and that is HARD. I honestly am so proud of him and so proud of what he does BUT I HATE his job, I hate nights away and I hate the time it takes from our family. People don't realize how difficult it is. At the end of the day, I am so thankful for him and our life together, I can't wait to spend forever with him. My kids....they are terrorists. Seriously. I grew up as an only girl out of 4 total kids. I always wanted 4 kids - 2 girls and 2 boys. Well, the big man upstairs had other plans! I am bless with one daughter and four sons. My daughter is the oldest. Makenzee Adele is 11, going on 18. She is smart and hardworking and LOVES school. Caleb is next. He is 9 and so loving. He works really hard in school and loves baseball. Next is Connor. He is 7 and very advanced in school. He hates doing any school work and has the silliest personality and can light up a room. Connor plans to play professional football for the Arizona Cardinals when he grows up. Moving forward is Keegan. I had the worst pregnancy with him. I had Hyperemisis Gravidum and was on home IV and Zofran for the majority of the pregnancy. He was born healthy and is 4 and a wonderful boy who causes more trouble than necessary (he was recently diagnosed with Autism and ADHD). Lastly is Rhett. He is the baby and loves getting treated like he is. He was born April 5 (I am seriously not changing the months constantly) and LOVES cuddles possibly more than his dad. So that is a bit about me and my family! Subscribe to my blog to read more about my WILD ride!!
