Simple Shrimp and Spinach

A lot of your ask me about quick, simple, and healthy dinners.  So when I come up with a good one I can’t wait to share it with all of you!

I find that seafood (shrimp especially) is a great go-to for Brian and I because it is:

  1. Tasty
  2. Cooks very quickly
  3. A lean source of protein (having protein at a meal makes us feel more full and satisfied for longer!)

That being said, the star of this dish is shrimp and honestly…I don’t think a meal could get easier!
