Meal prep dinner #2 coming at you. This bad boy goes from the bag into a hot skillet and is done so quick. It took me a few extra minutes since I made some Homemade Quinoa Tortillas to go along with it, but you could just as easily make some cauliflower rice or quinoa to go along with it...or just enjoy as is. I don't know who said healthy eating doesn't taste good, because it totally can. This meal is great for anyone following the Paleo or Keto diet, and even simply leaving out the meat and shrimp makes it vegan. So, it's versatile and yummy too.
This meal can be prepped the week before and placed in a gallon freezer bag (I always make sure to put any meat in a separate smaller freezer bag within the big one just to be safe.) If I'm prepping for a skillet meal, I often just chop veggies and marinade the meat in whatever seasonings I plan to use.
