Spicy Shrimp n Cabbage (featuring VitaminSpice)

by on Apr.28, 2010, under Fish and Seafood, Recipes, Supplementation

This dish has an unbelievable full flavor. It is high in protein and very low carb for a main course meal….which means this can be included on even the strictest of diets.

As prepared, each serving has under 15 grams of carbohydrates.  Feel free to add to the basic recipe with pea pods or water chestnuts or turn up the heat with more red pepper flakes.  Serve over brown or whole grain jasmine rice, if not on a carb restricted meal plan.  And it is stir fry, which means from pan to table in under 15 minutes!

  • 1 small/med head cabbage shredded

VITAMIN SPICE Asian Beef & Jasmine Rice

by on Jan.31, 2010, under High Protein dishes, Recipes

Jasmine rice has a soft texture that is not as crunchy or chewy as other brown rices, but equally as nutritious.

Jasmine is a naturally aromatic long grain rice originally grown only in Thailand. While cooking, this exotic rice fills your kitchen with a delicate scent. The aroma and flavor are natural, nothing is added to the rice. The grains cook up moist and tender with a light, soft texture, and delicious flavor.
