With the warmer weather finally here, it’s a great time to get back to lighter meals and exercise. I’m pretty sure the long, cold winter made me want to stay in, stock up on food and just hibernate. So, I’m ready to enjoy this time of year!
Eating better doesn’t have to mean sacrificing good food and taste. There are so many low-fat, low-sugar type meals that are good for you AND will satisfy. This yummy Low Calorie Garlic Shrimp with Blistered Tomatoes and Linguine fromeMeals is one of those recipes!
Garlic Shrimp with Blistered Tomatoes got the highest mark in the eMeals test kitchen, and it comes together in just 15 minutes. Broiling the tomatoes brings out their natural sweetness to make a rich, buttery sauce for the shrimp. So yummy!
