I've Got To Be Seen, Green! Evergreen Bowl w/ Honey-Lemon Shrimp & Cilantro Dressing


Food is one of the great pleasures of life. Finding ways to eat healthy, while still maintaining the flavor, is one of our favorite creative endeavors! With summer around the corner, aka bikini and crop top season, one of our go-to lunches is the Evergreen Bowl. 

This filling bowl is light on its own, and full of delicious green vegetables. We like to add beans, pan-fried tofu, or in this case, shrimp, for our protein! The cilantro dressing adds a slightly spicy note to the bowl, but we promise you'll love every bite, hot or cold! 

Finesse Tip: Blanching vegetables is a great way to maintain the color and crunch of a vegetables. We don't know about you, but there is nothing worse than muted, mushy veggies when you are trying to eat healthy!
