Over the last few weeks I have been trying very hard to eat gluten free. I am hoping it helps with some inflammatory issues I am having but it is a real struggle for me to not starve to death. Honestly, I have a serious love affair with grains…whether it is cereal, toast, pasta or Cheetos I just hear those carbs calling to me from my pantry. I have had to change the way I eat rather drastically but so far so good. Last week I made my Shrimp Fajita Omelette which was delicious and this week I decided to stay with the fajita theme and make a rice bowl with the same sort of ingredients. I picked up some fresh cilantro from the grocery store since mine in the garden did not survive the last freezer. I topped it with a bit of store bought queso because…well, everything tastes better with cheese on it! Hopefully you like this Shrimp Fajita Rice Bowl recipe and remember that you CAN make dinner in less than 15 minutes with whole, fresh ingredients! Check out the linky at the bottom of the post for a few more quick dinner ideas.
*NOTE: For fast weeknight meals, make up rice on the weekend and store in the fridge. Also, keeping precooked, frozen shrimp already peeled in the freezer makes for a quick protein source that takes only minutes to thaw!
