Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Raise your hand if during the Superbowl, you ate enough chips and guacamole to service a Mexican restaurant all by yourself!!! Meeeee….

OMG. Like I need a guac detox… and I am sure I will have a very rough 5:30 am Monday morning workout after all of that indulging. So, in an attempt to get the week off in the right direction, I am sharing with you one of my easiest, fastest and favorite weeknight meals, that feels appropriate for a Monday (because it is SO easy and fast) and this is what I am making tonight for my family!

So I’ll stop babbling and  let me share this delicious Gingery Sesame Shrimp Stir Fry. I love it with a bowl of Crispy Ginger Rice or even just steamed jasmine rice. But the great thing about this recipe is that even if you opt to not eat it with rice (Paleo/Whole30) or you could do cauliflower rice! it is still so satisfying and super full of flavor. PLUS you can prep and cook the whole thing in 10-15 minutes. CRAZY!!!
