Lazy Man’s Shrimp Pesto

This recipe is one of the easiest Low Carb, Keto or *just* clean eating recipes on the planet.  Lazy Man’s Shrimp Pesto is exactly what it sounds like!  Minimal prep time; and this simple recipe is loaded with high protein, greens and good fats.  You can ultimately make this work for any Macronutrient breakdown.  Bonus: it’s also gluten free!

What’s a “Macro?”  Great question.  Macronutrients are going to be your proteins, fats and carbohydrates.  And the correct combination of Macros, or your “Macro Formula,” is what will make your metabolism thrive.  It’s the correct combination of food that is going to give you energy that lasts all day, not to mention the best weight loss + fat loss results!  Energy and weight loss (or lack thereof) are the areas I’ve personally struggled with most.

This whole “Macro” conversation is where I see my clients struggling the most.  Why?  Because we’re all different.  And even with “Keto,” what we eat daily needs to be customized.  The is one of the main reasons that I see so many women stalling with weight loss.  Hitting weight loss plateaus with no good explanation.  “But I eat clean!”  Unfortunately we can still “eat clean” and not eat in the right combination to really help our metabolism truly THRIVE!

If you’re thinking to yourself, “wait but my metabolism feels SO slow!”  You’re not alone.  I was up against the same thing years ago when I was 65 lbs. overweight and did every diet ON. THE. PLANET.  This is also the exact reason I developed the #UNdiet Fat Loss Formula!

This #UNdiet Fat Loss Formula, which was recently featured on Good Day Sacramento, sets you free from all of the guesswork.  Imagine if you could eat more + weight less.  No more freaking out about what you’re going to eat for your next meal or snack.  Know exactly what’s right for YOUR body!

Want to know more about this very special Macro Formula, or about my own story?  Just scroll past the recipe!  I’m passionate about sharing because if you’re still struggling, I want you to know you’re not alone.  And more importantly, there are answers…

Until then, I do hope you enjoy this super simple, Low Carb, Keto or *just* clean eating recipe.  My clients love these types of recipes as they’re super easy to batch cook or make for a small dinner party.  Spend time with your guests, not slaving in the kitchen!

Lazy Man’s Shrimp Pesto

1-2 lbs. Wild Alaskan Shrimp
1-2 c. Organic Fresh Basil
1/2 c. Lightly Roasted Pine Nuts (roasting is optional; raw works too!)
1 bunch or crown Organic Broccoli
1 tbsp. Organic Garlic Powder
Dash of Paprika
Dash of Sea Salt
Organic Olive Oil
Kerrygold Butter or Ghee

Optional ingredient: Brown Rice


1. Thaw and rinse shrimp.  Remove shells if preferred.
2. Clean and chop Broccoli.
3. Heat 1-2 tbsp (or more if desired) butter or ghee in sauté pan on medium heat.
4. Add Sea Salt, Garlic and Paprika…
5. …then when pan is heated, add shrimp and cover.
6. Sauté Shrimp for 3-4 minutes…
7. …then add Broccoli, lower heat slightly, and cook for 10 minutes.
8. While Shrimp mixture is cooking, clean and chop Basil…
9. Remove Shrimp mixture when finished and add to plate…
10. Top with tons of chopped Basil + Pine Nuts.

Optional: For additional fat, drizzle with Organic Olive Oil!

Serves 2-3 people

Note: if you prefer “roasted” Pine Nuts, place them on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven on 225 for 15-20 minutes.  Pine Nuts roast incredibly quickly due to their small size and high fat content.  Be sure to keep your eye on them while they’re in the oven.  Remove before they get “browned.”  They’ll continue to cook while they’re cooling.
