Recipe: Low Cal, no Carb Shrimp Stir Fry

As I go through the HCG diet, I have been looking for more ways to pack flavor into my meals. Going off the recipe book I was given, I knew there was no way I could keep on this diet. Boiled chicken just ain't my bag. So, here is the first of my HCG meals.

This recipe is built for a 1 person serving on the HCG diet. This recipe actually gives a full enough serving that I wouldn't alter portions once I am off the diet plan

Ingredients:

3.5 oz Shrimp (about 7 large shrimp)
1 cup shredded cabbage (I use the coleslaw cut pre-bagged to save time)
1 cup diced green bell pepper
1/4 cup diced shallot or onion
2 Cloves diced garlic
1 inch of fresh ginger, grated
1/2 bag Miracle Noodles Rice
1 Egg
Braggs Liquid Aminos
Ground dried lemongrass
Huy Fong Garlic Chili Sauce (Optional)
Diced Scallions (garnish)
1 pinch Salt
Total Calories: 224

1st empty the Miracle Noodles into a colander, rinse thoroughly to remove any smell, pat dry, place in a bowl, and toss with 2 Tablespoons Liquid Aminos. Quarter the shrimp, place in a separate bowl, toss with 1 tablespoon of Liquid Aminos and 1/2 tablespoon lemongrass.

In a wok or large skillet add two tablespoons coconut oil (Or coat with coconut spray). Once heated add shallots, bell pepper, and ginger. Stir fry for about a minute until fragrant. Add cabbage and pinch of salt. Stir fry until cabbage is tender and wilted, about 8 min. Remove mixture to a bowl, and wipe wok dry with paper towel.

Add more oil to wok. Toss in garlic and sauté gently. Add shrimp, cook 2-3 minuets until pink. Set aside in bowl with the veggies.

Crack the egg into the center of the wok, scrambling gently. Toss in the Miracle Noodles, mix thoroughly. Add back in veggies and shrimp. At this time if you are not on the HCG protocol you can add in peas if you wish. If adding Chili sauce, do so now. Season with Liquid Aminos, and heat through.

Serve with diced scallions as garnish (and peanuts if not on diet) and enjoy
