Stir-Fry Shrimp and Vegetables

Wednesday, March 7, 2012
We made a delicious and pretty simple dinner last night. The stir-fry with the rice (note it is brown rice) is 379 calories. The pineapple adds another 74 calories. The total calorie count for the meal is 453. It is on page 103 of CookingLight Low-Fat Low-Calorie quick and easy cookbook...a long-standing favorite. I couldn't find this exact recipe on the internet but there are certainly other choices out there. What I like about this recipe is that there is a minimal amount of prep time, it is uncomplicated, it uses a bag of stir-fry frozen vegetables (always a handy thing to have available) and is not too spicy while still being flavorful. Adding fresh pineapple we find rounds out the meal nicely. I usually buy my pineapple several days before the meal so it has time to continue to ripen. The pineapple last night was sweet and juicy. Another hit for the family!

If you would like to have this particular stir-fry recipe, let me know and I will post it.
