5. Once shrimp is done, turn off heat. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the shrimp and stir.
6. Add the shrimp inside the 3 hard taco shells. Add 10g of Mango Peach Salsa (purchased from Sam's Club, I've seen similar salsas at Walmart and Foodlion) and 10g of sour cream to each one. For less calories, you can use fat free sour cream.

If you're looking for a high protein low calorie meal, this may be it! I prefer eating my meals versus drinking a protein shake. This waffle is very macro friendly and easy to make. Here's what you need:
40g Whey protein (unflavored or vanilla )
12g Sugar free & Fat free cheesecake jello mix
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 Whole egg
1-2 tbsp Water
Sugar free syrup
Start by turning on your waffle maker so it can heat up. Take all dry ingredients and mix together in a bowl. Add in vanilla extract, egg, then stir in water until you have a batter consistency. Coat your waffle make with non-stick spray and pour in the batter. Cook until waffle is done. Top waffle with strawberries and sugar free syrup. I like lots of strawberries so I use about 100 to 150g and then pour over 45g of sugar free syrup.

I LOVE eating pasta, but all the calories in the creamy sauces can really add up. I decided to make my own creamy, thick, cheesy sauce that was macro friendly. It was so good, I had to share!
Here's what you need:
4 oz. fat free cream cheese
1/2 cup skim milk
15 g butter
5 g grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1/8 tsp pepper
Heat up cream cheese and butter in sauce pan on low to medium for approximately 3-5 minutes. Stir in skim milk and continue to heat until sauce is warm. Add Parmesan and other seasonings. Stir/whisk sauce until well blended.
