    After the shrimp are cleaned, get a skillet, and spray it with pam. Pop some minute rice in the microwave. Take the shimp put them in a baggie, and add some cajun seasoning. Shake well. Once the skillet is hot, throw in shrimp let them fry for about a minute. Then throw in some butter and fresh garlic. If you want, after the shrimp are cooked...(do not over cook!) (3-4 minutes tops) Then throw some mushrooms, thin sliced zucchinni and green onions, cilantro and peppers. Sautee for a few minutes.

    Take rice, sprinkle with saffron, or a bit of cumin and pepper, throw veggies, put shrimp on top, take juice and drizzle. Garnish. Serve with a light beverage, follow with frozen strawberries, or key lime pie.

    Don't kid yourself - seafood is high in natural sugar, and is no healthier for you than meat. The only exception would be oily fish (such as herring, mackerel or salmon) which, providing it's wild, is full of useful Omega 3 oils. You need to loosen up a little and eat more different kinds of things. Unless you have a religious objection to chicken and pork, in which case, too bad. How about an omelette? Healthy and delicious. It has been established that the cholesterol in eggs does not enter the human bloodstream and clog up the arteries, so any worries you have about cholesterol can go out the window. Eggs are cheap (although you should get free range organic ones if possible) and if you grate a little good cheese into the omelette, or add a handful of chopped fresh herbs such as flat leaf parsley, chervil, coriander (cilantro to Yanks), thyme leaf and/or sage, you have a fabulously tasty, high-protein, low-carb meal. It also takes about four minutes to cook a three-egg omelette, so it's quick. Why do you eat beef but not chicken or pork? Chicken's better for you and pork is more interesting. I personally like beef, but I don't eat it very often.

    FRIED SHRIMP AND ONION RINGS

    1/3 cup flour

    1/3 cup Martha White's Buttermilk Cornbread Mix

    1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    1/2 teaspoon paprika

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1/2 teaspoon sugar

    1/4 teaspoon each garlic and onion powder

    seltzer water, enough to make medium thin batter

    Shell-on Shrimp to fry

    oil for deep frying

    Heat oil to 365 degrees. After oil comes up to appoximately the correct temperature, test it by frying one shrimp. One shrimp should take about 2-3 minutes to be golden brown. Adjust heat accordingly.

    Prepare batter by stirring all the dry ingredients together until mixed well. Add the seltzer water in a thin stream in the center, mixing with a whisk to avoid lumps. Stir until smooth but do not overbeat. The batter should be similar in consistency to pancake batter.

    If you have a tendency to make tough tempura, use cake flour instead of all-purpose flour.

    Dip the shrimp in the batter, drain for 10 seconds and drop in hot oil. Remove when golden brown, season to taste, drain on paper towels, and serve with cocktail sauce or tartar sauce for dipping.

    You can use this same batter to make great onion rings with vidalia onions sliced 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle with onion powder before they cool.

    If you can't find the Corn Meal Mix at your store, substitute fine corn meal (1/3 cup), 2 tablespoons of dry buttermilk powder, and a half teaspoon baking powder and continue to use the other ingredients listed above.

    If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here https://bitly.im/aMCoQ

    The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true
