Healthy Brown Rice Bowl with Shrimp & Avocado with a delicious sauce – a light and easy dinner that will satisfy and taste great! PLUS a $500 Giveaway for Paypal Cash or Amazon Gift Card!
I’m writing this while I’m watching my new favorite guilty pleasure show: House of Cards on Netflix. Have you seen it? OMG. It’s the best. My husband had been trying to get me to watch it for a month or so and I was digging in my heels because I thought it would be boring. I’m not usually a fan of political shows. But this one? It’s political, sure. But oh so much drama, too. 😉
Another great Netflix show I’m stuck on is The Killing. Have you seen that? It’s a murder mystery series that sucks you right in. I’m not really a TV watcher but when I find a good one (lookin’ at you, Breaking Bad) I just get pulled in and have to watch the entire series ASAP.
What are your favortie shows? I’m also loving the Bachelor…but that’s a whole other post. Ha! 😉
I’m really excited about today because I’m teaming up with a bunch of bloggers to give one lucky reader a $500 Paypal Cash or Amazon Gift Card!
This giveaway is a Birthday celebration for me and few other gal bloggers who started blogging right around now, the beginning of the year. I guess there’s something about a new year that makes people start resolutions, right? I think that’s what nudged me into the right direction to start this little blog. I am so beyond grateful that I started it. I love my YHE blog and YOU! Thank you for reading!
I know brown rice bowls aren’t a Birthday treat (but did you check out my donut post on Friday? THAT is a good Birthday treat!) Anyway, these brown rice bowls are really, really good. Definitely worthy of a Birthday celebration!
I love a healthy meal. I’m always trying to rotate seafood into our dinners. Sometimes I get preoccupied with eating ground beef or chicken that I forget about seafood. Good shrimp or seafood recipes can be intimidating to try, am I right? These brown rice bowls are so simple, though. Definitely not intimidating. The sauce is delicious and the shrimp goes well with the avocado and cilantro. It might not look like a Birthday dinner, but it’s a celebration in your mouth. 🙂
Now go on below and get the recipe for these delish brown rice bowls and then enter to win the $500 Gift Card! Good luck!
- 1/3 cup lite soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
- 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
