Meal-Prep Shrimp Taco Bowls

Insanely delicious spicy taco spiced shrimp bowls loaded with cheese, black beans, corn, brown rice and tomato. Make a week’s worth of lunch in under 30 minutes. Healthy Shrimp Taco Meal Prep Bowls Shrimp tacos on a weekday just happened. Lighter, healthier, and tastier than ever before. Meal prep is getting better and better ever week and I couldn’t think of a better lunch then these spicy flavorful shrimp taco bowls.

These bowls are healthier and nutritionist inside out. Shrimp is considered one of the world’s healthiest foods! Aside from the protein, shrimp are packed with antioxidants, vitamin D, B3, and are also a great low-carb food that can help you lose weight and suppress your appetite.

I like to use brown rice when meal-prepping. It give you a very steady dose of fiber and gives your body a steady controlled energy release to last you throughout the day.

MY LATEST RECIPES

For the sides, I used black beans, corn, cheese and tomatoes. If you want to go the extra step, add chopped salad, sour-cream, salsa or guacamole after re-heating the shrimp.

    preparinG it at the moment; do yiu cook the Beans and corn or is it supposed to be cold till serving

      Layla

      You can cook the beans and corn and meal-prep them then chill in the fridge or you can use them straight from the can into the meal prep containers and heat with the rest of the meal when re-heating.

    Tammy

    This was so good! Will make again for sure!

    Emily

    Hi! I love this recipe. What are the macros for your brown rice? I plan to sub it for cauliFlower rice. Also, my keyboard is doing All caps as well. Im sorry.

    Jennifer Varano

    Do you eat this cold? If so, how is the rice cold ? Or do you warm it up?

      Layla

      You can warm the bowls up in the microwave or eat them cold!

    WITH THE MEAL PREP IDEA, ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO EAT THIS 4 TIMES IN ONE WEEK? THATS THE MAIN REASON I’VE NEVER TRIED IT. I WOULD THINK THE FRESH TOMATOES WOULD BE PRETTY GROSS AFTER FREEZIN

      KetoKitty

      I’m so sorry…I have no idea why this is coming out all caps…my keyboard is on lower case.

    dee

    Althea

    If i use white rice would it last long?

    Melissa

    I do meal prep for 5 days for lunches. Will the shrimp last 5 days in the fridge in those microwave containers?

      Layla

      Yes, it should be fine in the fridge or freezer.

    Viviana

    Sydney

    Made this today and it was delicious !!! Put it over a bed of lettuce instead of rice to cut carbs and it still amazing. The shrimp had such great flavor, I can’t wait to add it into other recipes. Thank you for this !

    I totally dig this recipe, pinned! My kids would love this recipe for lunch, although for them I might sub salad mix for the rice since they can’t heat their lunches up! I love your fun colorful photos!
