Spaghetti with Shrimp (Gluten Free)

Happy February!

My first non-vegetarian meal of the month is..photo 4

Spaghetti with shrimp! I think the title gave it away..

So for those who have been following in the last month, I have been on veggie challenge for January. I have to say I am quite surprised by how easy it has been and the options have been anything but limited. The main take away I have from this month is that I will definitely be eating less meat during my week as generally my body feels lighter and healthier when most of my diet includes veggies and fruits. So I do not think I am ready to re-introduce meat and chicken just yet, so February will be Fish February 🙂

Another reason this has been a happy February is I have been featured in two amazing magazines! They also happen to be some of favorite magazines, Good and Gourmet by Ahlan

Gourmet featured my Quinoa Stuffed Peppers: https://zaatarandquinoa.com/2014/01/03/quinoa-stuffed-peppers/
