This is the type of meal I love to eat when I’m maintaining a healthy diet. These Cilantro Lime Spicy Baked Shrimp are extremely easy to prepare and pack a ton of flavor in each bite!

I followed the Whole30 diet during the month of January (with the exception of a few cheats. . . just a few). On the days that I dedicated the time and effort to meal preparation I did not feel deprived at all. However, on those busy stretches that I did not have time to prep it was brutal and I became used to a growling stomach.

In the end I called it The Inconvenient Diet. It was a lot of work to follow but I will say it has been successful. There is no denying my results. I don’t own a scale but I am down about 2 sizes. I feel so much better! I have officially kicked my crazy sugar cravings, I have more energy and my skin has not looked this good, like, ever. In fact, I’m pretty sure either sugar, dairy or both are terrible for my skin, causing breakouts, wrinkles and ruddiness.

Moving forward I plan to eat more in the Mediterranean Diet style. But, 2-3 days a week I will commit to the Whole30 eating plan. I will fill those days with a few of my favorite recipes like these Spicy Baked Shrimp with Cilantro Lime Dipping Sauce or Lemon Dill Zoodles.

These shrimp are beyond simple to prepare. Just toss shrimp in oil and spices, bake then serve. The Cilantro Dip is blend of fresh cilantro, lime and olive oil.

  1. This shrimp sounds fantastic! I love all of those flavors. Thanks for including my soup in your Whole30 recipes too!

  2. I haven’t ever done Whole 30 but it’s pretty close the way I try to eat. (I do eat cheese though; not sure if I could give up cheese!) I like your moderate approach of doing it some of the time. And this shrimp looks like a dish that will definitely keep you from feeling deprived!

    Thanks for including my Garlic Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken Breast in your collection of Whole 30 ideas;I have made that so often!
