Creamy Shrimp and Spinach Recipe
The best way to stick to a low carb diet while feeding a family that is not eating low carb is to make dinners like this one. This Creamed Spinach and Shrimp can be eaten by itself for low carb – high fat. You can also serve this over pasta for those that are not eating low carb.
This dinner is a fun twist on creamed spinach. Add as much shrimp and spinach as you prefer. I usually double both because I like it full of spinach and shrimp with a light creamy sauce.
