Shrimp and Grits



  • 3 cups almond milk
  • 1 cup water
  • pink salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked quick cooking grits
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 pound peeled deveined large shrimp
  • 1 cup sliced onions
  • 2 cups of grape tomatoes cut in half
  • 2 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup green onion strips

1. Combine milk, water, salt, and pepper in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer; gradually add grits, stirring constantly with a whisk. Reduce heat to medium; cook 4 minutes or until thick, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in Parmesan cheese.

2. While grits cook, cook shrimp in olive oil in pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until pink. Remove shrimp from pan. Add white onion to pan; sauté 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, salt, and black pepper; sauté 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add shrimp, pepper sauce, and red pepper; cook 1 minute or until shrimp are heated.

Homemade Italian Dressing




  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 4 tbs. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp organic honey
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp pink salt
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic

Put all ingredients into a mason jar, salad shaker or any container. I actually used an empty Starbucks frappucino bottle the first time, as long as it has a tight fitting lid. Shake for about 30 seconds. Dressing will last in fridge for up to 2 weeks.

TIP: Make sure none of your children have had access to salt prior to making or there is a STRONG chance that you will end up with half a bottle of salt in your dressing and you’ll have to start over…..entirely….even if you’re late for work. ENJOY!
