INSTRUCTIONS //

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
  2. Roll out a sheet of parchment paper large enough to cover your pan. This will end up making the clean up process a non-issue.
  3. Place all of your veggies on top of the parchment paper. Drizzle your greens in avocado oil and a hint of turmeric. Top with your desired amount of spices.
  4. Place your baking sheet of veggies in the oven and set the timer for 18-20 minutes.
  5. If your shrimp are frozen, place them in a colander in the sink and run cold water over them for about 5 minutes. Pat dry with a paper towel and set aside.
  6. When the oven timer gets down to about 8 minutes it’s time to add in your protein.
  7. Quickly remove your veggie tray from the oven. Add the thawed shrimp on top of your bed of greens, drizzle with coconut aminos and add another small splash of avocado oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  8. Add your baking sheet back into the oven for the remaining 6-8 minutes. Continue baking until the shrimp have turned pink and appear to be fully cooked through.
  9. Remove your shrimp and veggies from the oven and let the tray cool down a bit.
  10. You’re all done! Enjoy your healthy-fat and protein packed veggie bowl immediately or let it all cool a little longer and place in tupperware + refrigerate for any meal prep needs.
