Kale Shrimp Caesar Salad
Bariatric friendly kale salad with familiar flavors of shrimp and caesar dressing
There are so many things to love about shrimp recipes, in my humble opinion.
It’s a lean protein – so it’s filling without the fat content.
It’s super fast to cook – hallelujah.
It’s very adaptable the kind of meal you add it too!
If you’ve had Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass, Duodenal switch…or really any weight loss surgery procedure…shrimp recipes are wonderful thing! I imagine that’s why you are here :)
This recipe is a fast option for a traditional caesar salad without all the extra calories. I tossed bagged kale (ripped up with my clean hands first) with cole slaw mix and parmesan cheese. Then I cooked the shrimp with a simple lemon juice and salt and pepper mixture and added it with light Caesar dressing to the salad.
I loved how fresh tasting it all was!
Some patients do well with salads and some do not…take is slow and listen to your pouch! It’s always a good idea to focus on the shrimp the most anyway, the protein is what fills you up and keeps you full which helps fight snack attacks later!
