Shrimp and Squash Skillet 30 Minute Meal Recipe

The perfect weeknight meal for your busy life is here! This Shrimp and Squash Skillet 30 Minute Meal is a great balanced meal, quick to make and made with easy to find ingredients. We are all about creating balanced meals that are nourishing. It’s the key element in keeping a balanced diet and staying full until your next meal. Making sure to have good quality protein, carbs from vegetables and good healthy fat will be a great way to fuel your body for optimal performance so you can feel your best.  

A quick to make dinner you ask? We’ve got you covered there! I am all about making quick dinners. Here at my house getting dinner on the table at 6pm can be challenging. Even though I love to be in the kitchen making meals, sometimes life can be a little full and bustling and finding that full hour to make a homemade meal just isn’t an option. So I turn to my quick 30-minute meals like this brand new Shrimp and Squash Skillet and my Creamy Chicken and Brussels Sprouts Skillet. You’ll have an amazing dinner on the table in just 30 minutes!

We all love a recipe that hosts easy to find ingredients, right? Keeping to whole foods, it will be easy to find all the ingredients at your local grocery store. Right now for me living in a small town, I have one local grocery store. I am able to find almost everything I need for recipes at that grocery store or else I have to drive about 45 minutes away to a bigger store. Whether you’re keeping to a Whole30, Paleo, Keto, or just clean eating, finding whole foods is really easy and they’re readily available in all grocery stores. This Shrimp and Squash Skillet 30 Minute Meal has just 6 ingredients and they’re all easily found at any grocery store. So grab this recipe and get ready for a super easy dinner that everyone is going to love!
