Clean & Healthy Grilled Chicken and Shrimp Kabobs
This meal is clean, healthy and quick! Sometimes a simple meal turns out to be the best meal.
When buying shrimp always look for wild-caught vs. farm raised. Wild-caught shrimp are the healthiest shrimp to eat because they are caught in their natural environment.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions about how your food was raised if it’s not clear upfront.
Even if shrimp isn’t always in the family budget, it’s nice to have these crustaceans on the dinner table occasionally. Shrimp is very healthy and contains selenium, calcium, iodine and protein; much needed nutrients in our diets.
Save money by adding chicken and shrimp to these tasty kabobs! It’s nice to mix things up for a change, but adding shrimp to your weekly menu can be a little pricey if you have a large family. That’s why we love these easy kabobs because they have both shrimp and chicken to cut down on the cost.
