Spicy Tomato Butternut Squash Rice & Shrimp

It’s Sunday, which means that most of you are preparing for a healthy week ahead. You’re steaming veggies, soaking beans, making batches of baked chicken, brown rice and packing salad ingredients into mason jars. 

I love Sundays. Every Sunday is a mini revival. Monday starts a new week, new beginnings, new opportunities and a new focus. Each week, I try to focus on something different. Perhaps that means try a new exercise series, eat something different or try to be more organized. I like to set goals, make to-do lists and think about what I’d like to accomplish this week.

Spicy Tomato Butternut Squash Rice & Shrimp

This week, I’m focusing on three things:

1. Prioritize better.

2. Exercise in the mornings.

3. Drink more water.

What are you focusing on? Trust me, writing down your goals for the week and putting them somewhere visible makes them much more attainable. Give it a try! 

If you’re the same way, you’re looking for recipes that you can make ahead on Sunday for the week. Today, I have the perfect recipe for you! It’s easy to make and doesn’t take much time to clean up (it’s a one pot wonder!).

Try it for dinner tonight and double the amount of rice but keep the shrimp the same. Set aside the extra rice in the refrigerator and then, using those leftovers, swap in your protein of choice throughout the week. Perhaps it’s that baked chicken you prepared or simply, a handful of beans! 

This butternut squash “rice” packs a spicy and flavorful kick with the smoked paprika and chili powder. It pairs wonderfully with mostly everything, so it’s a great base for other meals. Get creative and toss in some olives, some avocado or some spinach! 

You can find this recipe over at Against All Grain.

Don’t forget about this video on how to make the rice:

Hi Ali, When I go to look at older recipes on your blog, i get an error (#zlrecipe-container #zlrecipe-innerdiv{font-size:.8em}) Do you know if anyone else has had this problem? Very excited to try this recipe btw! Thanks!
I haven't heard of that problem yet! I'm sorry to hear that - which recipes are you trying to access, I can try?

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
