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!

every night, I have this ritual where I scroll through the photos taken from the day on my phone and pick a favorite, posting it up on my stories with the hashtag #favoritepicoftheday. it’s a fun, sometimes therapeutic way to end and reflect on the day. as I was going through it tonight, the TV was on and I heard the news. ruth bader ginsburg passed away tonight. immediately, I felt sadness and a bit of worry. a worry of the implications politically of her passing. there’s so much at stake in this upcoming election and you all know I don’t get political on here very often, but seeing roma’s little smiley, silly face made me realize that if I’m not being a good role model and using this platform to make the world a better place for her, what kind of mother am I? so VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. 🇺🇸 and as the late RBG said, “real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” here’s my step. 💕 #rbg #ruthbaderginsburg ...

testing new recipes for my partnership with @cookunity and figured I'd share more about it, in case you're new here or missed the announcement earlier this summer (it's still summer, isn't that crazy?! I'm mentally in fall mode already 🍂☕)⁣

next up? my Kale and Butternut Squash Lasagna!
