Lemony Quinoa Shrimp w/Corn and Green Onions

I know I've been a little quiet this week. I've been pretty busy at work so when I get home I just don't want to turn on a computer after walking away from one. But I'm cooking up some winners for next week so I hope you'll stick with me. :)

Lucky for me, Susan from Adventures in my Kitchen did a little blog swap. I guest posted for her this week and now she's sharing with us! I asked her to share a 'real' meal since we all know I lack in that area.

Enjoy!


Hey y'all! I'm Susan from Adventures in my Kitchen. I'm so happy to be guest posting for Chelsea today! I mainly blog about healthy, easy, budget-friendly meals and snacks. I also try to throw in some tips, tricks and nutritional information to help you out. Today I'm sharing one of my favorite recipes for when the weather gets warmer- Lemony Quinoa Shrimp w/corn and green onions. It's great as a side or main dish! Quinoa and shrimp are both full of protein so this dish will keep you satisfied without feeling that food coma!
