From the Genius Mind of Matt Stone: 180 Degree Health Spicy Shrimp Veggie Dinner

Shrimp in Spicy Tomato Broth from 180 Degree Kitchen

I am not afraid to admit to being a bit of a food geek. Meaning I read everything I can get my hands on and try to figure out what the optimal diet is and what to avoid. Like most folks who get the old expiration date stamp, I have struggled with eating foods that were 'healthy' but not tasty. Those days are over my friends, thanks in part to my good pal Matt Stone of 180 Degree Health! As the name implies, Matt does not cotton to the usual FDA Government food pyramid, calories in calories out hoo hah, he flips all that over and reveals the true reasons we get fat and how to get your body to behave. The nice thing is, he's pretty funny and handsome to boot. So that's the kind of guy I like to get all food geeky with!

Check out the video Matt made for Shrimp in Spicy Tomato Broth (the pics are from my doubled batch I made for dinner, I love it with Trader Joes fresh Roasted salsa, OLE!)

Here's how to make it your own self!

  • 10 frozen shrimp
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • Splash of water
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas
  • Salt
  • 1-2T butter
Directions… Throw it all in a pot and cook it until it’s done – except for the butter that is. Stir that in at the very end.  Takes 5-7 minutes. 
Want a closer look at mine?

Please do visit Matt and tell him Debbie sent you, he may give you a smart ass reply but know that deep in  his heart he is smiling. 

 Thanks Matt for all you do, I love my new audio set, I can listen to your dulcet tones any old time I want to geek out on food and health.  You can get your own 180 degree health weight-loss metabolism boosting audio/ebook here.
It's a steal for all the valuable and cutting edge info Matt provides. And he has a nice voice.

One last thing, want a yummy dessert? Try this!
I made this one up....

Take about 1/2 cup plain yogurt
add 1 Tbls or so of Coconut Manna by Nutiva (you can use coconut oil but it won't taste quite as sweet)
handful of fresh raspberries,
Throw it a bowl and call it dessert!!

Sweet and Spicy Dreams!

  1. This is one of Matt's more genius inventions. It's whole food, but so fast to make. His salsa recipe is super easy and cheap, so you could do that too if you wanted to be more "from scratch." I'd bet you could Asian this one up stirring in coconut milk, using different veg and some hot sauce. I'm gonna try that this evening.

    I've gotta get me some coconut manna. That looks the shiz. Yum.

  2. It is pretty money for sure Jenny! I have a fresh salsa maker guy, he makes ten-twelve kinds and sells them for like nothing.. love that guy. Oh that Asian version sounds super yummy too.
    And yes, Coconut Manna is the shizzle fo sho.
