This chipotle bacon bowl with grilled shrimp AND veggies is perfect for a summer day. Throughout summer I feel like I pretty much live in front of my grill on the weekends. I love the taste of grilled foods. A few years ago I started experimenting by throwing my veggies on the grill in addition to meat. This has been an EPIC discovery. Fresh, grilled veggies can convert anyone into a veggies lover. I wish my parents had grilled the veggies on my plate when I was a child. I am pretty convinced I would have had a happy plate each and every night. Instead, I constantly tried to barter with my mom to get out of eating all of my vegetables. My negotiation skills were perfected pretty early in life!

These grill baskets are a life saver! Shrimp, veggies, and fruit (yes, fruit, I love grilled peaches) fit perfectly.
Season the veggies with the Chipotle Bacon seasoning for intense flavor!
VOILA! A quick and easy meal that is perfect for advanced meal prep.
I am a huge fan of shrimp because it’s not only delicious, it is also filled with a ton of protein. 4 ounces of shrimp has about 30 grams of protein and is super lean/fat/carb free.
