This healthy, easy shrimp with garlic sauce stir-fry will bring you to the happiest moments in your childhood when mom cooked dinners and invited you to eat.

She was right! And when you refused to eat garlic, but mom reminded you that garlic's antibacterial properties and antioxidants make your skin look better?

Weight Loss Tips

  • When having shrimp in your meal, avoid deep-fried shrimp and opt for a flavorful baked, steamed, grilled, or boiled shrimp dish instead.

  • If you don't care for shrimp, choose skinless, boneless chicken breast which has 46 calories, 9 grams of protein and 1 gram of fat per ounce.
