Shrimp and Vegetable Stirfry

I had a great workout!  Suprisingly, I was the only there and had control of the tv!  Watched the tale end of Rachael Ray (gorgeous scallops with a butter bread crumb topping!) and the first part of Barefoot Contessa (a gorgeous fruit plate, and now I know how to cut a fresh pineapple!).

But let’s start with my lunch!

  • 1/2 block of Ramen noodles (noodles only)
  • 3 ounces bean sprouts
  • 3 ounces diced red cabbage
  • 3 ounces chopped broccoli
  • 3 ounces chopped baby carrots
  • 2 tablespoons spicy Korean bbq sauce (20 calories a tablespoon – and VERY spicy!)
This whole bowl is 438 calories, 9.1 fat, 29 protein, 62 carbs and 8.8 fiber!

Because this takes so long to eat, I end up taking half of my insulin, eating half, then taking the rest of my insulin and that works out pretty well.

Although before I worked out my blood sugar was 189, which is okay (I may have underestimated the carbs in my grapefruit!) and when I got back I tested it and it was 262 – what??!!

I tried two other fingers and both gave me a 98 reading, so I am sticking with that.

My elliptical workout is only 35 minutes.  Since my treadmill starts at 60:00 minutes and counts down, I made this cheat sheet for myself and just tape it on the machine.

my speeds were 3.5 mph, increased speed 4.0 mph, then very hard 5.0 mph

For 35 minutes I did 2.0 miles exactly and it said I burned 195 calories, but again, who knows!

Come back tonight for my Potato Horseradish Crusted Mahi Mahi recipe!

  3. That lunch looks amazing! I love Ramen and this is such a good way to make it healthier!

  4. How do you make the noodles? Do you make them with boiling water and then just not add the spice that comes with it?

  5. wow,l what a great stirfry 🙂 and glad to know i’m not the only one who watches the foodnetwork at the gym!! lol

  6. Your shrimp bowl looks great. We had a shrimp-pasta toss for dinner tonight — it had spinach, mushrooms, onions, garlic & tomatoes in it. Love shrimp. I go very light on the pasta even though it’s whole wheat because anything in the grain family raises my blood sugar too much.

  7. I love the cheat sheet! I’d need the SAME thing!

  8. Thanks for the post on my blog and the workout routine. Your lunch looks awesome!

  9. Nice cheat sheet… good workout too! I’ll be back for that recipe… 🙂
