Nourishment Notes


Zucchini provides B vitamins that can help to increase energy levels.


A plant-based meat alternative, tofu is packed with protein. It’s low in cholesterol and fat which may help lower the risk for heart disease. Many brands are fortified with calcium to aid in bone health.


Shrimp is a great source of astaxanthin, a red pigment in the carotenoid family. Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that may prevent cell damage and improve immune function.

Fatigue Buster

  • Use Shredded Carrots

    Purchase shredded carrots instead of peeling and chopping.

  • Use Spiralized Zucchini Noodles

    Purchase spiralized zucchini noodles in the deli section or freezer isle of your local grocery to minimize prep time.

  • Tofu

    Use extra-firm, pre-pressed tofu.

  • Lime Juice

    In the sauce, use bottled lime juice; 1 lime equals about ¼ cup lime juice.

  • Make in Advance

    When you have more energy, try making the sauce in advance. The sauce will keep in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 3 days.
