SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP TACOS WITH ALL THE FIXINS!

Summer calls for grills, shrimp and tacos galore! Make it Mexican night with these Spicy Grilled Shrimp Tacos with all the fixins for your next summer bbq or party! No one will believe you that they’re healthy too! Guys, I’m exhausted right now. There’s also a very real possibility that I’m buzzed too. I’m not going to pretend that this isn’t the first time I’ve blogged under the influence. Hint – It’s another drunken shrimp post.

As I’m sure you all experience daily, life has a habit of getting busy. So busy that fancy meals like these Spicy Grilled Shrimp Tacos are a rare occurrence. The truth is that my life is kind of a sh*t show 90% of the time. If you follow me on Snapchat (search for TheHealthyMaven) then you are aware of how all over the place I truly am.

For as much as I love my job and most aspects of my life, running 3 businesses doesn’t afford me a whole lot of time. I’m usually running between meetings, trying to figure out how the hell to use Final Cut Pro (#youtuberproblems), standing on unsteady tables taking pictures, or snapchatting you shameless pictures of me in face masks.

I don’t eat like a queen everyday nor do I cook everything that I eat. ruth-be-told, I survive exclusively off of two types of food, eggs and avocados. I always always have both of these on hand. I also weirdly have a lot of cauliflower hanging around…not sure about that one.

Ironically, both of these two ingredients are responsible for my current state of mind. The avocados for the sleepiness, because you guys FREAKED OUT over this picture on Instagram and suddenly I found myself flipping my content calendar upside down to share them with you and eggs for the solid buzz I’ve got going on right now (I was at an event celebrating eggs today <–what is my life?).

Between my content calendar and newfound day drinking hobby, I don’t have a whole lot of time to indulge in recipes like these.
