Sriracha Shrimp with Zoodles from The MIND Diet Book

I’m so excited to introduce The MIND Diet book by Maggie Moon, MS, RDN. Her book is a scientific approach to enhancing brain function and helping prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia through food. She has a ton of recipes in the book (including one from me) that will boost memory and improve heart health.

I tested out a delicious recipe: Sriracha Shrimp with Zoodles from the MIND Diet Book. This is now going to be one of our quick, go-to recipes. It has protein from the shrimp, spice from the sriracha, and delicious zucchini and summer squash to make the zoodles. Zoodles are “noodles” made from vegetables. You can use a spiralizer to cut the vegetables into a noodle-like shape. I don’t have a spiralizer, so I just used a knife and cut it really thin. Check out the recipe below.

Maggie included my recipe, Edamame, Amaranth, and Chimichurri Nourish Bowl, in her book, too. The Nourish Bowl is a bundle of love and nutrition in one, well-balanced dish.

You must check out her book, The MIND Diet. Your taste buds and brain will benefit from all the fabulous dishes and memory-optimizing meals.

    What is the other food pictured with the shrimp dish? Is it rice?

      Yes, that scoop above the shrimp and zucchini noodles (zoodles), is a scoop of rice.
