Simply Healthy Fried Shrimp

I’m just going to come right out and say it – these are the best dang shrimp I’ve ever made in my life... like, I just finished my plate and immediately had to come write this because it’s so dang good the whole world needs to know about it!

Thankfully, it’s super simple and an affordable take on a fancy shrimp dinner out, too.

Ingredients:
– 1 lb bag frozen raw, shelled, deveined, tail off (saves so much time, worth the extra pennies)
– 1 tbsp coconut oil
– 1 egg
– 3 cups coconut flour
– garlic powder (to taste)
– cumin (to taste)
– ground ginger (just a little)
– Trader Joe’s Vegan Chicken-less Seasoning Salt (tastes like Ramen noodles seasoning)

Directions:
– place shrimp in strainer and run cold water over it until thawed
– microwave coconut oil until it becomes liquid (about 15 seconds)
– combine coconut oil with one egg
– in separate mixing bowl, combine coconut flour with seasonings
– dredge shrimp in egg wash, then flour mixture, then place into air fryer
– cook on 380 for 10 minutes, flipping once halfway
– enjoy!

Honestly, the only thing that’s missing from this recipe that would make these coconut shrimp is the coconut flakes. I didn’t have any and was too impatient to wait to make these, LOL, so I decided to make coconut-flavored shrimp (thanks coconut oil and coconut flour!)

One of the best parts of ordering coconut shrimp at a restaurant is banking on getting some sweet and tangy sauce to dip those bad boys in. I’m still working on perfecting a keto-friendly sweet chili sauce, but, what I made today is ah-mazing!

Sauce ingredients:
– Hellman’s Real Mayonnaise
– fish Sauce
– G Hughes Sugar Free BBQ sauce
– sriracha
– salt
– ground ginger
– garlic powder

I didn’t measure them…ended up using about two big spoonfuls of mayo, one big spoonful of BBQ, plenty of fish sauce and sriracha and minimal seasonings. I like to measure to taste and make adjustments throughout until it’s exactly what I’m going for.

If you can’t tell, I love to cook/bake based off of my mood. And if I’m out of an ingredient, I’ll improvise! Today was a good day for improvisation. I’m definitely making these air-fried shrimp again.

Shift Your Mindset, Elevate Your Lifestyle in 10 Days

Ten days. That’s all it takes to reset your mindset and shift into better living.

How? It’s simple! Join me in the 10 day challenge. hannahchristine.challenge.com But, before I even get into the details, just look at my results from my latest 10 day challenge⤵️



I’ve been eating clean and exercising moderately for 10 months now. Between that and drinking pure therapeutic ketones for nearly 8 months of that time, I’ve lost 75 pounds. INSANITY, y’all!

You see, I’m a recovering athlete. I grew up playing traveling soccer and doing competitive cheerleading.

I’ve had my fair share of struggles… too low on the scale and far too high on the scale, too. Emotional attachments to food, you name it.

Injury after injury, I had to have knee surgery in high school and back surgery right after graduating college. On top of all of that, at the ripe age of 26, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and enough was enough. You can catch my full health journey timeline here.

Enter clean eating, easing into exercising and drinking ketones.

The 10-Day Challenge is the perfect way to jump into ketosis. Familiar with the ketogenic aka keto diet? Well, when you eat keto, your body is in a state of nutritional ketosis. Drinking one serving of Prüvit pure therapeutic ketones puts your body into a state of nutritional ketosis within one hour.

Your routine will be simple:

– Drink one serving of caffeinated ketones in the morning
– Fast until lunch (drinking coffee or tea is okay but only black or with 0g sugar cream)
– Eat a low carb meal (think meats and vegetables)
– Drink one serving of decaf ketones mid to late afternoon
– Eat another low carb meal for dinner

That’s it!

Shift your mindset and get your body ready for a healthier lifestyle in just 10 days. Yes – really! Head over to hannahchristine.challenge.com to get your kit.

Keep up with me on my Instagram @healthyhannahchristine for day to day activities.

Put Yourself First

That’s truly what it boils down to: We need to put ourselves first in order to live our best lives. I know, I know, hear me out…

Who/what are you putting the most attention and energy toward? Your friends? Spouse? Kids? Parents? Do you wake up each morning and immediately think of their needs, but never seem to give a minute to yourself to address your own?

I know it’s hard. As a helper by nature, I’ve always wanted to help others, make them feel heard and seen and cared for. But we must first put ourselves as #1 priority, in order to share abundantly with our loved ones.

Personally, I’ve realized over the years (thank you, therapy) I was pouring too much love into others and not enough love into myself. I cared about their happiness first and foremost, and would sacrifice my own just to please them. NOT a healthy way to live, long-term.

If we don’t deal with our own demons, if we don’t take a minute to re-evaluate our true desires and needs in life, then we’ll never be able to be fully expressive. We’ll always feel repressed in some form or fashion.

My autoimmune diagnosis last summer was my wake up call. Enough was enough, Hannah had to put Hannah first. So I did, I have, and I do every day.

I read more, I write more, I pray more. I live intentionally.

You know what it’s brought me? Stronger relationships. More manifested encounters. A better work ethic. Not to mention, I have my health back.

Crazy what putting yourself first just might do for you. Why don’t you give it a try?
