Eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard. I think that is the biggest complaint I hear from my friends is that it’s difficult. It is time-consuming. They can’t figure out how to meal plan. Yet, for me, that is the EASY part. I can dream up menus for the week that are loaded with vegetables, healthy fats, and protein. I can look in my pantry and just throw something together with chicken, tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar. One of my favorite easy lunches is a bowl with Green Giant Corn loaded with vegetables and protein. Yesterday my lunch was put together in about fifteen minutes. There’s nothing hard about that!
It’s a colorful collection of my favorite foods (shrimp, tomatoes, and corn) paired with the citrus flavor of lime juice. Garnish with cilantro and you have a zesty shrimp salad that can be enjoyed hot or cold.
One serving of Green Giant Whole Kernel Sweet Corn is just one point. If you’re following Weight Watchers, you know what you can add to make this lunch work for you and your daily plan.

You can add almost anything to this basic recipe to increase flavor or boost your daily vegetable intake. Some of my favorite extras to add include peppers, romaine lettuce, or lemon juice instead of lime juice. You can also swap shrimp for chicken and cook in the same garlic and 21 Seasoning Salute mixture. It’s so good either way! However you stir up your shrimp bowl, it’s easy to pack for lunch at work. I like it both hot AND cold so it’s not a big deal if I can’t heat it up or I’m on the go.
