    1. Hi Samia,
      If there are other types of fish you can eat, substitute those for the shrimp. In many of the recipes, vegetables would be a wonderful addition. For example, broccoli would be delicious as a substitute for shrimp in the shrimp fettuccine. Hope this helps.

  1. Breakfast is FOR SURE my favorite meal of the day and these all look amazing! I work from home, so I have made a habit of cooking breakfast every morning. I’ve become a pro at omelets, but these are great for a little variety! Pinning for later use 🙂
