Eating Keto or low carb and need lunch ideas?

If so, check out this healthy Shrimp and Avocado salad that’s anything but boring! The fresh lime and cilantro dressing makes it super flavorful and delicious. If you have the time, marinate the shrimp and veggies ahead of time with the dressing for maximum flavor.

I love salads for lunch because they are easy to customize with desired veggies and add ins. This simple dressing is very yummy and can also be customized by seasoning to taste. Next time I may add some cumin or Sriracha for spice! Yum.

I loved this salad for lunch!

Such an easy and satisfying meal idea that’s yummy even if you’re not eating low carb! This would be a great lunch idea to prep ahead and take to work during the week. If so, consider separating the marinated veggies/shrimp mixture and lettuce so the salad lasts longer.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
