Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Shrimp and Avocado Taco Salad. Where are my healthy fats? Where are my veggies?


Dressing & Marinade:
1/3 cup packed cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil
1 Tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
salt and pepper
1/2 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined

10 oz chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
1/2 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 avocado, chopped
coarse sea salt
blue corn tortilla chips, crushed (optional)


Combine the first six ingredients in a food processor or blender then process until smooth. Place shrimp in a plastic bag then add 3 tablespoons the dressing and marinate in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Reserve remaining dressing for salad dressing.

After the shrimp have marinated, spray the bottom of a skillet with avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil or nonstick spray then sauté in two batches to avoid overcrowding the pan, for 1 – 2 minutes a side or until just barely cooked through. Set aside to cool slightly. Discard remaining marinade.

Layer plate with lettuce, red cabbage, avocados, tomatoes, sautéed shrimp and crusted tortilla chips (if using). Sprinkle with sea salt and drizzle the dressing on top.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
