Shrimp and Corn Salad

This salad is super light and refreshing. If you’re like me you’re looking for bulk foods that keep you fuller longer and this does just that. You can even add more veggies if you’re in to that. Green chiles would be really delish.  Phase one of my cut has officially begun so I’m really focusing…
