It’s perfect for dinner or you can meal prep it to have lunch throughout the week! This Greek Chicken and Rice Bowl recipe is great for easy meal prep and midweek work lunches! So we live in walking distance of Cava. If you’re not familiar with Cava, it’s like a Mediterranean/Greek Chipotle. And it’s AWESOME. But ya know, it costs money and they probably use industrialized oils to cook their food. That’s the thing about eating out – you never know the ingredients. So instead of spending my hard earned money on less than stellar ingredients, I decided to make my own version of their Greek chicken and rice bowl.

Greek Cauliflower Salad

I always think those Greek salads made with orzo or quinoa look really good. The problem is that I don’t eat orzo or quinoa. I could make this with rice, as I do eat white rice. But now that Trader Joe’s sells organic riced cauliflower, I’m basically obsessed. I bought six bags last week. It’s just me and my husband. I don’t need six bags of riced cauliflower. But I was worried they’d sell out soon – which they did. I’m completely in love with the riced cauliflower. It so easy and incredibly healthy. While I didn’t make this meal specifically as a low carb option, it is a great low carb salad. Plus the cauliflower is way healthier than quinoa, orzo or rice.

Paleo Greek Green Beans

There’s a Greek restaurant that Scott and I regularly go to. I would go all the time if he agreed to it. It’s so good. They have authentic Greek food and olive oil on the table that’s damn near green. There hasn’t been one thing on the menu I disliked and they serve Greek green beans with almost every entree. They aren’t like any green beans I’ve ever had before and they’re so, so good. Stewed, soft, dill-y and delicious.

Ten Minute Greek Salad

Originally, Scott and I wanted to go to Greece for our honeymoon. But after weighing the pros and cons (read: the million hour flight to get there and both of us needing to get back to work) we decided to stay a bit more local to the US. Don’t get me wrong, our honeymoon was ridiculously amazing, but I’m hoping we can still get to Greece someday. The food, the people, the architecture, the beautiful beaches and especially all that delicious food, really draws me to Greece. I especially love that they have such amazing food that is still healthy. Fresh seafood and veggies, delicious local cheeses, amazing wines and everything is cooked in Greek olive oil. I can’t wait to get there someday. In the meantime, I’ll have to settle for making Greek recipes. I came across some real Greek feta, from Greece, with Greek writing on it and…

Greek Salad with Homemade Gyro Meat

If you’ve been reading my blog for more than a week or following my Facebook, you probably already know that I’m kind of obsessed with Greek food. No matter what, I know if I’m at a Greek restaurant I can eat well and the food will still be awesome. The Greeks love to use fresh ingredients, they cook with olive oil instead of disgusting, rancid vegetable oils, and it’s easy to order off of the menu without having to make substitutions. I love Greek food so much that I’m even trying to go to Greece for my honeymoon. And while the beaches and culture and architecture are a big part of that… let’s be honest, the biggest part of wanting to go is so that I can eat at least half of the country. I have a normal appetite and don’t tend to overeat, but if we do go to…

Greek Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Greek food is my favorite food. Dill and oregano are two of my favorite spices and they work really well in these stuffed ‘shrooms, but feel free to add or omit any spices. You can also use feta cheese instead of goat cheese, which was my plan until I realized I didn’t have any feta. I also added red pepper flakes, because I’m obsessed with all things spicy. Greek Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 10 mins Total time: 20 mins Ingredients 6 mushrooms caps, stems removed and set aside 1 tbsp butter, ghee or coconut oil 5-6 cups spinach (it shrinks!) 2 tbsp sun dried tomatoes 1 garlic clove 3.5 oz goat cheese dash of oregano dash of dill Instructions Preheat oven to 375.

Greek Rice

Apparently, it’s Greek week here at AN.   Yesterday I wrote about my neverending love of Greek food. This is actually the side dish I served with the lamb stew.   It. Was. Awesome.   If you digest rice well and are looking for an easily absorbable form of glucose, and want to make things that taste really, really good, you need to make this rice.   I love that it’s not only loaded with veggies, but also healthy fats from the bone broth and butter (which slows the absoption of glucose).

Greek Lamb Stew

Whenever Scott and I are trying to figure out a healthy dinner date, I always suggest Greek food. Not only is the food amazing, but it’s so easy to eat a nutritious meal at Greek restaurants. Beyond lamb stew, they are just the bomb. Taramosalata dip (aka fish egg dip) with cucumbers? Amazing. Mushrooms stuffed with spinach and feta? I die. A simple Greek salad with gyro meat on top? The freaking best salad, anywhere, ever. So I try to cook a lot of Greek food. This week I had a pound of lamb shanks from the farm and decided to throw a stew into the crockpot before I left for work. It turned out so well, and my entire apartment smelled like a delicious Greek joint. Greek Lamb Stew This easy slow-cooked Greek Lamb Stew made in the crockpot is perfect for cold days!
