Crockpot Beef & Veggie Greek Stew

This crockpot beef & veggie greek stew is so easy, delicious and healthy. It’s also keto, paleo and gluten-free! I like crockpot meals. They make my life easier. I can throw a bunch of stuff in a pot and take my kids to the park and come home a few hours later and BAM. Dinner is ready. Usually I “forget” a snack and my kids are so hungry they eat it. By forget I mean I don’t bring snacks so that I don’t have any when my kids ask for some. It’s okay for kids to get hungry. It’s good for their digestion and for the amount of food they eat, aprticularly as designated meal times. I’m not against snacks, but I AM against snacking all damn day, which seems to be the norm with kids these days. My son has breakfast at 8am, goes to school, has a snack…

Gluten-Free Greek Quinoa

This gluten-free Greek quinoa is delicious, easy to make, healthy and perfect for meal prep! I have been very, very into quinoa lately. Which is interesting, because it’s not really something I ever eat. I always have some in my pantry, but I make it maybe once or twice a year. But these last few weeks I’ve just been really wanting some damn quinoa. And you know the thing about cravings? It’s often your body’s way of telling you what it needs. Don’t get me wrong, if you’re really craving a chocolate cake or you crave sweets all day long, that’s a good indication you have some sort of gut dysfunction or gut dysbiosis (high levels of bad bacteria, low levels of good bacteria). But if you’re craving salt, fish, greens, nuts, even dark chocolate – it’s a good indication that your body needs something in that particular food. So…

Greek Chicken and Rice Bowl (Gluten-Free, Paleo, Keto Option)

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.

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…
