Mediterranean Pizza

Quick lunch idea: Mediterranean inspired pizza!

One of the best ways to stay energized to eat healthy and accomplish your goals is to add variety to your diet. Nothing too dramatic – just think about the ways you can prepare the foods you love in different ways. Try this easy mediterranean-inspired pizza recipe – you may already have the ingredients so you can make this now!

If you are a Mediterranean recipes fan, you will love my Mediterranean pizza recipe.

So, for this healthy pizza, you’ll need just a couple of ingredients you already have at home, such as leftover chicken or seasonal veggies. This pizza recipe is very quick and easy to make. It is also very customizable, so you can make it when you don’t have time or you want to use the ingredients you have left.

For this recipe, I specifically used wheat pita bread, diced chicken, hummus, 1/4 cup of cucumber and tomatoes, and 1/8 cup of black olives and feta cheese. As I sad, you can add other ingredients, or omit some, depending on what you have or what you like. In addition to cucumbers and tomatoes, you can also add spinach, peppers, avocados, artichoke hearts or anything else. Instead of feta cheese, use mozzarella, or cheese of your choice.

First step is to bake the pizza dough or toast the pita bread in the oven. Instead of using tomato sauce, I spread the hummus on the pizza crust. If you don’t like hummus, spread something else such as pizza sauce or maybe sour cream.

Dice tomatoes, cucumber and black olives. Add veggies on the pizza, then chicken, feta and garnish with fresh parsley and with a squeeze of lemon. Simple, delicious and refreshing. Boom.

Approximate macros for one serving with ingredients I choose are 480 calories, 50g of protein, 41g of carbs and 13g of fat.

Sweet & Spicy Chicken Kabobs

Sweet & Spicy chicken kabob with rainbow quinoa. Meal in 15-minutes.

You will enjoy this delicious kabob recipe with very nutritious quinoa. Quinoa is very high in protein and rich in fiber, much larger than most grains. It is also gluten-free and perfect if you are gluten intolerant.

During summer, we all love light food, salads or finger food. With, of course, light fruit juices or cocktails. Chicken kabobs are a great summer dinner option. This version is a combination of chicken breasts, bell peppers, onions, mustard and seasonings. Simple and easy to make, you will love it!

My favorite vegetables for grilling are red bell peppers, red onions and sometimes I add zucchini.

Cut chicken into pieces and set the oven to broil temperature. They can be prepped in an instant pot instead. Rub mustard on chicken pieces and season with our choice of seasonings.

Now cut bell peppers and onions. Then assemble the kabob with prepared chicken and veggies.

Spray a skillet with olive oil and place on medium-high heat. Place the assembled kabobs in the skillet. Rotate chicken until all sides are seared.

Place the kabobs on a baking sheet and bake in the oven. Bake chicken for about 4-6 minutes. Be careful and do not overcook them or burn them.

Serve them on a wooden plate and garnish. If you are fun of different sauces, you can make several types of light summer sauces and serve them with kebabs.

Grilled chicken kabobs are one of my best grilling options, and they never fail. I love to make them when my friends coming for a summer dinner party, planned at the last minute.

Don’t forget to share with us how it went for you. Once you try it, you will fall in love! Comment below if you have your special grill or greek chicken kabobs recipe.

Have a good day, fit foodies!

3 Weekly Meal Prep Recipes

Here are 3 of the powerful and healthy meals you can eat next week!

One of the most important lessons I have learned while adhering to a healthy lifestyle and diet is the importance of preparation. Meal prep can be a very helpful tool, in addition to saving time, you can better manage your portion sizes and macronutrients. Pick one day to do your healthy meal prepping, it can be a Sunday night or another day that suits you the most. Plan and prepare meals and snacks in advance.

You can prepare any food that is well kept in storage and has a delicious taste after a few days in the refrigerator. Cooked meat or grilled meat, brown rice, quinoa or potatoes, roasted or raw vegetables or other food that is a good basis for recipes for preparing meals.

I’m sharing with you 3 meal prep ideas which I made one week for myself.

The first meal is tempeh with brown rice and black quinoa, which I paired with fresh veggies, cucumber and red bell pepper slices. Cook the tempeh in a skillet with olive oil, garlic, cumin and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. Also, cook brown rice and black quinoa, and chop veggies into slices. Arrange in a bowl and the first meal is ready.

The next recipe is with chicken, sweet potatoes and eggplant. Prepare meat as well as eggplant in a skillet, and bake sweet potatoes in the oven.

The last meal prep recipe is rainbow trout with asparagus and mushrooms. Season the rainbow trout and bake in the oven for 10 minutes, and grill the veggies in the skillet.

Ta-da! 3 very simple healthy meals, from just a few ingredients, which are prepared quickly and very easily.
