Tzatziki Chicken Cauliflower Bowl

Anyone else a Zoe’s Kitchen fan? I can’t get enough of their Cauliflower Rice Bowl introduced on their updated menu last year. Lightly seasoned cauliflower rice is topped with cucumbers, feta, dill, and creamy Tzatziki sauce, and then I like to add chicken or salmon for protein.To keep things simple, I used a store-bought Tzatziki dip made from Greek Yogurt.

Summer Corn, Tomato, and Basil Pasta

What do you do with an overload of summer tomatoes, shucked corn, and fresh basil? Create a new dish using them, and today, I was craving pasta! Pasta is not something I eat every day usually, but I am loving Banza pasta made from chickpeas. One cup has about 8g fiber and 14g protein which makes it a perfect base for meatless meals, but also means it fills you up – something key for a carb-lover like myself...

20-Minute Dinner: Flank Steak Tacos

These steak tacos are one of my faves. They use flank steak which is a cut that requires little seasoning and cooks quick on the grill or in the oven (less than 15 minutes!). The secret to juicy, tender steak flank steak is letting the steak stand 10 minutes after cooking before slicing and then slicing against the grain. I top warm corn tortillas with thin strips of steak, a few of my pickled onions, and sprinkle of queso fresco.

Healthier Buffalo Chicken Salad

Easy meal prep BUFFALO CHICKEN SALAD. This chicken salad is so versatile. I love it on crisp romaine leaves to create lettuce wraps or simply use it as filling in a high-fiber whole-grain tortillas. The bold flavors also make it great to serve with raw veggies like cucumber slices, baby carrots, and celery sticks to dip in this chicken salad for a quick and easy lunch. Feel free to add a little extra chicken and celery if you like a slightly less creamy chicken salad.

Vegan Chickpea Burrito Bowls are ones that I love prepping ahead for weekday lunches.  It’s also one super easy to throw together for a quick meal for those weeks when I’ve failed to do much meal prep.  The chickpeas make the bowl by adding not only some major pops of flavor, but also crunch by cooking them in the skillet with taco seasoning (Wildtree is my fav!) and garlic powder.

12-Minute Dinner: Chicken Fried Rice

I like to use Eat Smart’s Vegetable Stir-fry Bag that has snow peas, broccoli, carrots, and shredded cabbage, but you can use any assortment of cut fresh vegetables. When it comes to rice options, use ready-to-heat packages, previously cooked and cooled brown rice, or cauliflower “rice” to go lower-carb. They’re ready in two minutes, and there are lots of whole-grain options to choose from now (even Target’s store brand offers an assortment!). Basically, these pouches can save the day.
