I wanted to share some of the recipes we did for the Mediterranean Diet. These were really good and I would definitely make them again. I did the Mediterranean Diet for almost a month. I know I just posted about this diet yesterday (I forgot I had it in my drafts!) but after taking about 2 months off from the keto diet, and trying a different diet (which I liked A LOT), I am going back to Keto.
I hate to admit it but, I just failed. I gained weight. I wasn’t going crazy with carbs but apparently I did enough to gain weight. So clearly my body just does NOT work with carbs. Period. It’s disappointing. I was hoping I could try something different and find a medium ground…but for now…back to what worked. This time, no modifications. Following the keto diet properly.
In the meantime, here are some recipes we liked a lot.
#1- (Taste of Home) Mediterranean Chicken on top of cauliflower rice
It was really delicious! We both liked it a lot. I added crumbled feta because, duh. The cheese really made it awesome.
#2 – Mediterranean Bowl (modified)
Absolutely delicious! Instead of quinoa or rice, I sautéed kale as the base. Then added roasted chickpeas, orange peppers, tomato, red onion, cucumber, hummus, Falafel from Trader Joe’s, topped with feta and a little Goddess dressing. It was so good! I loved it. But this is my flavor profile. Michael said it was good but not his favorite (I think he would have preferred chicken in it).
#3 – Frittata
It was a “use up whatever I had in the fridge” kind of frittata. Keto and Mediterranean diet friendly. Paired it with a side salad of mixed greens and Primal Kitchen Green Goddess Dressing.
It was SO delicious! Eggs, heavy cream, cheese, ham, orange peppers, spinach, onion, garlic, seasonings, topped with ricotta.
I wanted to get this posted before I forget again 🙂 and will be sharing some new recipes soon from my keto reboot!
