Mediterranean Meal Prep Bowls
If you’re wanting to stay on track with your fitness or weight loss goals, even when you’re staying at home 24/7, you need to make these Mediterranean Bowls.
This is probably the only recipe that’s been able to keep me away from eating pizza and pasta 24/7 for the past few weeks. It’s delicious and absolutely healthy.
When I already have it in my fridge, I’m not gonna go through the entire process of preparing dough and baking it with some pizza sauce and cheese on top in the oven. Although, this may or may not have happened quite a few times lately – it was for toddler educational purposes.
Maintaining A Healthy Weight Living Indoors
Currently, I’m kinda doing intermittent fasting, because my toddler’s been keeping me quite busy. I kinda forget to eat throughout the day and then I get really hungry at 5 pm, so having a healthy meal ready to eat in the fridge is kinda like a guardian angel that I created myself.
I know, my current eating habits might not be the best way to maintain a healthy weight, but this is the way life is currently. It’s not perfect, but it’s okay right now.
With the lack of natural movement aka walking in everyday life, I find it even more important to focus on a super clean diet right now. I’ve also decided to prioritize and actually do a 20-30 minute Pilates and Barre workout every day at home. I will be sharing my favorites in a roundup very soon.
Mediterranean Meal Prep Bowls Ingredients
These meal prep bowls are simple and filled with really delicious whole foods:
- this 15-Minute spicy chicken and chickpeas
- a healthy fresh salad with cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers and scallions
- a good amount of hummus – don’t be stingy with the hummus, okay?
And that is it!
How To Meal Prep
You prepare all of the single parts, put them in separate containers and you’re good to go with your meal prep. Although, when making the salad, make sure to not add dressing and to not be cutting the tomatoes – use whole cherry tomatoes if you’re going to meal prep this otherwise it will get soggy within a day.
I hope you enjoy these!
Put the cabbage in a salad bowl and massage it with the lemon juice, garlic, some salt and a little bit of olive oil.
In another bowl make the tomato cucumber salad by combining the chopped tomatoes, chopped cucumber, scallion, parsley, 1 tbsp olive oil and some salt.
To start arranging your bowl - add some cabbage as the base, then top with the spicy chicken with chickpeas, the salad and place the hummus in the middle.
