Quick and Easy Chickpea SaladWhenever I’m in a hurry, this is my favorite go to salad. It’s chock full of delicious things like tomatoes, feta, and avocados. This works really well as a side dish, but is perfect for lunch. I don’t recommend storing in the refrigerator over night as the avocado can turn brown and break down in the acidic dressing.Chicken Hummus SaladOne of the easiest Chicken salads to make. It’s hearty and filled with protein and fiber. Makes a great lunch. You can bake, poach, or even grill the chicken. The choice is yours.Persian Cucumber SaladA light and refreshing salad perfect for those summer months. If you cannot get your hands on Persian cucumbers, then opt for English or standard cucumbers.Spinach and Feta Egg MuffinsThese low carb breakfast muffins pack quite a punch of flavor. I recommend using fresh spinach for this dish though. I used kalamata olives in this recipe because they are my favorite type of olive, in addition to it working with Greek inspired flavor profile. However, you can use any type of olive you'd like or simply omit them and add another ingredient. You'll need to adjust the carb content to suit needs.Vegan Acorn Squash Crisps with Tahini-Herb DressingThese delicious crisps are topped with a creamy tahini-herb dressing and served with a small handful of toasted walnuts. A perfect lunch for those who adhere to a meat free diet. This also makes an excellent side dish.Marinated and Grilled Flat-Iron Steak with Blue Cheese CrumblesEvery once in a while I like to add a little steak into my dinner rotation. It isn't a common occurrence, but if you are a meat eater you might know exactly what I'm talking about. Not only is steak a good source of iron and protein, but this particular cut a little leaner than say, a ribeye. If you can't get your hands on a good quality flat-iron, then try skirt or flank steak. Marinate up to 24 hours if needed. You can use both an indoor and outdoor grill for this recipe or even a cast iron skillet in your oven.Greek Zoodle SaladIt's no secret that zucchini noodles are a great alternative to pasta.
