It’s Greek to Me!

I could honestly say that Greek food is my husbands favorite. He LOVES tzatziki sauce and can literally eat it out of the bowl. Crazy boy! Surprisingly a healthy no fuss Greek meal is easy to make, especially on the BBQ grill. Here’s what I did…

 

Greek Inspired Chicken Kabobs:

1 green bell pepper diced into chunks

5 small sweet peppers cut into chunks

1/2 red onion diced into large chunks

3 chicken thighs cut into chunks

6 wooden sticks moistened

Dried oregano

salt & pepper

olive oil

Alternate the meat and vegetables on the wooden sticks. With this amount of food, 6 sticks can be easily made. Season with about 2 tablespoons of organo and salt & pepper. Lastly drizzle with olive oil before putting on the grill. Cook for approximately 20-25 minutes or chicken is fully cooked.

 

Tzatziki Sauce:

1 plain non fat Greek yogurt

1/2 English cucumber shredded

1 lemon juiced

1 garlic clove minced

1 tsp dried dill

salt & pepper

Mix all the above ingredients in a small bowl. Season with salt to your liking. Top with s drizzle of olive oil. You may also add feta cheese if you’re a cheese lover.

 

I completed our Greek inspired dinner with grilled potatoes and a side salad. Mmm mmm mmm! Such a good meal for a hot summer night!

Almond Butter Protein Bars

 

Almond Butter Protein Bars

3/4 cup of old fashioned oats

18 dates

1/4 cup cashews, raw unsalted

1/4 cup of other dried fruit (raisins,cherries, pineapple, etc.)

3 tablespoons of coconut flakes, unsweetened

1/4 almond butter, unsalted

In a food processor, first pulse oatmeal until it becomes a powder. Next add the dried fruit and cashews. Blend until coarse. Add almond butter and a couple teaspoons of water. Blend until it starts to come together. It will darken but still remain crumbly. You should be able to pinch the mixture. Now on a clean board or some wax paper, pour the mixture on top and form Into either a large rectangle to cut into bars or you can make little protein balls. I wrap my bars in parchment paper to stay fresh. If you make protein balls, be sure to store in a airtight container. These will last for a week in the refrigerator.
