To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art. – Francois La Rochefoucauld
Ever since I had a lamb burger earlier this week, I have been craving greek food like crazy. So what better thing to make as my meal prep for next week than some yummy greek food!
Close to where I live we have a few greek resturants with the best gyros and lemon chicken soup ever — I mean my whole family craves this soup, especially when we are feeling under the weather. I have always thought about trying to make the lemon chicken soup but figured it was easier to just go grab a large to-go container from the resturant instead. Since I know how delicious they make it, making this soup will probably be a challenge – but I accept it! Normally with this soup I have pita bread with it, but since I am trying to not eat so many carbs and staying away from gluten…I am not sure what I will have with it. This will take some thought…
Meal #1 down….onto meal #2!
What else to make..what else to make. I really need two recipes for the week so that I don’t get bored/burnt out of eating the same thing EVERY SINGLE DAY. I’m a huge fan of meatballs – I don’t know what it is about them, but I find that they are the perfect entree to a meal. I am sure I can find and modify a recipe to be gluten-free and dairy-free for lamb meatballs…maybe with a homemade tzatziki sauce (insert hear eye emoji). In addition to the lamb meatballs, a nice greek side salad would pair well with it to get to a nice 400-ish calorie meal.
What are some of y’alls favorite greek recipes?! I would love to try them out. I am always looking for new recipes and love trying new things as well. Can’t wait to see how Week 3 turns out!
