Weeks are so busy and the last thing I want to think about is what am I going to eat for lunch. This healthy mediterranean bowl is the perfect meal prep lunch to make this week! Minimal cooking and all these fresh ingredients will give you that boost of energy you need to make it through the second half of the day.

The recipe below calls for some specific veggies but you can make this what you want. Sunday after coming home from the store you can easily prep this healthy mediterranean bowl and just leave the lemon juice and spicy feta dip off to the side so your lettuce doesn’t get soggy. Everything else can sit in a container together making it so simple to grab and go in the morning. We love these meal prep containers. The last thing you want to bog down your morning when trying to get out the door is making your lunch.

Mediterranean salad bowl ingredients

I’m tell you, your co-workers will be jealous as they eat their boring salad with just lettuce and cucumbers. Worst of all, they will be hungry in an hour because their salad wasn’t filling. And what will they do? Grab for something unhealthy. But, not you! This healthy mediterranean bowl will fill your up for the rest of the day letting your focus on work and not your growling stomach and cravings for chocolate.

Alternatives

If you are trying to eat a less meat, make this without the chicken! Roast some chickpeas up in a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. With or without the chicken this bowl will fill you up! We like to just squeeze some lemon on top. But without the chicken you will miss some of the flavor that the marinade gives this bowl. When I make this without chicken I will still make the marinade and drizzle it on top like a dressing. So refreshing!
