May Mediterranean Diet Dinners Menu

Monday’s dinner is a bit like having Friday become Monday. What? you may ask. I love to serve fun food on Fridays. For us, that would definitely include burgers. But these Monday burgers aren’t just any burger; they’re healthy, Mediterranean diet-friendly, and easy to make. You do need to chill the patties before a quick cook in a skillet or griddle so give yourself about 30 minutes for chilling. It will be worth it!

Tuesday’s dinner is a quick meal bursting with Mediterranean flavors and ingredients. And perfect for the warming days of spring. Think salmon and couscous.

Wednesday’s dinner is a quick and delicious skillet meal featuring eggs as the protein and comfort food ingredients we love. Serve with warm whole grain bread or toast to round out the meal. And a salad would be a great addition!

Thursday’s dinner is another quick seafood dish made with pasta. Look for whole grain pasta for this meal and add a large salad filled with in-season fruit, greens, and veggies. I can’t seem to add enough radishes to meals these days so my salad will be filled with these gems!

Friday’s dinner is fun food. Which just might mean… the grill. Depending on the weather, it may be outside or in a large skillet indoors. But I have high hopes for that weather and the beginning of Mother’s Day weekend. Serve with all the healthy condiments you love, like 5 Minute Greek Tzatziki Sauce or 2 Minute Greek Dill Yogurt Sauce, along with whole grain pitas.

The Treat is in honor of Mother’s Day. Lemon, lavender, and all things sweet! If you’re serving brunch, you may want to head over to our Mother’s Day page for lots of delicious ideas!

Have a beautiful, healthy & delicious week!
