What to Cook (Jan 27-31): Mediterranean 20 Minute Dinners
Eating healthy, eating delicious, and making dinner fast. Like… 20 minutes fast. It’s what’s for dinner this week!
I had so many emails last week thanking me for the Mediterranean meal plan. Our family loved it too, so we’re on repeat for one more week of new Mediterranean dinner recipes.
What’s different between this week and last? We’re changing it up… a little.
We’re still eating healthy, eating Mediterranean… but this week, we’re making dinner in 20 minutes or less.
With a couple of exceptions, we should hit that 20-minute mark most nights. Which is kind of awesome for busy weeks. And let’s be honest, even if it isn’t particularly busy, who doesn’t love getting dinner done and cleaned up in record time?
Here’s what you need to know about the Mediterranean Diet:
What is the Mediterranean Diet?
The Mayo Clinic describes it like this:
“The Mediterranean diet is a way of eating based on the traditional cuisine of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. While there is no single definition of the Mediterranean diet, it is typically high in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nut and seeds, and olive oil.”
What Foods to Eat on a Mediterranean Diet
- Daily consumption of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and healthy fats
- Weekly intake of fish, poultry, beans and eggs
- Moderate portions of dairy products
- Limited intake of red meat
20 Minute Dinners… it’s what we’re cooking this week!
Have a great week everyone!
