What is the great thing about the Mediterranean diet? There are no intense restrictions or off-limit food groups. The meals are incredibly delicious and often simple to make. Desserts you ask? Yep– those too, in moderation. You’ll see which treat I picked in the menu below.
But first, let’s talk about what a Mediterranean lifestyle is, because this “Diet” is all about the lifestyle instead of a list of do’s and don’ts.
Here are some loose guidelines in adopting a Mediterranean Diet lifestyle:
- Eats lots of fruits and veggies which are nutrient-dense, loaded with fiber, aids digestion, and full of anti-inflammatory benefits.
- Add more fish and lean protein to your weekly eating. Fresh fish provides healthy omega-3 fatty acids and a variety of vitamins. And lean chicken is rich in protein. The key is to keep a healthy balance in food choices.
- Incorporate legumes and healthy grains. These plant-based options are full of fiber, and protein, and will help keep you full!
- Savor life, enjoy friends, and be grateful. A Mediterranean Diet lifestyle is all about slowing down, eating mindfully, enjoying the people around you, and being grateful for the beautiful life you have.
Now, let’s take a look at this week’s menu!
Mediterranean Diet Skillet Dinners Menu
Monday’s dinner is a delicious soup filled with healthy plant protein, nutrients, and fall flavor! Add whole grain bread and a large green salad to round out the meal.
Tuesday’s dinner is a skillet chicken dinner with September-perfect veggies, all made in 20 minutes.
Wednesday’s dinner is a personal favorite. If you love curry, this will be a soup you’ll make often. Packed with healthy grains and lots and lots of flavor, it’s hearty and delicious.
Thursday’s dinner is a simple salmon skillet recipe that’s quick and easy to make in no time. Add a healthy grain and veggies… or a seasonal salad filled with tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onion. A 10 Minute Greek Salad comes to mind for Thursday’s dinner!
Friday’s dinner is a Southwestern-flavored skillet dinner perfect for serving family style. Prep the grain ahead of time for a quick-cook meal. If you have an Instant Pot or multi-cooker, see How to Perfectly Cook 1 Minute Instant Pot Quinoa.
The Treat this week is all about pumpkin spice.
Have a beautiful week!
