MEDITERRANEAN CHALLENGE - DAY 2
Welcome to Day 2 of our 7-Day Mediterranean Challenge! Today is all about simple, simple, simple recipes. All three of today's meal options are also vegetarian. As we learned from our study of Blue Zones, by simply opting to eat less meat, and more fruits, vegetables, fish, and eggs, we can change our health trajectory for the better. Today, we recommend trying:
HARD BOILED EGG ON WHOLE WHEAT
This breakfast takes little time to prepare, especially if you already have hard boiled eggs in your fridge to consume. When preparing, I like to add olive oil right when I take a hot and toasty piece of bread out of the toaster. That way, the oil soaks right in, creating a heavenly texture.
OVEN ROASTED VEGETABLES
Roasted vegetables are perfect in their own meal or to balance out other items as well. This healthy lunch can be prepared the night before and packed immediately so you have less to do in the morning before heading out for the day.
GREEK VEGETARIAN ORZO SALAD
This simple pasta dinner only has a few ingredients and takes less than 20 minutes to create. Toast up the pine nuts while the pasta cooks. This a great dish for leftovers, especially for an easy lunch later in the week!
