    • Greek Lamb Wraps

      Lamb isn't just for special occasions. In fact, it's a regular part of the Mediterranean diet along with fresh produce. Our veggie-packed wrap invites you to eat tender, slow-cooked lamb for a healthy, fresh lunch.

    • Spaghetti with Tomatoes and Shrimp

      Inspired by the fresh simplicity of Italian cooking, this shrimp pasta recipe is healthy and easy to make. We used whole wheat pasta for added nutrients, but if you're a die-hard Italian cook, white noodles are fine.

    • Chicken with Minted Yogurt Sauce

      Make magic with your weeknight grilled chicken recipe. The secret is our refreshing, Mediterranean-inspired yogurt sauce. It's low-calorie but full of flavor, thanks to snipped mint and chopped peppers.

    • Moroccan Chicken Stew

      Mediterannean recipes rely on smaller amounts of meat than typical American-size portions. Case in point: this fiber-filled Moroccan chicken recipe. Each serving has about 2.5 ounces of meat but 24 grams of protein, thanks to the addition of beans and couscous.

    • Two-Step Homemade Hummus

      Homemade hummus is just a few minutes away. Serve this famed Mediterranean spread recipe alongside one of our healthy main dishes.

    • Mini Souvlaki Skewers with Fennel Yogurt Dip

      Mini but bold, these bite-size pork skewers make an awesome healthy appetizer recipe. Complete the dish with our creamy, fennel-spiked dip -- one dunk and you'll never want store-bought dips again.

    • Mediterranean Kale and Cannellini Stew with Farro

      Hearty white beans are a staple of the Mediterranean diet, where plant-base protein rules. Here, we slow-cooked cannellini beans with vitamin-packed kale, farro, and fire-roasted tomatoes for a healthy soup you can eat all week.

    • Artichokes with Tarragon Drizzle

      Fresh artichokes grace many a Mediterranean menu. Try our grilled artichoke recipe as a healthy appetizer for only 131 calories per serving. Dijon-tarragon sauce is a fresh contrast to smoky grilled flavor.

    • White Bean Hummus with Roasted Tomatoes

      Thanks to hummus, chips-and-dip fans can indulge with a healthier option. The classic Mediterranean spread is low-fat and low-calorie. Add extra flavor with roasted tomatoes.

      Grilled Swordfish with Citrus, Saffron, and Mint

      Hearty swordfish steaks are sold frozen, so they're easier to find than you think. Top the grilled fish with sweet and tangy citrus sauce.

      Skewered Shrimp Scampi

      Fresh and fast are inherent in this Italian shrimp scampi. Dunk the shrimp in lemon, salt, and pepper, and then toss them on the grill for a quick sizzle.

      Summer Squash Souvlaki

      Mediterranean seafood can be tough to get, so use the trademark seasonings (dill, lemon, and tarragon in this case) to dress up a salmon fillet.

      Mediterranean Pizza

      Don't worry, there's room in the Mediterranean diet for pizza. Just be sure to top your pie with a mashed-bean spread and oodles of fresh vegetables. We love eggplant, zucchini, and fresh tomatoes, and a sprinkling of feta cheese.

      Greek Salad

      Tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, and olives form a fresh foursome common in Greek salads. A homemade Greek vinaigrette makes this Mediterranean recipe even more authentic.

      Herbed Chicken, Orzo, and Zucchini

      Sticking to a Mediterranean diet is easy when dinner takes only 20 minutes. That's all you'll need to saute dill-seasoned chicken and thinly sliced zucchini. Serve with orzo for a hearty, balanced meal.
