Delicious + Nutritious Mediterranean Bowls

Happy Tuesday W+A friends! Last night we decided to grill since daylight is sticking around longer and longer these days, which we are loving! We were in the mood for something healthy and a bit different from what our typical weekly dinner go-tos are. Its a super easy recipe and and even easier cleanup. Here's everything you'll need for these tasty and flavorful bowls: 


Ingredients (all)
2 lbs of boneless/skinless chicken thighs
1 English cucumber 
1 container of cherry tomatoes 
1 large can of chickpeas (we used Goya) 
1/2 red onion
4 tbsp pf olive oil 
1 tbsp of lemon juice
oregano 
garlic powder
salt 
pepper 

Ingredients (marinade)
1 large garlic clove 
1 tbsp of coriander 
1 tbsp of cumin 
1 tbsp of cardamon
1 tsp of cayenne pepper 
2 tsp of smoked paprika 
2 tsp salt 
black pepper to taste 
2 tbsp of lemon juice 
3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil 


Directions
Prep your chicken first. Combine the marinade ingredients in a large ziplock bag or bowl. Add the chicken and use your hands to make sure each piece is coated. If using a ziplock bag, we find it convenient to close the bag then massage the bag to disperse the rub all over each chicken thighs. We suggest marinating overnight or at least for 3 hours. Place chicken on the grill and cook the first side for 4 to 5 minutes until nicely charred, then turn and cook the other side for 3 to 4 minutes.Remove chicken from the grill and cover loosely with foil. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into cubes. While your chicken is grilling you will toss your tomatoes with 1 tsp of olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano and add to a grill safe rack or griddle covered with foil. Grill tomatoes for about 10 minutes until lightly charred.  

Drain and rinse your chickpeas. Place in a bowl and mix 1 tbsp of olive oil, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic powder and oregano to taste. Thinly slice entire cucumber and 1/2 red onion. Create your bowl by adding chickpeas, tomatoes, red onion, cucumbers and chicken. Add a dollop of tzatziki sauce, greek yogurt or your favorite dressing. Garnish with finely chopped fresh parsley.

Air Fryer Wings + Bacon Brussel Sprouts

We love using the air fryer for "frying" up some of our favorite dishes. From chicken parmesan to veggie fries and most recently bagels and empanadas, the options are endless. So we decided to try out wings this time around. It was the perfect meal for some Sunday football enjoyment. We also roasted up some crispy brussel sprouts with bacon and a cranberry balsamic drizzle for a complete meal. Here's everything you'll need for this dish: 


Ingredients (for wings) 1 lb of chicken wings or drumsticks  1 c of nonfat greek yogurt  3 tbsp of paprika  1 tbsp of oregano  1 tsp salt  1 tsp pepper  Juice of 1/2 a lemon  1 c of Kentucky Kernel seasoned flour  1 c of hot wing sauce (Frank's or your favorite hot sauce)
Directions Mix together yogurt and lemon juice with all seasonings and spoon into a ziplock bag. Add chicken and let marinate for at least 4 hours. In a flat plate evenly spread out your seasoned flour and dredge your wings in both sides. Make sure to preheat your air frye…

Almond Poppy Seed + Lemon Loaf

Happy Spring? Yes,  the question mark is needed since we had snow on Long Island today and its April second! I'd say about six inches total, but we were happy to see the sun appear and melt some of it away. We started on some yard work this week and were getting the itch to start doing some planting, but luckily we held out for now. Snow days are always the best days to test out a new recipe and typically we like to try our hands at baking on these chilly days. We just received some of Kodiak Cake's new Almond Poppy Seed Power Cakes Flapjack + Waffle mix. We decided to use this delicious mix for some baking and the results turned out absolutely delicious. Here's everything you will need: 


Ingredients 3 cups of Kodiak Mix  1/2 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt 1 tsp vanilla extract  1 tsp of baking powder  3 eggs, beaten  4 tbsp of unsalted butter, softened  1/3 cup of brown sugar  3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk  3 tbsp of lemon zest  1/8 cup of lemon juice 
Ingredients (glaze) 1/2…

Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

We made it to hump day! As I currently sip my coffee this morning, I have a batch of banana coconut chocolate chip energy bites (recipe to come) for a little after dinner or post gym snack baking in the oven. We had a pork loin in the fridge big enough to feed a small country so we decided to cut it and make three separate meals for the week. I typically roast my pork in the oven Cuban style and add some roasted potatoes, but I figured I could set it and forget it with this easy and DELICIOUS recipe below. I'm not embarrassed to admit that John and I pretty much polished off almost the entire pork loin. Here is everything you'll need to make slow cooker honey Parmesan pork roast: 


Ingredients 3 to 4 lbs of pork loin roast 2 tbsp dried oregano 2 tbsp dried basil 1/2 tsp black pepper 3/4 tsp salt 2 tbsp garlic, minced 1/2 c honey 2 tbsp olive oil 1/4 c soy sauce 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions Place pork loin in slow cooker. In a medium bowl, combine the dried oregano, dried basil…
